Pink and Blue Charity Quilt

15 04 2013

Pink print squares plus white squares plus heart print in medium value equals sweet patchwork  for a baby girl. Visual “pop” was added with solid pink inner border and binding. And the pink flowers in the blue outer border add a contrasting yet coordinating finish.DSCN4158

I must admit I had help in constructing the quilt. Linda and Lori were my right hand women during a recent sewing retreat. Linda added some of the prints as well as the pink solid and the blue print for the borders from her stash for making charity quilts. Most of the ‘twosies’ for the Four Patches were strip pieced; Lori kept a stack of ‘twosies’ near her machine for leaders and enders while piecing her Crab Apple quilt.DSCN4207

I machine quilted a continuous heart and loop design in the interior, loops in the pink border, and spirals in the outer border. Lovingly made, this quilt will be donated to a charitable cause.
