baby girl hexagon quilt finish

Another baby quilt -- finished, gifted, and loved. :) 

I made this hexagon baby quilt for a co-worker who is expecting her first baby (a girl! any day now -- she was born today, the day of this post!). I tried to use as little pink as possible as I knew she wasn't a girly-girl pink fan, and during construction of this quilt heard she was painting the baby's room light apple green -- and was able to throw in some green, which I think fit in quite nicely. :)

I used my equilateral triangle quilt ruler to cut half hexagons for this quilt, then sewed them into columns, and sewed the columns together to make the quilt. I used spray starch for this quilt (something I lamented not having or using for the other baby quilt I made this spring), and it really did make sewing these bias-cut pieces so much easier and neater. 

I didn't worry about fussy-cutting any fabrics, excepting for this sweet print. :)

It crinkled nicely after washing and drying! It felt so lovely I nearly didn't want to part with it. :)

This organic molecule print was such a perfect find... the only choice, really, for the quilt from a scientist to a fellow scientist. :)
