Spring Bouquet


Pink and green …. speaks softly of warm summer days! This quilt was made for another niece and it is queen sized. There is a pair of pillow shams to match, but I never did take a photo of them to keep for my records.

Machine quilted throughout using Sulky variegated thread that picks up the colours in the quilt. Had a bit of a HORROR moment with a marking pen, but got it fixed finally (sort of, unless you look really, really close). Whew!

Yes, that’s me standing beside her quilt.

Have a great day!

Beautiful quilt. Lucky you to get the marking out (mostly). Do you have your own longarm or did you do it on a regular machine?

Green and pink are two lovely colours.
Your niece will be happy to have this quilt.
ciao ciao

That quilt is beautiful!! I never use a marker pen anymore, I once ruin a quilt by using a marker pen that did'nt came out. Now I use the needle tracking technique

It is a very pretty quilt. A nice pattern to show of those large scale prints.

Lovely, cool looking quilt. I really like the delicate floral fabric! You're pretty good looking too!

The quilt looks great - thanks for sharing it with us all. My current huge quilt is pink and green - I think they're very restful colours.
