Baby quilt: Blue and green nine-patch blocks

Here’s the second baby quilt for Maggie’s House that I delivered on Christmas Day.  I forgot about taking a picture until the last moments before the sun dipped below the neighbors’ house, and even then half ended up in shadow with the rest tinged in pinkish golden sunset light.  I quilted it in straight lines, mostly stitch-in-the-ditch using the nine patch seams, plus extra quilted lines in the middle of each block and through the sashing.  The back is a soft flannel in a sailboat print.  It’s my first quilt using white sashing, which looks so lovely in all kinds of other quilts I’ve seen and yet I dunno, I think I prefer the intensity of pure colors.  I used a tiny white-on-white floral print instead of strictly white, a detail that I like in person which doesn’t show up in this quality of photo.
