Baby Quilt #2

I made another baby quilt for another friend who is pregnant. This one is for a baby who's gender is a secret until birth, so I went for the gender neutral colors. It is bright and fun.

I didn't have the best light for taking photos, but here they are anyways.

 As you can see I did a diagonal stripped pattern.

 I used a very soft minky fabric for the back. Yes it is bright orange. It matches some of the orange in the top of the quilt, and this baby has parents that both went to the University of Illinois, an orange school.

I added a little tag on the corner that says the quilt is made by me!

I kind of put these two tutorials together, found here and here, and pieced a quilt top instead of using a solid piece of fabric for the results above.
