    Black, White, Hot Pink Baby Quilt

    Hi! My husband recently reminded me I hadn't made a baby quilt for a co-worker's new baby. He mentioned it in front of the co-worker. I was really looking forward to not having to make any baby quilts right now and working on WIP's for a while...oh well...there when that idea! I casually asked the guy what colors they did the baby's room in (she's about 4 months old). He said black and hot pink...I'm a scrappy kind of gal so I headed over to Pinterest to see if any black/hot pink quilt combos caught my eye. I found a cute scrappy black/white with pink flowers appliqued to it. I tweaked it a bit. I made less flowers and mine are brighter pink. She did a white outerborder and then pink binding and it just didn't "pop" enough for me. I think I will do simple crosshatching for the quilting, outline the flowers and stitch in the ditch on the borders. I hope they like it...Here's a picture . Thanks for looking!

    Right in front of the co-worker??!! I'd have shot him when I got home!!
    You are sweet to do these for so-workers when you have other desires on your quilty plate.

    Jan-the guy had just driven 6 hrs-1 way-to bring us our truck (DH is a district manager and had driven to the guy's store then flew with the higher ups to other stores so the guy brought us our truck back). He had to tow a trailer with 2 big cabinets on it for my quilting space. So I didn't want to make a fuss. I have a bunch of scrappy tops that were donated to me and I thought I would just use 1 of those. Then I opened my big mouth and asked the guy for colors..what what I thinking???

    It went together really fast since I ordered a charm pack of b/w's and just had to flesh it out with a few of my own. I'm such a scrappy old-fashioned kind of gal that this was way out of my comfort zone...but I really like how it's turning out and will definitely keep it in mind for future baby quilts.

    Great quilt - if he had done all of that for me, I definitely would have asked him for color choices. It will be wonderful and they will be thrilled.

    It's perfect. Nice use of a charm pack. The flowers set it off so well.

    That is adorable, I love it! It's feminine enough, but yet will wash well without showing any spots. Very nice!

    That turned out perfect! I love b/w combos and this would work with any other color/s for the flowers ... I will have to keep this in mind, cuz it would be fast and easy. Great job.

    Yes, remind dear hubby NOT to say things out loud and commit you to something you did not want to do, shame on him. otherwise I'm sure he is just proud of your quilts and a nice hubby too.

    Super cute. I love your color pallet. Simple but stunning. I can see I am just going to have to get on pinterest. The inspiration there is outstanding.

    Really cute!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
