A good friend of mine from way back when and his wife just had their first baby. And it's a girl! Squee! Everyone seems to be having boys lately, and I was excited to get my pink on! I used part of a jelly roll on it that I had previously used (in conjunction with a matching charm square pack) on this quilt.

I used this free pattern from Moda Bake Shop for the blocks, only made 9 of them, and then put a small border around it to bring it out to about 40 inches square.



For the back I pieced a few lengths of fabric together, then split them, rotated, and inserted a column of blocks I made with the various leftover fabrics--I was excited when I found a few of the charm blocks left over from the last project! Some pink polka dot binding and I was good to go!

I can't tell you how much I love this interpretation of the same fabrics!  This pattern is so fresh and modern looking and makes me want to learn to quilt Grin  The first quilt is lovely but this one is AWESOME!

Thanks AM! I think it also reflects how my quilting and style has changed in the last 3 years, kind of fun to look back!

I really adore this pattern, Mare! It's modern but still classic, in a way and so lovely for a baby. I like that you used bright pinks too!!

Thanks guys! I want to make this pattern again with the same fabrics in each block so that the "woven" look is a little more continuous looking!

I love the back as much as the front! So cute!

Thank you, I have been working on piecing more into my backs lately since my friend klum78 did an awesome quilt block presentation at our guild meeting last month!

It's pretty!  I love that you used your leftovers.  I am not so great at doing that.
