Pink Squares Finished!

Wow, that is a lot!!! Well done to everyone involved, a great effort. Congratulations go to Cristina who won my quilt with her generous bid of $200!! I'm designing a label for Cristina now and then hopefully it will be in the mail to her by the weekend.

Also in the mail tomorrow is this quilt to Corrie for her collection of quilts.

Pebble quilting all finished, binding sewn down.

Label on. I put my email address on it as I don't know who is going to get this quilt so it would be nice to think that one day, maybe, to get an email saying hi, I got your quilt. I loved the binding for this one. There was no red in the pink squares, but somehow it just went!

Bit of pebble quilting close up.

And just from another angle. The vine on the right is that one with the purple flowers, it is a weed I know, but I love how it crawls along the back fence. We are hopeless gardeners Daz and I but up here everything is so lush and green. Anyway, I hope whoever ends up with this quilt likes it as much as I do.

Helen that is a great result, both the bided quilt and the other for Corrie. I love your colours and agree with the red binding it is perfect. I must admit that is something I love to do-find the correct binding and it is the one place where I can be very daring...

How did you make those lovely lables, they are great.
