Pink Stars {Ready, Set, Go! Challenge Quilt}

My black and white and pink all over baby quilt is now finished!

After the top was together, I decided at the last minute that I wanted to use some of the solid grey batik fabric as my backing instead of my normal flannel-for-baby-quilts MO. As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics and Aurifil thread to use and share with you!

For the quilting, I use the same paisley floral motif that I recently used for my Bear Tracks baby quilt. I used white Aurifil thread and tried to keep my individual "flowers" about the size of an index card so that the quilting wouldn't be too dense.

I used black solid batik for the binding and used black thread to machine bind the quilt.

Now my challenge assignment is complete! Thank you as always to Island Batik for choosing me as ambassador and a really big thank you to Accuquilt for letting us play with your super fun machines! I will admit that I was skeptical of how much I would like using the Go! cutter and I really loving using it.
