We were visiting friends and family in June. So, I made a few quilts to take as presents.
This is one of them. It is for my mother-in-law whose favorite color is pink.



The pattern is Floral trellis from Fons and Porter's "Our best seasonal quilts" book.



As my sewing machine doesn't have a walking foot and as I was running out of time too, I hand quilted it lightly with Perle 8 cotton in the filler blocks.
I was hoping to do a bit more quilting while I was at my in-laws place, but couldn't get away from all the fun that's happening around.
Hope it withstands all the washings  Cheesy
 


The fabrics are from Joann's except the backing which is 'Bloom' fabric by Laurie Bird.

Thanks for looking Smiley

WOW!!!  Shocked I really LOVE this quilt!! BTW your photography is awesome too!!
Your fabric choices really made the design pop! The pink is spectacular.
The fabric you picked for the flowers really gives them a lot of texture.
I totally want this!!

Fantastic job!! Cheesy

Thank you so much for sharing!!

oh this is really cool!  I was like, "big whoop, she sewed two pieces of fabric together.  Oh wait.  That's pieced. Holy crap cool!"

Smiley  Love the colors you chose (big fan of pink).  Good work!

I didn't realize this was pieced at first either, but holy cow, it's gorgeous!
