My DH's nephew and his wife are expecting their first baby in April. They already know it will be a girl. They didn't want a pink or blue baby quilt. When you say it like that, I wouldn't want one either. Sticktly pink or blue can be over done and sick looking. They saw a quilt I had made years ago and really liked it. This was the result of going through my scrap bag and trying to use up all I could.
So, I poured through all my scraps and fabrics on hand and started to work using fall earthy colors just like the one above that they liked so much.
Sorry this picture looks so dark. There is an outer border to be added in the deep orangey pink color. The binding will be the orangey pinks in all the fabrics I have leftover. The backing fabric is white on white with butterflies. As far as the quilting goes, I think an all over free motion quilting design is best. It didn't take long at all to get this cut and put together. I am pleased with the result.
