    Baby Quilt - I don't do pink or pastel ... or do I?

    Since I took up quilting, seems like all the babies in the family have been boys. But finally, a girl. However, I don't really care much for pink ... or pastels ... I like to do bright quilts with lots of contrast. But I did have some "girly" fabric I had found at Jo-ann's a while back that I actually liked. So, I challenged myself to do a more subdued baby quilt with it. What do you think? The border and the backing are the Jo-ann's fabric -- the backing is flannel.

    I FMQ'ed the baptist fan pattern; kind of boring to do, but it went quickly.

    I really like this little quilt. Is this your pattern or does it have a name? That would be good for either boy or girl, just change the colors

    I saw a picture of a quilt with these pinwheels, and made my own version. The pinwheels are just HSTs. Each large pinwheel is made of 16 HSTs.

    That's a wonderful quilt. Most Moms prefer a quilt like this. Nursery pastels have fallen out of vogue a bit.

    I have seen that print before and thought it was lovely! After seeing your quilt, I think I should give in to temptation and buy it! :-)

    Love your quilt. My MIL always quilted all of her quilts with that pattern and I didn't know there was a name for it. Thanks so much for the info.
