Pink

This quilt is one I made for Vijay's daughter. She wanted it to be pink and it is. It is very, very pink! I went through the fabric my neighbor had given me and found several pinks in the fat quarter, some of which were not "whole" fat quarters. The concentric courthouse steps pattern seemed to be a good way to show off the pink fabrics and make use of the small amounts I had of each. Here is the result

The quilt is 43 in X 43 in. It is machine pieced and quilted. I wish the quilting showed better. I used a heart pattern (four hearts looped together) in the center. Then used a "daisy & leaf" pattern around the outer part of each. The border is then a woven rope pattern.

Dr. Ramona --
Just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying your blog. Your quilts are really making me miss the time to do hand-crafts! Best wishes and keep up the good work.

Thank you for the wonderful quilt Ramona. It's shockingly pink (I can't stand pink) but I'm sure my daughter will love it. Can't wait to show it to her.

SO beautiful, Ramona. Not just girly-pink, but wonderful and subtle pink. I love the quilting stitches--I can see them OK in your photos. What great work!

Thanks everyone. Vijay, you're such a good father to have passed on her wish for pink when you hate pink so.

It is Beautiful. Any young girl (and a lot of the grown up ones) would love this! I love the daisy-and-leaf stitch.

That is so beautiful! I think the quilting shows up pretty well. His daughter is going to be a happy girl when her father gives this to her.
