I'm not really sure what to say about this baby quilt. I started by pulling all the pink and yellow fabrics in my stash and making the 16-patch blocks (the squares finished at 2 1/2 inches.)
I originally planned on using Kona snow for the sashing but when I went through my stash to find it, I saw this blue solid (I'm not sure what color it is) and decided to use that instead. The sashing strips are all 2".
And since I wanted a rectangle shape, I added in the left over ends/scraps from when I trimmed the 16-patch blocks.
For the quilting, I wanted to use the flower motif from Angela Walter's Free-Motion Quilting book. I started the first flower (you can see it if you look closely in the center of the above photo) and then decided to just keep making more rounds of that one flower resulting in just one big flower to cover the entire quilt. I used Aurifil 2710 which is a light grayish blue so it blends really well with the blue fabric. I really love experimenting with different types of quilting and would definitely use this again - either as a bunch of small flowers or as one big off-centered flower.
Yet again, the back the does not match the front at all. But my daughter's love this back and think this is a 100% reversible quilt - which is so "nice" to hear considering the back took about 1/10th of the time to make as the front!!!
