It's a simple design created from half-square triangles. I used a variety of prints in navy, teal, soft red, coral, and yellow, based off the fabulous navy Tsuru floral. The light value fabrics are a spinoff of my much-loved mixed neutrals-- this time I used soft pink shot cottons, some Nani Iro double gauze, and off white Kona solids. I think the mix lends a sweetness to the quilt without being overbearingly pink.
I backed the quilt with a Kaffe Fasset shot cotton in Apricot. It is so incredibly soft! The binding is a fun teal floral I found at Jo Ann fabrics. I had originally planned to use a navy binding, but I'm not one to follow plans.
I always feel so funny naming quilts that I give away-- but for the sake of the festival, I've named this one "Welcome to Nunaka." It has particular meaning for the family. But Nunaka also means "a good place to live," and my niece is certainly going to be greeted with a whole lot of love.
