Square-in-a-Square Baby Quilt

Here is a baby quilt I made for a circulating nurse that I adore. She had two boys and wanted a girl. She wouldn't let her Ob-Gyn tell her the sex of the baby. I found this cowgirl fabric, but resisted the urge to use more pink than I did in the quilt. I used some blue, green, and pink just in case. She got her girl though.

The pattern is a square-in-a-square. The quilt is 40 in X 51 in. It is machine pieced and quilted. You can see some of the quilting in these two detail pictures.

It's a perfectly lovely quilt R. I'm sure she was delighted both with her daughter and the quilt.
