A sweet little girly quilt

Another little quilty, this one for a lovely lovely lady in my office who is having her first long awaited baby (a girl!) in early October (yes, two pregnant ladies in my office, both having girls, both were due only 6 weeks apart).

As soon as Nabila announced the pregnancy I ordered these fabrics from Sarah Jane Studios and crossed my fingers that she was having a girl (she is!) I chose a very simple square in square pattern so that I could highlight fussy cut squares of the sweet little girl and little outfit images from the fabric. And though it turned out a little smaller (it measures about 36" x 45") I'm super pleased with it.

Kind of bummed that I didn't take a picture of the back before I gifted it though... it's simple, but sweet, half pink, half baby blue with a strip of the balloon print fabric in between. I love piecing backs that are (almost) as cute as the fronts, it's like getting two quilts in one!
