Baby Steps

My aunt recently asked me to create a baby girl quilt for her to give as a gift.  She's one of my favorite people to sew for, because she gives me so much freedom!
Just before she asked me to create the baby quilt, I purchased a charm pack of Origins by BasicGrey for Moda. I loved the look of the origins prints when combined with Kona in ash, so I pieced some 4-patches and played with them a bit.  I quilted this quilt with an all over meander and used Kona in buttercup for the binding as well as the backing.
I sent this quilt off to my aunt without a picture of the backing.  The backing was mostly Kona in buttercup with one 4-patch added in to break up the yellow a bit.
I love the floral prints paired with the soft grey.  A girl quilt that isn't pink!
