Pink

As usual, my plans have changed! If you remember, I gathered together 20 very pink and girly fat quarters with the intention of making a turning twenty quilt for a 2 year old girl. Then realised my mistakes and rethought my plans.

These are not the greatest photos, but you get the message, this quilt is PINK !


Once again I have used a fleece to back it rather than wadding and more fabric. I like the lightness of the fleece, thats it on the left, and below.


I'm still basting at the moment, when I come to do the quilting I want to try to follow the outline of some of those flowers. I feel that the top is flat and lacking a focus, so I thought that I may make some felt flowers and pop them onto the top, over the quilted flowers, or maybe between them. I'm still not decided, and not sure I should make any firm plans! I'll only change my mind. LOL
I should have had this basted and half way quilted already, but life and work are horrible at the moment and I really haven't felt like doing much with my time off,.

I'd like to introduce you to my youngest. His name is Joe. He is the proud owner of the second Autumn Charm quilt.

He got up very early that day! For the island inter school wugby (Rugby) tournament! He played in four matches before coming home victorious! He had just enough energy to say Hi mum and tune into the Simpsons before he dozed off. Aaaw! Cute. :-) I had a hard time waking him to eat his dinner.

Thanks to those of you who visited Kaiys blog, I know she appreciates it. If you haven't had a look yet please do, there is a link in my previous post and another on the side bar.

Take care all.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I've only made one quilt with a fleece backing, it's the one I use most often. It's warm & soft and washes like a dream.

Loulee, it's PINK! (smile) very pretty. I think fleece is a great choice. Good luck with it!

Don't you love the fleecy on the back??!! I am really enjoying them that way, so cuddly. Love the pic of your boy, Tracey

I'm going to have to try the fleece, as my family are older, it sounds nice just for me and my cold legs on a cold evening...
Joe is so cute!

I am also working on a "pink" quilt for my 4 year old grandaughter...since I am not into pink at all, it has been a challenge. Your son is adorable.

I am having lots and lots of fun with my girlie prints too :) I ended up NOT doing what I originally planned. Yet. It isn't finished yet, so who knows.

I am in the process of making matching pink quilts for my Goddaughters and love your idea to quilt over the motifs on the backing fabric! Thank you!

I just have to try fleece for wadding on my next lap quilt. I have oodles in my stash and what a great way to get rid of it. Sweet looking guy!
