The Pink and Brown Quilt is Finished

Can you believe it’s been 3 1/2 months since I last posted? I’ve had knee surgery, 4 weeks of physical therapy, went to Kansas City for a week where I shop hopped so much I had to buy additional luggage to bring it home, installed my design wall in the Quilt Studio, hosted Bunco twice, my office cabinets were installed, made several Halloween projects and quilted Atomic Starburst.  There is a lot to catch up on.

But first, the Pink and Brown quilt is finished!  It all started with this “ugly” pink and brown vintage fabric a friend gave me back in 2007 or 2008.  I spotted a free pattern called Pathways to the Stars in a Windham Fabrics ad and started collecting vintage pink, brown and neutral fabrics. I finished the top back in June 2009.

After the top was made I found the perfect fabric for the backing, which I pieced, matching the pattern so it’s nearly impossible to see the seam.

I used Strawberry Blond Glide Thread and the Baptist Fan E2E.  The batting is Legacy 80/20.

Prior to washing the quilt measured 67.5 x 95.  After washing it measures 64 x 89 1/4″.
