Baby quilt with diamonds

I don't really have a name for this quilt. Or I have several. I made this for a friend who had a baby recently. She requested grey and lime.

I chose grey fabrics that seemed neither too warm or too cool, just grey, and for the most part only solids or white, grey or black prints (though there are two exceptions, at least). I paper pieced each block, dividing the blocks (and the fabric) into light, medium, and dark. Once they were rectangled up, I lay them out and moved them around until I liked them.

This color looks more true to me than the outside picture.
I pieced it together, but ran into trouble with the half blocks, they were too big! so it's a bit skewed from what it was supposed to be.

I quilted it with wavy lines and swirls, with a sort of argyle pattern in the larger diamonds.

And here's the back, one of my favorites, Modern Metro in apple (I believe...?)

I'm thinking about writing up the pattern, but I also kind of don't want to see it again. We'll see. When I begin to sew again.
