A very pink baby quilt

The couple whom I made this quilt for are having a baby girl in a few months. I thought it would be fun to use the same pattern from their wedding quilt for the baby quilt.

The top is done, but it will be awhile before I get it quilted as things have been busy around here and that will continue for some time to come. And, I'm not sure how I will quilt it. Suggestions welcome.

44 x 44 inches.

The back of one section. I pressed the seams open.

I made changes from my original plan as I went along, deciding to float the star in a field of pink.

All fabrics were from the stash and the limited amount of each one determined the design direction. Thankfully I had enough of the background pink, which is a very old Jinny Beyer that has made it into many quilts. I have no idea why I bought that much of that fabric. It must have been on sale!

A few scraps will become a block that might make its way onto the back. Binding is done, but back is waiting for a trip to the quilt shop. I don't have anything in my stash that will work.
