Could you imagine having 3 little girls and really wanting a boy? Only to find out that baby #4 is another girl? The lucky recipient of this girl is a beautiful new baby girl with a dad who was really hoping for a boy. Also, he’s a Jets fan. Shocking my husband, a devout Giants fan, let me make this quilt.
Seriously, the dad is ecstatic with his new bundle of joy. When asked to make the quilt, the goal was to not make it too girly using pink and green. I started pulling fabrics and the idea came to me. I would use 1.5″ and 2″ squares in pink and green to give the quilt the right touch.
Luckily most of the fabric was in my scraps and no new fabric needed to be purchased for this quilt. This may be a first. Cutting the very small squares took a while, but the piecing took longer.
The small squares did exactly what I wanted; green with a just a pop of pink.
Laying out the quilt took a couple different designs and this is the one I decided on.
A diagonal pattern worked out great for these small squares. Strips of where formed to make piecing the top easier.
For quilting I wanted something simple that didn’t overpower the quilt. Binding is a solid pink and the back was a green print.
