Another Pink Quilt

This quilt was made using two blocks left over from making Vijay’s daughter her pink quilt . I liked the individual blocks, but didn’t like them with the other pinks in her quilt. I played around with them and decided to just make the two blocks the “center” of a quilt. I added simple strips of more pinks and one black strip in the same manner as the blocks themselves. The quilt is machine pieced and quilted. It is 50 in X 61 in. I have given it to my friend Theresa and her DSO.

Here is a close photo to try to show some of the quilting stitches.

Oh my, this is SO beautiful. LynnS is right - stunning. When I first saw it, I said "Wow" out loud!

It is quite harsh when you first glance at it because the dark colours arise first. However, the more you look at it, the more the paler colours and patterns shine thru. You Americans have access to such fabulous fabrics. I'm going to have to go hunting for something similar over here!!
Another magnificent offering - I'm off into the cold to deliver my Christmas cards with a much gladder heart now! Thank you so much for sharing it. :)
