Pink and Gray Baby Quilt

My niece was born last week. She is simply precious, and I cannot wait to meet her in person in a few weeks when I go visit my brother and SIL. I've mentioned before that they decorated her nursery in "non-traditional" colors, gray and deep pink.

I found some pretty fabrics in these colors and pieced together a simple quilt top:

 The resident Princess of Pink helped me take pics outside.

This pic shows the colors better without full sunlight shining on it.

SIL loves cherry blossom trees, and my brother requested adding some in "somewhere" on the quilt. Sigh. Oh how we love the input from clueless non-quilters who don't understand you can't just "whip up" cherry blossoms that fit a quilt you already have in your mind and add them in "somewhere." 

Lucky for them, Connecting Threads just released their new line, Matsuri, and it has an all over cherry blossom print I think is perfect for a backing. 



 I plan to baste and quilt it this week, to have done in plenty of time for my trip to see them!

  3. Congratulations on your new niece! What a very lucky little girl to receive such a wonderful quilt - the backing fabric looks like it will work perfectly. Your "quilt top holder" deserves an A for doing a great job. :)

  8. Congratulations on the arrival of your new niece. She's one lucky little girl to have an Auntie like you. The pink quilt is fantastic! I love the bold design. Such a nice change of pace from the more traditional baby quilts. The Princess of Pink has great taste in socks too!

    Love the cherry blossom print. We have similar tastes because three yards of that stuff, along with a FQ of each of their fabrics was in my last Connecting Threads shipment. My son and I will be making quilts and little backpacks for his girlfriend's twins - boy and girl - who turn two in May (Not his bio-kids but the love's all the same.) I found the child's backpack pattern on Connecting Threads too.

  10. The Nintendo r4 provide support for various ranges of micro SD cards. It support to both memory pack and rumble. It also provides good support for homebrew devices and Wi-Fi games. One of the good features of Nintendo r4 is it consume very low power.here
