Baby's Pink Diamonds

     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. 
My 5- inch squares in a variety of pinkish fabrics
     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.  
Before binding and washing.  The binding is a pink Kona cotton. 
 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!

Take care,
