Bloggers Quilt Festival October 2009

Park City Girl is hosting the



and I thought I should be game and participate.

The quilt I have chosen was made for a dear friends' baby girl born in August this year. My friend had been collecting different kinds of pink fabric for years and always wanted to make a quilt out of them, but did not quite dare to have a go herself. So I offered to make it for her, and I think this is my best quilt so far, I love it! (and so do my friend and her husband, she nearly cried when I gave it to them :) )
I had about 12 different kinds of 10 inch cuts to work with. What better to do than a chinese coin quilt on white to showcase the beautiful fabrics she had chosen:

My first time to stipple a whole quilt :)
(pictures were taken after I had washed and dried the quilt)


I chose green binding to bring out the leaves in some of the fabrics



I love pieced backings:


Ready to be given away:


If you would like to look at the pictures in a larger size have a look at my flickr

Thanks for dropping by :)

What's a lovely quilt for a lucky baby girl. Your stripling is great as well. This quilt will be hard wearing quilt for baby - Hugs Natima

It really is a beautiful quilt. I love that you chose green binding to highlight the rose leaves; much better than the obvious pink option!

Kaye Prince said...

This is a beautiful quilt! I love the look of stacked coins; I've been wanting to try this for awhile but (being pretty new to quilting) I haven't gotten that far yet. You did a lovely job!

Oh, what beautiful pinks ! That must have been some job doing all of that stippling, too ! I admire you for sticking with it.
I do love the way the quilts crinkle when washed ! And the way you have it rolled up........I'd love to just have a bushel basket of those rolled up in a corner to choose from when I wanted a little throw !

Leslie said...
