Bright Girly baby quilt

Another beautiful baby born, another girly quilt called for!

I began by creating long strings of pinky pretty fabrics and then cutting them into strips. 

I also worked on blocks and placements that would create contrast to 'sing' but still work all together.
I found this challenging. 

So I auditioned lots of fabrics. 

While putting the blocks together, messes happen. 

Auditioning for the back

Making my decision and then creating the label. I used a sweet flannel that I had for the binding because she may be one of those babies that like to rub soft fabrics. You never know!
And I also decided that hand embroidery on the blocks was also called for, since I can never leave well enough alone. Hope she enjoys it in great health and happiness for years!
