WIP - Baby Girl Quilt

This WIP is for a new baby girl due to arrive in November.

Lynn over at Buttons Quilts makes a lot of baby quilts.  I don't think I've ever seen her make a quilt that wasn't for a baby.  I wonder if there is something in the water in her city -- she knows a whole lot of people having babies.  Lynn uses a lot of great patterns, so I've decided to try one of them -- Zebra Parade pattern from the May/June 2014 issue of Quilty magazine.

The pattern calls for eight fat quarters, but I used yardage of six fabrics.


I've managed to lay out the pieces on the design wall (minus the sashing pieces).  Hoping for a quick finish for this one.


For the Kona badasses out there, that's Chocolate and Camellia.  J  The rest of the prints are Robert Kaufman Pimatex Basics, Screen Print.
