Scrappy Project #2 - Heart Baby Quilt

Back in September, my step-daughter announced she was having a baby and then in December, we found out she is having a baby girl.

To say that I'm excited is the understatement of the century!  And I immediately started planning a baby girl quilt.  I wanted a scrappy pixelated heart with pink fabric and I went with a grey background.


I carefully chose the pink scraps because I didn't want anything too red.  I really like how those scraps look against the grey.


I quilted it with 50 wt grey Aurifil thread in a cross hatch pattern aiming for the corners of each square.  I really like the look of this and it was very easy to do.

I added one solid pink square in the bottom right corner and added pink to the binding in the opposite corner.





This little baby quilt finishes at about 32" square.  And I'm super pleased with this finish!

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Devoted Quilter for TGIFF.  And this is project number 4 on my FAL list for Q1.
