Hot Pink and more Pink!
This is my latest baby quilt to go to its new owner born just a few weeks ago and the request from the donor was that it be pink, pink and more pink.
By happy coincidence I have been working on largely monochromatic designs in my charity quilting group "Giving Hands" where we have been concentrating on using light and dark values within a colour family to create contrast. This is where the pattern (called Fresh Beginnings) came from too although I altered the borders a little.
The border fabric (and the strip on the back) is a gorgeous little alphabet number from the "Love U" by Deb Strain for Moda, just perfect for the job. The spotted backing material also comes from this range.
The little squares are scrappy from my stash - some cute hearts, some Jan Mullen fabric, some textured solids...and a few fussy cut donkeys for whimsy.
I really love the pop of yellow on the back and I adore the scooters! Maybe a Vespa is something this little girl will aspire to one day. :)
