Quilt No. 2 or 'Lucas' Quilt'

This is my third post and I really am starting to enjoy this. Still some catching up to do with the finished quilts but I am hoping to get this all done today and tomorrow so I can start writing about my new projects. So please bear with me.....

The second quilt I made was basically the same in terms of design as No.1 but I used instead blues and increased contrast by adding green and white. I made this for my friend Angela's first born Lucas and it made me feel really good to able give her something handmade.

I used again Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs fabrics with my favourite PJ fabric being Lilac Rose. I was surprised how well the bright green of the KF cabbage fabric worked with the blues. The binding in a dark tangerine frames the quilt nicely I believe.  

Here are the photos:

Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
