Here's a small quilt I just finished. The contrast between the pink and the yellow is somewhat off-key, or 'tart' and thus it reminds me of a tangy pink lemonade. The squares are 4".

It's baby size, and honestly I don't have anybody in mind for it.
There's a lady coworker whom I don't know (she works in another region of the country than I do) who just had a baby girl, but I'm debating whether or not to send it to her, as we've never met.

For now, my cat thinks it's hers. It can always be washed if I do find someone to give it to!

The original inspiration was an aquarium with star fish in it. The quilt doesn't look anything like it, but that's where the idea started.

Beautiful quilt and it is true to your inspiration, I love it!
I would call it after the star fish if it were mine as it really does look like them!

Very pretty and the pink and yellow certainly work together in this quilt.
