Okay, I have a secret to spill about me. I think I finally like pink! Its so weird because I've never like it before. Its always been this way, I don't know why. There have been a few exceptions, like once I owned a mauve a-line skirt, but thats it for at least 10 years now, absolutely nothing else since. Until I saw this post at Cluck Cluck Sew by Allison. Maybe its the desire for a baby girl in me, maybe the color is growing on me. Okay, its probably both!
So two weeks ago I was staring at my fabric stash and all the pink jumped out at me saying "cut me!" I needed a few more coordinates. Nothing a trip to Joanne's doesn't fix, right? There was no waiting this baby wanted to be born.
This was such a fun quilt to make because I really began to fall in love with each fabric. I especially never thought orange and pink went well together but now I do. Don't you?
All the fabrics I used are from various line by Denyse Schmidt, who else? I know, my obsession is getting a little out of control. But I'm okay with that. I added the grey print to give the eye a spot to rest on. I picked that idea up from Rita at Red Pepper Quilts, except she usually uses a black and white print. I think grey did the trick.
Okay the new love for pink didn't stop with this quilt...I also went and bought a hot pink satin top from F21 with matching nail polish (see above), and a new shade of pink lipstick.
For the backing I used this calico print I've had for ages also from Joanne's. I've saved it not know what I'd ever use it for. It went perfectly.
