Modern Pink Squares Baby Quilt


Here is the finished Modern Pink Squares Baby Quilt that I delivered to a friend last week. (Even on time despite my walking foot breaking at 3pm the day prior, BEFORE I even started quilting!) It was a very fast to assemble quilt that was inspired by Quilting Barbie's DQS8.



I used less than half of a Moda Scrap Bag that was primarily Oh Cherry Oh by Me and My Sister, a half of a yard of pink Kona cotton and about a yard of white Kona cotton for the 36 x 42 quilt top and scrappy binding. The quilting is done in a modern random grid that is fast becoming a favorite of mine.

What a simple pattern and so sweet, shows off the fabrics! reminds me of a children's book I saw tonight at Target, "Pinkalicious!" Very cute..

I love the quilt! I would be interested in finding out more about the modern random grid quilting. Is it just freestyle quilting (eye-guessing) your lines? I like the way yours looks. Thanks!
