Pink & Gray Patchwork Quilt

For Christmas, Casey received a new sewing machine from Santa.  (Santa didn’t place an order early enough with American Girl for some other items.)  She immediately wanted to start sewing something on it so I pulled out some pink scraps and we started working on an improv scrap quilt.  She sewed a few pieces together and then I did a little work on it while she was in school.  It’s still a work in progress.  But, it sparked some inspiration for me.

As we were working I realized that I seem to have more pink scraps than any other color.  I decided it was time to make a patchwork quilt with all those pretty pink pieces and some gray.  I chopped up all the pink that I could turn into 5×5 squares, added a few more pinks from the regular stash and started piecing.  It turned out to be a nice sized baby quilt at 40.5″ by 54″.  I quilted it with straight lines on both sides of the seams, vertically and horizontally.

I love seeing all the pieces in this quilt from other projects I have made, especially the scraps of Out to Sea with the anchors, mermaids and little ship wheels.

I was stumped on what to use on the back until the I realized I had these 3 beautiful fabrics of about a half yard each from a coordinating line.  Sew them together and the back becomes a quilt on its own!  I love that I could finally use these fabrics because I’ve been a little stumped on what to make with them for a few years.  The binding is a simple gray solid.
