The Pink!

I had a very early knock on the door and a thump of parcel hitting the doormat this morning which always causes great excitment! It was my swap quilt from the Monochromatic 4 Seasons challenge. I opened the package to find this beauty titled "The Pink" from Marlene, and I was blown away with it! It is just stunning! My colour of choice was pink and my season was Spring. Marlene had even sewn a hanger in the back so I could immediately hang it on some dowel and take these snaps in the backyard. I have to rearrange some wall space to find a spot for it inside, its getting to the too many quilts, not enough walls stage....

I just read on Marlene's blog that the flowers here was a photograph that she printed out onto EQ fabric sheets, its amazing, I wouldn't have realized that at all. Love the quilting detail, its just beautiful.

This bit is my favourite! Little bubbles!! I think I have found the answer to my quilting for the little birds in a tree quilt I was pondering in my last post. I'm going to give this a try.

Thanks again Marlene, it is fantastic! And thanks to Margaret for running the swap too.
