I've seen some beautiful quilt ideas lately that I've just not been able to stop thinking about -- this rainbow one and this triangle one and these two that I love so much! I finally had to jump in and make one too. And I have a fun excuse for a pinks and purples, baby size blanket -- my brother Dan and his wife Danielle are going to have a baby girl in just a few months!

Just looking at the bolts of soft fuzzy pinks all lined up in my cart made me so happy while I waited at the cut counter.

I hadn't yet decided on a plan for sure until I sat down with my washed fabrics and some scissors. But triangles it is! Owen helped lay them out as I cut so I'd know when I had just about enough for a quilt top. (This is my favorite way to sew - let's just see what happens and hope it turns out wonderfully.)

It's been a while since I've tackled a project like this and I'm excited!
