April OMG Finish

Well my goal was to use up, and add to, a pile of pink and white half square triangles.
This was the design I started with-

While I like this design (and it is still laid out on my design floor!) it was starting to be bigger than what I needed for the baby quilt I had in mind. I will finish it but it will end up with a different home.
So the half square triangle making continued and I have finished this top which I do really like-
Don't be fooled by that blue sky. The day I decided to take the photos there was an autumn wind blowing and try as I may I couldn't get a shot with the quilt still. On saying that I like the lift the quilt has here.
I based the design on a quilt by Victoria Findlay Wolfe in the book Modern Baby however that one was made with pallelograms but I wanted an easy way to piece the top.
It is now on  Remy, the longarm, (who is behaving) having the ditch stitching done-then I need to decide how to quilt it-suggestions welcome.
Judi Madsen's of Green Fairy Quilts ruler, which I love for straight lines.


  1. Looks like a perfect baby quilt to me! Happy quilting!

  2. Hi,
    Beautiful quilt. Any baby would love it. Have a great day!

  3. What a fun baby quilt. I love the different pinks in it. So, is that a Nolting long arm I see in your picture? Wonderful machines.

  4. Pretty fresh looking quilt. I think you will come up with some nice quilting ideas......feathers, swirls?

  5. Love this layout with pink stars! I recently quilted a similar pattern (Donna's Stars)- it took me forever to decide how I wanted to quilt it lol! Feathers would be pretty with the pink too. Great job with your goal, this is really sweet!

  6. This is really pretty! I have some leftover HSTs that are white & pink & red, and I might do something really similar with them.

  7. What a lovely pretty baby quilt! Blue skies here today but they don't show the frost on the ground and the cold temperatures!! Good luck with the quilting.
