Friday Finish... Soft and Pretty in Pink

 Quilt stats

Name:  Soft and Pretty in Pink
Design:  Wonky Stars 10.5" blocks
Size:  66" by 74"
Fabric: stash fabrics
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white

I finished this  during spring break.  This is a quilt I made as a gift for a dear lady.  She really loves pink and roses and all those soft florals that I had lingering in my stash from years gone by.  I have been calling this quilt "holy pinkness" but think I should actually come up with something soft and romantic to call it.  It was fun to make because I was really able to embrace the pink and the flowers and just let it happen in all its femininity. I used a variety of backgrounds for the wonky stars and solid pinks in several shades with low volume prints in pink and white.  The binding is a tone on tone floral print from the stash and the back is a pink on white print.  Holy pinkness!  I cannot show you the label but there is one.  I free motion wrote a message.  I love doing that.

Quilted simply on each side of the blocks in Aurifil 50 wt in white, this quilt will be perfect for a soft snuggle quilt on the couch while having a nap or watching a movie.

Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish It Up Friday!

  4. That is very lovely! Right up my alley. When I first started reading quilting blogs, they would say something about keeping it from being too pink and I was always confused - how can it get too pink:)
