Baby quilt for Nomi, a new little woman child

I am not a big fan of pale, "pretty princess" pink as a color selection for items for babies and little girls.  I find it much too limiting.  After the new year, we will be welcoming a new grand niece to our family and, naturally, I wanted to make her a quilt.  When I found the flannel above, it spoke to me as a inspiration fabric and I began compiling a fabric palette of lavender and dark rose.  Since I am using the Bento box pattern, I also included tints and tones of these fabrics.

I alternated the colors as I constructed the blocks.  Above is a detail.

Borders follow the dark rose and lavender inspiration colors.

These great pink polka dots seemed like a natural choice for the bias binding.

Without my big design wall, photographing the entire quilt is really difficult.

Quilting is in progress using pin basting for the most part.
