{Post 1,469} New Baby Quilt Started

I don't know if my readers are ready for this from me, but here is my latest baby quilt.

It measures about 48" square.  Here is a close-up with more true lighting:

I have a couple more purple circles to machine blanket stitch around, and then I will back it with a printed Minkee-type fabric that is white with pastel numbers floating around on it.  It will not be quilted per se.  It is more like a large receiving blanket with the Minkee mitred around to the front.  The tutorial is on my Pinterest page (Joan Parker) under baby gifts.  It is the self binding receiving blanket near the end.

I used scraps from my granddaughter's quilt to piece the top.  I thought I was being original, but I found a similar quilt on someone else's web site.
