Pastel Poetry

This is a baby gift for a friend of mine, due in July, obviously having a little girl. Her baby shower is tomorrow, and right on time- I finished the quilt today!

It's a very simple pattern, just blocks. It's a simplified variation of a free pattern available on Amy Butler's website (though the name escapes me right now, and I'm too lazy to go look it up!)

Quilting is just free hand loops/swirls, done on the midarm. It's a pretty simple thing to do, but I love the textured effect that it gives over all. I think the next time that I try out this type of quilting design, I'll spread it out some- this ended up fairly heavily quilted.

The quilt is lovely. And the quilting is fantastic. Great job!
