pink and red

Remember this? I finished it a while ago and finally got it in the mail to it's receipent, Sadie, on the occasion of her birth. I am quite happy with the way it turned out. I thought the 2" would make me mental but it was totally fine. I was surprised to discover that I liked the hand quilting more than anything else (cutting out, machine pieceing, hand sewing the binding).

I used only vintage and thrifted fabric, some yardage, some skirts/shirts. It took awhile to amass enough to get started but it was kind of fun as I had no idea what would actually be in the quilt until I found it at the thrift store.

The backing is a cozy flannel with tiny pink hearts. The binding is from a duvet cover of the Ikea persausion, I believe.

I can't wait to start on the next one. I'm thinking a log cabin summer quilt.
