Pink Cabin Quilt Completed!

Here you go. My Pink Cabin Quilt that I put together from my Cottage Quilting Bee blocks.

Pink Cabin Quilt


I LOVE LOVE the back. Why is that that so many times we love the back of the quilts more than the front?

I tried lots of different ways to get good pics of this quilt but the sun is really bright and I don't have the best places for large quilts.

I tried hanging it in the tree outside but the gardeners cut the branches so it wouldn't hang great, needless to say my daughter and the wind did not help any.

Here is a closer look at some of the squares. Thanks to all of my quilting bee friends this quilt is so gorgeous.

It looks good any way you fold it.

all mixed up


I free motioned inside each square for this quilt and it measures 55 x 80, plus this was my first quit that I used cotton batting so far I like it. I am so excited to have my first quilting bee quilt all done! Just 2 more to go.

This quilt is just lovely. The colors are very sweet.

What type of batting do you normally use? I thought I was he only weirdo out there that didn't use cotton batting. I am cheapo and by $5 polyester blankets at Walmart. It takes a few washes to soften, but it works quite well and it doesn't fuzz the sewing machine like the Warm and Natural has.

It's simply beautiful! I love the last photo for some reason - the pink backing looks so scrumptious. :)

You're right - it DOES look great no matter how you fold it or lay it! You did a great job and all your pictures truly do look wonderful! The lighting is perfect and the background is unique and perfect, too! I know you'll enjoy it!
