Process Pledge (where I explain it), but I think this is excusable this one time. Or at least I hope, please process pledge watchers don't prosecute me! I have to throw caution to the wind here, though, because this quilt came out so adorable!
The mom that I made this for had picked the colors pink, purple and apple green for their theme, so with this in mind I took a trip to the fabric store (for this particular one I went to Hancock fabrics). The full pink squares are silk, but the rest are a regular cotton blend. I cut them into 6x6 squares
For the border, I went with a dark purple for a couple of reasons:
- The lady at the fabric store that commented on how pretty the quilt was looking (because I took it with me, to Joann's this time, to find something that matched) suggested a deep purple color. Her reason soon became my reason..
- the purple candles on the embroidered image matched it, and
- the purple looked really good against the green and pink
I forgot to mention the cute, simple fabric that I found for the back. It was super soft and I thought it went perfectly with the other side of the quilt.
