Woven Baby Quilt

This is for Emily's baby, due in September/October. My sister's first grandbaby! It only looks a little woven, it is really just pieced squares and rectangles. I have to confess, I planned to make the whole quilt a checkerboard of bright scraps and solid yellows, but I miscalculated on the number of squares to cut and didn't realize it until I was more than half-way through the piecing. At that point, I didn't want to go back and find more scraps to cut, so I added alternating strips on both sides. I think it actually came out more interesting this way.

The back is pieced from a cheerful sunflower print and a stripe that just happened to coordinate.
