It's a Girl!

A young couple at our church are expecting a wee one soon... and It's a Girl!  I love making baby quilts and especially ones for Baby Girls. I just love the colors used.  This girlie has a pink and green nursery (I LOVE PINK AND GREEN!).  Before I knew the nursery colors, I found this cute purple with pink flowers fabric in the sale bin at Hobby Lobby and snatched it up. I knew it would make its way into this quilt. So I added a bit more pink and green and purple.. and a touch of white.. and here you have it!

I found this cute green polka dot after finding the purple fabric and knew it would perfect for the backing... love how the thread color (Petal Pink Essential Cotton from Connecting Threads) looks on the back.

Hubby wanted to have a part in the gift also, so he did his quilting magic.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, he is having fun experimenting with various straight line design ideas.

I have another baby quilt to start soon.. this one for a little fella on the way. Bright colors and a jungle theme.. should be fun!
