All of the blues and greens I have been working with lately have made me crave pink and red. I haven't started making anything for my baby, so I decided to finally work on some quilts. I don't find out the gender of my babies, so I prepare by making two quilts.
My starting point for a baby girl was this voile fabric, by Anna Maria Horner, intended to be used as a soft backing:
I spent this past weekend working on a scrappy Sparkle Punch quilt top. We had a snowstorm on Sunday, cancelling church. I made a ton of progress while my husband was good enough to play with the kids most of the day:
A lot of these fabrics were pulled from my overflowing scrap bins. I aimed to choose pink fabrics that had at least one other color in them. To be honest, I had intended to do a baby girl quilt that was much more dramatic with a more vibrant and saturated color scheme. But it was that darn gorgeous Pretty Potent voile that changed my plans. If I do have another girl, I probably will just make an additional quilt more true to my original vision.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
