winged quilt

It has been a long week. Is it really only Tuesday?  I spent most of the past two days in bed with a migraine and it has been miserable.  Migraines always make me feel like I will never have the energy to do anything ever again. So it's a good thing I finished this one last week, though I took the pictures after my headache started and they are not the best (quilt upside down, windows in the background, etc.), but I wanted to take them before the quilt was gifted.

This quilt uses a few prints from my favorite collection in a while: Winged by Bonnie Christine.  It has all of the pinks and peaches and teals and greens and purples that I am always looking for.  It is really beautiful.  I mixed it with some other prints in my stash to make it a little scrappy and crazy.

The backing is my favorite print from the collection.  I am normally not a fan of green but apparently I like this green.  The binding is a Cotton + Steel print.

This quilt is going to a soon-to-be-born baby girl of one of my husband's friends from work.  

Finished size: 40" x 50"

You can find Winged online at . . .

  6. Oops, that last comment didn't make sense. What I MEANT to say was that it's amazing what that little bit of black does for the quilt. I love it, and I love your eye for color.
