Don't you just love pink and brown quilts?

I just love pink and brown
and blue and brown quilts,
just something about them.
What's funny is that I don't consider myself a
"pink" person.
I do love this quilt a friend of mine made.
In fact, I have put this high on my to do list.
So honored to quilt this one for her.
She wanted it "lightly" quilted to use on her bed.

(click on the picture to see it larger) 
I finally remembered to take a before picture.
Isn't it pretty?
And now the after....

1 layer of QD 100% cotton batting and 
SoFine thread, brown, pink and beige.
The 10" borders were fun to quilt, winding feathers, 
but doesn't show up well in the pictures. 

I just SID around the stars and it really made them "pop".
We had talked about quilting something on them
but I thought she would like it better with no quilting.
Remember she asked for light quilting.

 Her piecing was excellent.

I used rulers for the center and the SID.  Feathers are freehand.
See I have been quilting.
Several more to share in the near future.
Have a nice week.
Going on a retreat this weekend with 
my "besties".  So excited!!!

This is the only picture that I took of a log cabin
quilt made by a friend.
Wedding quilting for her grandson.
The fabric was so busy I quilted an E2E.
The groom and bride loved it.

Memory quilt class

Life has been busy.
I have found minutes here and there
to piece a few tops and
quilt some.
I've showed pictures of this quilt I
quilted for a friend.
This is a memory quilt made for her cousin.
The pinwheels are made from her cousin's husband shirts.
I just love the chocolate background.
This quilt will be a class at
Runaway Quilters Retreat
this fall by my friend Marita. 
She is a wonderful teacher.
Registration opens July 1st.
She has a beautiful picture posted on her class page.
She even made a miniature 12"block and framed it.
Marita also teaches at guilds and retreats.
This is a fun quilt to make and quilt.
Doesn't have to be a memory quilt, could
be made with any fabric.
