Pretty in Pink!

My son dropped in for a visit last weekend wanting to know if I had anything for a friend whose wife had just had a baby girl!

I didn't, so I made this....

(The photos are a little on the blue side; must've been the light!)

I had some charm squares left over from the last baby quilt I made so they were 


perfect!

I supplemented from my meagre stash of pinks and bought some pretty pink 

solid for sashing....


And appliqued a heart in the corner!


Some straight line quilting....


And a machine finished binding, simply bringing the backing to the front!

Ooh, better go, Ben's here to pick up the quilt!

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy sewing!
