One Pink Heart for Baby

Earlier this year I made "one pink heart" quilt for a young friend recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  She asked me to make another one for her pregnant friend who has been with her along the journey and is due to have her baby in October.  It is very close to the first one, but not an exact copy.  This one is 35 in X 45 in.  Because of the smaller size, I machine quilted it just a bit differently.  Both have the center area with 5 X 7 "white blocks" and the outer striped white-on-white border.  Both have the one pink heart.

I find white quilts difficult to photograph, but this one shows the two different white fabrics used

This one shows some of the quilting
The back is simply white muslin.
