Doll quilt/art quilt, have you ever had that wonderful feeling that something came out just how you intended it to from idea to the actual piece, I have to say for this little quilt that is what happened for me.  I had this beautiful piece of Kaffe Fassett fabric, the center piece with the vase of flowers, {love this group, came in several color ways} and I thought it reminded me of a painting, so I didn't want to cut it up, I thought I would just "frame it", so I found the sweet polka dot and the silhouette fabrics to coordinate and just added the borders.  I backed it with a solid pink kona and tried a panto quilt design I hadn't used yet and it quilted it with a light pink thread .  I had crocheted this border trim in cotton and was going to use on a pillow case, but I decided I'd try it on this and I really like it, even if I did have to fudge it to make it work. 





Have a great weekend, happy pink saturday.  Blessings, Michelle

I think you just created a piece of art. The fabric is gorgeous, the quilting is beautiful and the colors are perfect.
I also think the crochet work fits like a glove.

Good Morning Michelle Sweetie...
Oh my gosh what a work of art. Michelle my dear you have done it yet again. Another beautiful piece. I just knew this was a pillow, and I find you have it laying there. It is so pretty.

I love the quilting design with the flowers that you chose for quilting your finished project.

Now I love the vase of flowers of course, and that beautiful polka dot trim is exquisite, but I think the contrasting border with the crochet edging is the icing on top. It is so pretty.

I am clapping for you sweet friend. Can you hear me? Please stand up and take a curtsy. Beautiful, beautiful piece.

A sunshine of happiness for sure. Thank you SO much for sharing with me this morning. Hope you have a wonderful weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
