Hearts and flowers

After the birth of my daughter I decided we need at least one pink and girlie quilt in our house. Up to now everything was very boy-orientated, so it was time for a change. And what is more girly than hearts and flowers. I started by cutting lots of hearts in 3 different sizes from different pink fabrics and lots of squares from different green fabrics.I then pinned them together from large to small...trying not to put the same fabrics next to each other.
By putting the heart-filled squares together in fours I created flowers. I then pieced them all together with plain squares in between to seperate the flowers from each other.
Add a bright pink border and some hand quilting and voila! One very girly pink quilt. (that the boys had to hold up so I could take some photos - Thanks boys!)
