roses and gingham quilt

Hi everyone - Hope y'all are having a good Sunday so far. I am cooking beef and broccoli stir fry for lunch. I thought I'd take a minute to post about the quilt I just finished while the food is simmering. (My computer is in my kitchen)

I just finished a new quilt yesterday for a friend who's daughter is going on a ministry trip. Her team is doing an auction to raise money for the trip and my friend asked if I'd be willing to make something to be auctioned off. I came up with this baby quilt. I hope it brings in a good amount for the trip!

I used all vintage bed linens for the patchwork quilt top and appliqued a little bird in some pink corduroy in the top corner. The back is a new pre-quilted fabric that I love to use sometimes on baby quilts. I also quilted a few squares throughout the quilt - just simple square stitching, but I like the effect it gives.

Enjoy the pictures!
