Eden Baby Stacks

Some friends of ours recently had a baby girl, and I decided to gift them a quilt.  I have quite the stash of charm packs, so I decided to make another Baby Stacks quilt.  I love the colors and prints in Lila Tueller's Eden-I think it's just perfect for a baby girl!  I chose one of the green prints for the borders, to help tone down the pinks and purples a bit.

Top and binding are Eden by Lila Tueller (charm pack plus 1 yard of 1 print)
Back is from the Loralie Harris Breast Cancer line
Finished size is 38" x 38"
Again I used some straight line quilting-I love the effect it gives the quilt after washing!

Front and back:

Some detailed pics:

I love using charm packs with 42 charms because I end up with a few extras.  I only needed 40 charms for the stacks, so the remaining pieces end up in my binding.  This is the second time I've done this, and I really like seeing the little bits of piecing in the binding!

that's beautiful. I have 2 eden charm packs and a dozen fat quarters (plus solid yardage) to make a twin quilt for my daughter. I just can't seem to settle on a design.
