Pretty In Pink


Another quilty finish in less than two weeks, can't be bad.  I am very slowly working my way through the tops and getting them finished.  Most need the batting and fabric for the backs and bindings to be bought.  Where I can, I've used what I've had had home.
 This was started earlier in the year, but I didn't have anything big enough, or suitable for the back.  This week I bought a piece of gingham, and added white to the top and bottom to make it big enough.
 Then slowly, but surely, I quilted it during the day.  Once that was done, it didn't seem too much of a chore to do the binding.  Again, this was in white, and I hand sewed the binding to the back.
Not a bad day's work in my opinion.  Now I need to work out which top is next and what is needed.  In the meantime, I am sure there are some small projects to be catching up on.

Congratulations with your finish Jane! Pink is not my favourite colour, but I think this is a very pretty combination and the gingham on the backside is also great.

I just love gingham! It can be used in so many ways. Your pink and white quilt is so pretty; some lucky little girl would love it, I bet.
