Erin chose pink and blue prints along with some batik fabrics for her quilt. There are a variety of light and medium and dark fabrics. She did not put lattice in between the blocks, which gives her quilt a modern look.
Erin requested over all quilting and she wanted a a bright pink thread used for the quilting. I got out some of the pinks and reds just to see which one would be best.
I like to start with several and then narrow it down. I moved them over to another quilt block to see what they look like on each color.
This one is the best!
and it looks the best here too! The color is New Raspberry.
Started quilting --- Love the New Raspberry for the quilting thread! Looks great on the pink batik and perfect on the lighter prints too.
The Paisley Swirl Quilting flows through the blocks, thus softening the straight lines of the blocks.
I love the combining of the batiks with the prints! Really makes the blocks pop!
