    Pink & Brown Sampler....by Charisma

    Hi everyone!
    I wanted to share this quilt because some of you helped me make it.

    A few years ago ( no judging how long I have been sitting on these blocks..lol) I was part of the Chocolate Raspberry block exchange...at the same time I was also part of the monthly Bee swap and my colors were pink and brown. I had Tons of blocks...that were in the pink & brown color way. I also had several of my own that I didn't think were good enough to trade...so I kept them.....I have already made a really large quilt from all of these blocks and I still had 26 left. I used 25 of them in this queen size quilt. I only have one block left! YAY! It feels good to whittle down all of these UFO's.

    At my church there is a woman who donates so much time..she is sweet and loving and such a gentle spirit. I wanted to bless her. Her favorite color is pink. I thought this would be a great time to get out these blocks and make a quilt. I quilted it with a loose Charisma Curl design and framed it all in with a feather. I didn't need to go super detailed...and I wanted it to be feminine and traditional. It's a good mix.

    So I hope you all have a good day! Thanks for helping me bless someone special!

    Chrarismah, I do believe that you could make an old dishrag look good with your wonderful quilting. It is so beautiful & the lady at church will be blessed to be gifted with such a gorgeous quilt. You have a generous heart.
