OK, I lied, it's a nothing but pink!!! I made this Rail Fence quilt thinking it would be a quick and easy way to thin out my pink fabric stash, but it didn't even make a dent!!! So look for many more pink quilts to come!!! The woman that quilted this for me did an amazing job. You can't really tell in the pictures, but the border fabric is a feather print, so she did loads of feathers in the body, and a feather border. Let me know what you think!!

I love the shades of pink you used in the quilt, and you're right - the feather quilting is just amazing!  Smiley  Great quilt!

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

Was it done with a quilting machine? I can't imagine hand sewing all of that! It's simply stunning!

Yes, I take my quilts to a woman who has a long arm quilting machine. I just don't have the patience to quilt them myself! She does really wonderful work.

Ms. Boleyn, this is an exquisite thing you have posted. I think that by using the colours you've chosen and this particular pattern, you've successfully fused tradition with modernity. This work is an inspiration! (Nice kitty hanging out on the side, too!)

Yes, quite nice!

And ...

(Nice kitty hanging out on the side, too!)

I had to laugh. All my quilt pictures have cats in them, too. They just can't stand having something on the floor that they haven't sniffed, walked around, and sat on. So far, it hasn't been a problem, but if I ever make a quilt for someone who's allergic to cats, they'll be totally screwed.

Wonderful job!  I love the quilting and if I knew of someone in my area who did quilting like that I may just take my current project to them.  It's supposed to have the feather pattern done on it and I'm still trying to figure out how to do it evenly on my home machine  Smiley
