Another Baby Quilt

I'm always trying to stay ahead of the baby quilt game. It's so helpful to have a quilt on hand.  Unfortunately most of my scrap baby quilts are girly.  Like this one.
I enjoy making this simple design into a baby quilt.  It is just an easy way to make a patchwork triangle quilt by cutting extra bits of fabric into  triangle shapes as I go and then keeping them aside to put together at a later point.
I think all my fabrics work together because the light fabric is a beautiful romantic rose print by Pam.  It is Pam Kitty Love Bouquets in White.   It goes with all my favorite colors and fabrics.  I think it is so pretty in this baby quilt. I've reordered this print 2 times and since I've used it all up in this quilt I may have to go for a 3rd order.
I like using this elongated Dear Jane Triangle template.  It adds a bit of drama to a very simple design.  I cut my blocks 6".
Of course I'm fond of all the different prints.  Some of the fabrics go back to my London quilt and some are from the Barn quilt I recently finished.
I usually quilt this size top myself but since I've got 3 other quilts ready to take to the quilter, I may just send this one out to be quilted as well.

Such a beautiful quilt, Nanette. I love how you used the same background fabric with all of those prints.

I love that fabric as a background. Really what a sweet quilt. I bet long after the baby outgrows it, it will be a treasured keepsake.

This elongated version of triangles is so much chirpier and cute like a rosy bird beak! I wonder who is this lucky baby who is going to be wrapped in this gorgeousness!

I now have a well lit space in the basement to do my quilting. It sure beats packing everything up so we can use the dining room table!
