Modern Art Quilt - Red, White and Pointy

My eight year old daughter recently picked this quilt out of some inspiration photos I had saved over the years as her big girl quilt. I wish I could find where I got the photo so I could attribute the praise properly, if anyone recognizes it, I'd love to give proper credit!

First, I took the photo and reverse engineered some measurements, based on how big I wanted the quilt to be.

Next I cut strips and started sewing and laying them out on the design wall.

 And voila, a top was born. I just eyeballed the measurements of the component pieces of each strip, I didn't end up using exact measurements.

For the back I just sewed together a mish mosh of leftover reds, it actually looks pretty cool that way.

The girl loves it! Thanks for looking. She took it to Girl Scout sleep away camp here (right).

Hi......just saw the quilt you made for your little girl. It's very pretty. The quilt photo is from 13 Spools blog. For some reason I remembered where I had seen that one before. Most of the time I can't find quilt post that I want to go back to. You are in luck. :) Here's the link if you need it.

Oh. My. Goodness! I LOVE this quilt! I seriously hope you don't mind but I am going to have to try to make me one based on yours. :D I just stumbled across your blog today, BTW, and I am so glad I did! And your daughter is a cutie too. ;D
