    Here are some pix of the little pink and yellow quilt I made.

    It's going to our county housing authority for a little homeless girl in their program. She said her favorite colors were pink, yellow and orange and she loves flowers.

    It was simple, and such a joy to sew and quilt.

    Simple but beautiful! I love the flower motif you quilted. Did you use a stencil for it?

    No stencil, just freehand. Working out from the spiral at the center, I quilted a 5-petaled flower and then just echoed that 3 more times. I quilted ribbons on the seams between the blocks.

    So pretty for a special little girl. What is the pattern name, where to find?
    Does it use only 5 -6 fabrics?

    So precious. It is always so touching to see the design and workmanship put in to these quilts made for a total stranger. Certainly the caring and love that went in to this piece will transfer to her spirit.

    I used 6 fabrics but you could use 8. Mine was all scrap except the bright pink tonal. I made half the blocks starting with a dark center and half starting with a light center, and then put them together alternating like a checkerboard. It's the only way I could make sure I had enough fabric.

    The pattern is Courthouse Steps. It's a Log Cabin variation.
