The label has a photo of the quilt along with the design details.
I gave it to a friend who was struggling with health issues. She has since had a successful liver transplant, hooray and PTL!
The backing- scrapped backing used up most of the old Christmas fabrics in my stash.
Quilted with freehand Dogwood, the Carolina state flower.
Double Delight, another well loved quilt, still in my collection! I had no double pinks so I used reds.
Left-over blocks were incorporated into the border an effect I really like and it gets those pesky orphan blocks out of your drawers!
The back is a PBR brushed cotton so soft and cozy and it shows the freehand Baptist Fan quilting design.
Scrappy Bargello, I used scrappy pinks only.
For a young girl's Quincinera, she was then all about pink so the back is also pink!!

Pieced binding using scraps!
I enjoy pieced backings, they are both practical and interesting.
