Half Square Triangles Baby Girl Quilt

I'm finally posting on a baby girl quilt I made last year. The baby was born and the gift has been given.
I had so much fun picking out the fabrics. 
It was my first quilt made out of all half square triangles. I cut the squares and then randomly sewed them together with a diagonal seam and then cut them in half.

I got a new quilting tool to help with squaring them up. I love it. So much easier to trim two sides before I pressed them open and then have to trim all four sides.

And it's all sewn together.
I'm still working on my machine quilting, and this was a perfect project for it since I could do straight lines.  I put the backing on the floor.....
...and spray basted all three layers together.
I quilted a quarter of an inch from each seam.

The back.

Love the polka dot binding.
