A pink quilt for a new baby girl! I cut 5-inch squares from various pinks in my stash, as well as squares of Kona white. I then sewed 50 of those together to get the 99 half square triangles used in this quilt.

I had some adorable Alexander Henry "calico cat" fabric from 2008 (!) that I finally found a use for as the back of this quilt. I could never bring myself to cut up these elongated cats, but backing was a perfect use!
I quilted it using a very free form orange peel pattern on the triangles. Some are fat, some are thin, but overall, it turned out fine.

After washing, the quilt turned out nice and crinkly.
The finished quilt is about 40 x 50 - a nice size for wrapping up a baby!
Here is a better look at the cats on the back!
Welcome to the world, baby Natalie Mae!
Merry Christmas to all and I am looking forward to lots of quilting in 2016!
