Offset Diamond Baby Quilt

Soon after finding out that my husband's niece is having a baby, I digged into my pandora box of WIP's and found a project that was perfect for soon-to-be born baby boy.

I had finished making half-square triangles with white and blue fabrics a couple years ago. I was originally planning to make a chevron quilt with these, but I got frustrated because the layout wasn't compelling enough. Pinterest is a wonderful platform, and this time I spent a lot of time on Pinterest trying to figure out how to design a more fun, baby-appropriate quilt with these half-square triangles. From there, offset diamond quilts quickly grabbed my attention, and I finally had a direction.

Here is my initial layout of half-square triangles. Plus my lovely Ripley.

Piecing all done!

I hope the baby and mother will cherish this quilt for a long time.
