Pretty in Pink

Just finished the little log cabin baby quilt for a customer and it was so sweet I thought I'd share.
Last night I cut all the alternate blocks and side triangles for the 25-patch quilt and started putting it together. When I finished I was 2-9.5" squares short of fabric to make the corner triangles! I should have enough to piece the squares together so I can finish the quilt. I guess that's what happens when you work from your stash. I did find the fabric I'm using online, but don't want to add it back into my stash, so I'll do the best I can with what I have!

nice quilting..... That is why I like to go 100% scrappy so i don't find myself in a lurch. With that said, I bout 3 large pieces to use a "single" backgrounds.... I am almost asking for problems....

Very sweet! And the quilting is, as always with you, GORGEOUS!! I know what you mean about cutting it to the wire with the stash busting! But that's what quilting is all about- or used to be- making do. It'll be great! Have fun!
