black, white & pink baby quilt
originally from the "quilts for babies & kids" book by leisure arts, this was another quilt i had already cut out from quite some time ago that was waiting for me to get my act together and piece it together. consider that act finally done. finishing it marks it as the official second quilt top done for my stash bust-o-rama for the year which is awesome to say since january isn't even over yet. yep, feeling pretty cool about myself, that's for sure.
the last time i did this quilt in 2008, i had an "oops" and one of the squares smack in the middle was going the wrong way... but i left it that way. i'm 99.9% sure that these ones are all going the right way. gold star for emily.
my other plan was to have the stripe this time be pink, but apparently when i originally cut this out i had cut the strip too short. luckily i still had some of the black fabric in my stash box, and was able to come to this quilt's coordination rescue. thank goodness i didn't have to buy more of something. yet... ;)
now, i actually have to move on to quilts i don't already have cut out. originally i was thinking of doing a few black & white only quilts, but after doing this one with all it's black and white-ness, i'm not entirely sure. i guess you'll have to keep checking back in order to see what happens next!
