Coquette Patchwork Quilt


This quilt was actually made from scraps I purchased from another quilter.  Does anyone else do that?  I love the Coquette fabric line, but wasn't sure I wanted to commit to a large fabric purchase, so buying a small scrap bundle was just perfect for me.
Just a simple alternating squares pattern using Kona snow for the background fabric.  I love how the pale pink and floral prints give this a vintage feel - perfect for a sweet baby girl :)

I used some leftover squares on the back as well as a mottled pink print from my stash.

The quilting was done with straight diagonal lines through the background squares.

And finished up with a binding in spring green.  See? I did have a productive week last week!

  10. So soft and girly. Absolutely perfect for a sweet baby girl. I was just thinking of asking my SIL if she had some specific scraps I could buy from her. So you're not alone - I think it's a great idea!
