Warm vs. Cool HST Baby Quilt

I made this baby quilt for a friend who is having a baby girl.  I had lots of fun picking out fabrics and arranging them into this pattern.  I started with 5 inch squares and matched a warm and a cool color and made 2 HST (half-square triangle) units.  Then I squared them up to 4.5 inches and arranged them until I came up with this pattern.  I thought I copy-catted Jeni's quilt, but I think I combined the warm/cool idea of this quilt with the layout of this one

And yes, as suspected, it went together much quicker than my super scrappy fragment blocks

This little quilt is next up to be quilted so I will have to post it again when it's all completed.  I have some fun variegated thread that I want to use on it...
