Pink and Green Scrappy Baby Quilt

This summer I have been trying to really use the fabrics in my stash and scrap bins.  From bee and guild blocks all the way to baby quilts.  It’s refreshing to go back and see the fabrics used in different combinations.

I had a request for a pink and green baby quilt, possibly with bass guitars.  The pink and green fabrics were no problem.  The bass guitars were going to be a challenge. Here are some of the charms I pulled from my scrap bins.
