It has lovely light and soft wool batting
Addition of a tiny stop border and contrast piping sets off the finished quilt.
The label has a photo of the quilt along with the design details.
I gave it to a friend who was struggling with health issues.
The backing- scrapped backing used up most of the old Christmas fabrics in my stash.
Quilted with freehand Dogwood, the Carolina state flower.
Double Delight, another well loved quilt, still in my collection! I had no double pinks so I used reds.
Left-over blocks were incorporated into the border an effect I really like and it gets those pesky orphan blocks out of your drawers!
The back is a PBR brushed cotton so soft and cozy and it shows the freehand Baptist Fan quilting design.
Scrappy Bargello, I used scrappy pinks only.
For a young girl's Quincinera, she was then all about pink!
The back is also pink!
This was made from the bits remaining from a great niece's applique "Farm " quilt.
Orange Crush #2. Using up a different, darker blue and set on the diagonal. Lots of left over little blocks make an interesting border and help to compensate for my dwindling blue supply!
I liked both of these much better after I gifted them, just as well or I may have been tempted to keep them, I love the pieced borders!
And here is EASY STREET, January 2013.
Quilted with TraditionalBaptist Fan. It is still not bound though the binding is all ready to attach!
Note the combination of the three fabrics that make up the border, just using up what I had.
showing more detail.
and separate feather designs in the borders. The binding is a blue / brown combination that sets off the pieced border. I think borders are very important and should not be something we just slap on to finish a quilt!
The latest of Bonnie's mysteries is Celtic Solstice, not yet bound either!
Swirly curls in the body of the quilt………..
I enjoy pieced backings, they are both practical and interesting.
