When I have a long demanding to-do list....I like to ignore all of my responsibilities and make a baby quilt for no reason. :)
Pinks and purples are one of those colors I love buying, but I rarely sew with unless I'm making a baby quilt. So I have a big pile of fat quarters and random pieces that needed to be used up, and this quilt was perfect!
Although I think it hardly made a dent in my fabric stack.
(That spool wreath that Keera made me is one of my most favorite things. She has a tutorial here...I always get questions about it!)
I decided to only quilt the white and leave the triangles unquilted and a bit puffy. I couldn't decided how to quilt them at the time, but I might still go back and quilt through the triangles with a pink thread.
The fabrics in this quilt are a big mix, but if you want to know the name of a particular print ask me in the comments.
The pattern is Cascade (paper version can be found here, PDF version here).
This i lovely, I really like the simplicity of the design. x
Thank you Kay!

I know the feeling :-).
Beautifull quilt !
I'm the queen of "productive" procrastination! ;)
Oh me too. Today was one of those days.
Beautiful quilt! Love how it 'flows' from soft pink to the darker colours.
That is a very pretty quilt. Love the diamond shapes and your color gradation. Sometimes quilts are bossy and don’t care what you SHOULD be doing instead:)
Haha thank you!
Happy October to you too ! It's kinda funny how giddy I get when I see your name in my inbox - I know it's gonna be good. Love your quilt and your strategy for your to do list ;)
Thank you Colleen! Sending out emails gives me a little anxiety each time...I'm glad you enjoy them!
This is a SUPER CUTE quilt and what a nice design!
That is gorgeous - what a clever idea! (And I'm so NOT a pink girl, but it's really cute!) I love the light turquoise on the back too :D
Thanks Julie! I'm not a pink girl either....which is probably why my pink fabrics never get used and the pile is so big! ;)
I love the pink and turquoise combo so much but I haven't used it in a long time. Thanks for reminding me! Such a fun quilt, love the design! 😊
I am about ready to start assembly of all my pumpkins into a quilt top! Love your patterns btw!
Yay!! I hope it goes together well!!
