In the Pink
In the Pink is my first finish for 2011. I got a bit of a headstart, because this and a couple of other quilts really should have been finished before the end fo 2010, if I hadn't been sick. This one was all quilted (and had been for about a month!) and just awaiting binding.
This is a flannel play quilt for a friend's baby girl, featuring a few Valori Wells prints. I'm thinking now that I should have called it the Pink Elephant - oh well, I'll save that for next time I use that fabric!
I just quilted around the flower and the flower's centre, and ditch-quilted either side of the striped border, then FMQed a freehand swirl across the rest of the body of the top.
The outer border has a triple free-hand scallop. I used the squares against the border as markers.
Now I just need to deliver this quilt.
