Ava's Wall Hanging

My step-daughter is moving into a new apartment on July 1 with her boyfriend, who has a little girl: Ava. I thought it would be nice to make a little wall hanging to decorate Ava's new bedroom.

I used the Spell It with Fabric patterns by Moda Fabrics for the letters. They are so easy to make and I love the size; each letter measures about 9 1/2" high by 8" wide. For the diamond, I downloaded Libs Elliott's Electric Diamond paper-pieced pattern by

I used pink and purple scraps as well as a fun black and white print for the background. 

For the quilting, I used Aurifil thread in colour #2479 (pink) in 50 wt. The stitching lines are about 1/4" apart and I quilted them with my walking foot.  

The backing is a super cute Cotton & Steel print I purchased a long time ago.

I sure hope my step-daughter and Ava's dad like the wall hanging!
