The Pink Quilt

The pink quilt was finished and mailed to my friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

I think it turned out so pretty.  I used Hobbs Heirloom batting and every time I finish a quilt with that batting, I love how it feels.  I use a lot of Warm & Natural too but until I’ve washed quilts with W&N, I find they’re kinda stiff but I love them once they’re washed.

For the backing, I used a very light fabric with a pink feathery drawing all over it.

    Oh, Judy! That did turn out wonderful! It’s gorgeous and could not be more perfect! I’m so excited for your friend to get it – she will treasure it! Sending prayers that all goes well for her. She is truly blessed to have such a thoughtful friend.

    It sooo pretty….everything you want to reflect your love and caring. Once again I see the amazing panto that seems to work with all quilts! Was the Hobbs Heirloom 100% cotton or the blend? Thank you for sharing, you are an inspiration.

    Judy, it’s beautiful — your friend will be tickled ‘pink’ with it and I am sure she will take great comfort from being cuddled up within it. 🙂

    It’s so gorgeous! She is going to love it. You are so sweet to make her that quilt. My DH has an aunt that has brain cancer and I want to make her a quilt but DH says that she may not make it long enough for her to enjoy it. I just had back surgery so it would take me double time to make it. I’m debating on do I begin and try to get it done in time or not? They gave her 4 months.

    Oh Judy, I just found your blog and, then I found my quilt. To all those who posted, it was a joy to open. It is more beautiful than the picture reveals. I can’t stop admiring it. It is and will always be treasured. Thank you, my friend.
