Seems like quite a silly name for a quilt, but we don't know the name of the new arrival yet, and they already have a first child, so I had to throw a 2 in there. The quilt itself is quite different from the last one, though. I was happy with how this one turned out. I still look at it and think of things I could have done differently, but it's all good.
I started with the light pink star fabric purchased at the local Quilt Show and then picked out the white, aqua, and dark pink at the LQS Quilters Market. I knew I wanted to make pinwheels, but I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them.
I kind of wish I had kept the dark pinks in the corners and the lighter colors in the center, but oh well. Can't change it now. I do like the colors together, though; very light and happy for a new baby.
On the back, I used fleece. It's a nice lightweight fabric that's fuzzy and soft. It's perfect for a spring/summer baby down here in the desert. For the quilting, I was trying to create a windblown, wave type of pattern with some FMQ. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Like the wind is blowing the pinwheels.
I am sending it off this weekend! Hope she likes it, and the baby likes it, too! I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts today for the Finished Friday. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
