Baby quilt top

I started this with really very little idea who it would eventually go to. At the time I'd just found out that a friend was expecting his first child, but even now don't know if that baby will be a boy or a girl. I think I was just itching to make a pretty pink frou frou baby quilt :)

Here is the quilt top done. Of course, hindsight is 20/20 here, I didn't notice when assembling the squares that the solid pink has a fairly obvious difference in warp and weft, and when the light hits it right you can see which squares are facing one way and which are facing the other. Oh well, once it's covered with baby barf no one will notice :)

The dark pinky-red swirls came from my mom's LQS, the fairy tale fabric is Alexander Henry Rock-a-bye rhymes, I only had a remnant but I think it works great for these stars!. The pink solid I have no idea about, an old 1/2 yard from my stash.
