    If you like soft colors, this one is for you...hot off the machine

    I was given the beautiful floral fabric (left overs from making scrubs). I did not want to cut it up into small pieces, but could not go larger that 6.5 inches for the center sq. Sashing/cornerstone were cut at 2.5 inches, the first border is 2.5 inches, the second border is 4 inches and the outside border is 2.5 inches. The quilt is 83 inches sq.

    I like the softness of it very much. It has not even been pressed yet...I literally just took it off the machine to show you, so please excuse the wrinkles...

    I like it - there is plenty of contrast in the colors you used - and the colors are lovely

    That is pretty. I think it would look very good in a shabby chic type bedroom.
