2012 Thing a Week - Week 25 - Red and Aqua Baby Quilt

A friend had her baby two weeks before the baby shower (she's doing great!). They were waiting to find out the gender and I was glad they ended up having a girl so I could use my favorite color combination for a little girl, red and aqua!

The pieces were slightly smaller than fat quarters, 15"x22" instead of 18"x22", so I cut six 6.5"x6.5" squares from each of 9 fabrics. The finished quilt was 37"x55". 

I'm really loving the square patchwork quilts and the straight line quilting. The solid grey backing is from Connecting Thereads. It's super soft, but it seems to already be a bit pilly so I hope it holds up well.

It's straight, it's just the quilt that's curved!
