    Happy pink & green quilt top

    I've had this fabric awhile (after I finished the top I found a receipt from 2008) and I finally picked a pattern and just used it all up. The piano key border is made from the leftover strips.

    I ran across a photo of a quilt on a blog that I really liked and googled it to see if I could find a pattern. It turns out that the quilt was created to showcase a fabric line using a charm pack and jelly roll. The fabric I wanted to use was half yard pieces and it turned out to be the perfect amount of fabric. I had everything in my stash except the lt green border. Here's the video if anyone is interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rdX1Gr9esI

    I had a hair appointment Saturday and took the top to show the ladies and one of them wants to buy it. I haven't given her a price because I didn't know how to price it. I looked on etsy and quite a few of the twin size were in the $300 range although mine is a little larger than most of them that I looked at (mine is 74x84). So I'll probably price it around $325 - $350. I'm sure the LA quilter will charge $100 +/- to quilt it.

    That is lovely and even better that you were able to use up what you had on hand. Well done.

    Great quilt. I actually looked at the youtube video, went to the Missouri Quilt Co. site and ordered the materials to make this quilt. Thanks, I think ;-)

    I've always liked the pink/green combo. Your fabrics are so pretty. It's no surprise someone wants to buy it.

    Love your color choices and the pattern too. Thanks for the link to the video!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Beautiful fabric...love the pattern too. Doesn't surprise me you have an offer to purchase and it's not even quilted yet.
