Hook, Line, and Sinker Baby Quilt

I've got another quilt finish to share with ya'll today. I couldn't resist the wildflowers when I drove through the hill country on the way back from my Mom's:


It's the perfect spot for showing off this little quilt::


This quilt was also in the stack I picked up from Jackie a few weeks ago and while I  was at my Mom's, I stitched on the binding:


This started out as a panel from a kit I bought 4 or 5 years ago. I made the main quilt for my niece's first baby and then recently unearthed this fun panel that I had forgotten about:


I pulled coordinating fabrics from my stash and chose to make hourglass blocks for the alternating squares:


I love the color palette in this quilt:


Jackie used a green thread and quilted a fun pattern across it called "Surf's Up"


Isn't that the perfect choice with the backing? It finishes at 40" X 48". That fun backing came with the kit and I added the orange binding. I don't have much orange in my stash, but this print seemed to be the perfect fit:

I may have a hard time giving this one away!

It is interesting how your hourglass blocks made secondary patterns. The orange, a diagonal , the blue/turquoise a square in a square. Very clever and very bright. Lucky baby! Dotti in CT

It's adorable! I can see why it would be difficult to part with this one.

It is so cute. I love that it made such a nice size just by adding an alternative block. Good choice for the binding with that backing too.

Love it! Perfect setting for those cute fish. I'd be tempted to keep this one.

What a fun quilt. Photographing it with the wildflowers was a great choice.
