Thanks again for all the kind emails during my absence. It was nice to take a break, but I missed you all and I found I really did miss blogging! And so I’m back, sooner than I expected to be. And since it wasn’t a really long break, I don’t have too many new quilts to show you. I did make a few quilts, but they’re mainly just repeats of previously shown quilts. I’ll have a post about those later on in the week.
But for today, photos of my recently completed Strawberries & Champagne baby quilt. It’s quilted and washed and I love it!
I really like this color combination – it’s predominately pink, but with the addition of some gold and brown to make it a bit more sophisticated and a little less sugary sweet.
For the backing, I used one of the pink solids from the front. Then I made up a bunch of smaller improv-styled blocks to create a fun patchwork strip. I stippled the quilt using a pale pink silk finish thread and I really love the way it looks. It perfectly blends with the pink backing and provides just a subtle hint of pink on the front.
It’s bound with a solid brown and measures about 44″ x 53″. And it’s now for sale in the shop.
