Retro flower quilt finished

And here is the second quilt destined for Vancouver. I was scratching my head a bit over this one. Though the requested colors were pink and purple, I was afraid that I would get caught in another "pinky-pinky"overload.

To balance it, I inserted a multi-colored pastel flower in the middle and found a light green fabric to use as a border matching one of the shades in the center. 

This fabric was also inserted in the backing to counter the rosy tones.

As the little girl is also fond of butterflies, I found a fabric that I thought would be appropriate. The quilt is reversible, come to think of it. I thought to embroider some butterflies on the flowers in the front, but decided against it in the end.

In the vertical strip I inserted different pinks, purples and creams I had left over from another project. The entire quilt was stippled. 

Once again a little self-promotion. Final measurement: 43" (109 cm) x 64" (162 cm) - a crib quilt with some extra width to tuck the little one in at night.

Have a rosy day!



  1. I love the way you incorporated the fabrics into the backing. It makes it truly reversible. Nice work.
