Splashing out the pink

I finished hand sewing the binding on this baby quilt yesterday and have started embroidering the label. I'm gifting it to my cousin's granddaughter born on 20th November.  Baby's name is Margot Emily- a very pretty name, I think.
I loved making the quilt, all made from stash.  Four patch blocks using Crumb Blocks from blocks stashed in a big tin and 4" squares cut from favourite scraps.
The sashing, outer border and backing is a piece of fabric I bought a couple of years ago in New Zealand.  It was a bargain from Spotlight. I love the colours in the fabric- the way the pinks, oranges, blues and turquoises splash across the fabric is delightful. Reminds me of Jason Pollock pictures. So the title of the quilt came to me straight away.
Splashing out the pink!
