Special request quilt

It's not often that I get a request for a custom quilt but I recently did by someone at our church
Our pastor's son and Raul's daughter recently got married and soon after that got pregnant and have a little girl now, so Raul asked for a simple quilt in grey and pink with the baby's name on it and otherwise I had free reign- which can sometimes be kind of scary!

anyway I picked a simple star block and sketched it actually on a post-it note and figured I'd make a banner between with the baby's name on it.
First I found this cute owl fabric I had some leftover of, a nice white and then scraps of grey and used my 9" QUBE set to cut it out
 Then the "scary" part was to cut out the letters (also with a GO die) and center it on the banner and double-triple check that it's spelled right!!
 and soon enough I had the top made and Raul loved it!
 I quilted it in a pointy swirl all over pattern, it's quick and easy and seems to be my go-to pattern recently
 and the binding is grey and I used leftover scraps for the backing.
It measures 35" x 48"

Super adorable. Lovely design, colors, prints. I think you did an amazing job. I'm sure they'll love it and the little girl will treasure it always, as she grows.

Super cute! I love the alphabet die, too! Great for personalizing so many things!
