Baby Jane's Quilt

I would never have pegged pink as a fall color, but last month I noticed the leaves on one of our trees had definitely turned pink - not red.  I didn't take a picture, but I searched on flickr and found many more pink leaf pictures - it wasn't just me who had pink leaves .  Why the pink leaf interest?

That is Plants - not Rants - for sale.  :)
Because of Baby Jane's new tumbler quilt!  A new niece is on the way and so I "had" to make her a little quilt. My SIL is decorating the nursery in pinks and orange - love the combo - and the more I worked with those colors the more I was reminded of the more subtle colors and changing leaves outside.  As an added bonus, I was able to pull all of these beautiful fabrics out of my stash! - many of them are from the Meadowsweet line (oh, how I love working with them).

The backing was pieced out of Heather Bailey Bijoux and Meadowsweet Henna fabric.

The finishing touch was the double border.  I attached a flange of fushia and then finished with orange binding.  I love how it turned out - although next time I will only cut the binding 2 inches wide.

The quilt is approx. 36 x 46 inches.
I hope you enjoy it Baby Jane!
