Pretty in pink

I thought that I didn't have much pink or purple in my stash, but I managed to find enough scraps and fat quarters in the cupboard to make this pretty cot quilt. I intended it for one of the girls at work who was expecting her first child and as luck would have it, she had a daughter.
I love four patch, but this is the first time I have used them in this combo. I really like it and think I will use it again, it was quick, easy and worked well with scraps.  Not to mention that I think the overall effect is great!  I am very happy with my own FMQ rabbits on the border, so left the centre quilting very plain.    

Although it is now Spring and the days have warmed up considerably, I wanted to use flannel for the backing.  This was the only fabric I had to buy, so I had some fun and picked sweet monkeys! : )
Happy quilting, Sue SA.


  1. Very cute and the backing fabric is perfect.

  2. You know I love pink, and I love 'patch' quilts. Looks great, and the bunnies are adorable.

  3. Your co- worker will think it's lovely for her new daughter. It's surprising what we can find in our stash, even when we don't think it's there.

  4. That is one adorable quilt. Im sure your co-worker will be thrilled. Crushing on those bunnies - you did such a great job!

  5. All that pink is perfect for a sweet baby girl's quilt. I think the cheeky monkey backing fabric is cute. Flannel makes a lovely backing doesn't it. All warm and snuggly.
