A Quilt For Sophie

My cousin Carrie gave birth to her first child on June 15, and has named her Sophie. Such a pretty name :)
Months ago, I'd started a quilt for Sophie but I didn't get round to quilting it till the little bub was born. Oops.

So I got down to quilting it, and choosing a binding for it a couple of days ago. Kona Celery, I think. (I really need to write colour names on my solids...)

I chose to do the 1000 Pyramids pattern and I just love how it turned out.

I used mostly Heather Bailey fabrics... the dots are a basic from Moda and the solid is, of course, Kona Ash. As for the quilting, I simply stitched in the ditch so the triangles would stand out.

The back is mostly Kona Ash, but I put a block and a strip on there to keep it from looking too boring.
It'll be washed and then sent off to Australia for little Sophie to snuggle with :) By the way, Sophie is cousin to Dylan, who I made this quilt for.

This is one beautiful quilt, Audrie. Just as beautiful as the baby's name. You chose lovely fabrics and the Kona Ash seems to so make them pop even more. Always love to be inspired by you.

That truly is the most awesome pattern ever *grin*

Beautiful and feminine but not at all girly. I love it.

This quilt is stunning!!! I absolutely love it! Do you use a certain ruler to cut all the triangles? We may need a tutorial :-)
I love seeing all your pretty quilts!
