Default Shabby Chic Rag Quilt

Yesteday I posted one block from the shabby chic rag quilt I made for my GD and someone said they had seen one so I am posting several images of that quilt. What makes it shabby chic are the fabrics.
I hope this gives you some idea of what it looks like. I crocheted some rosette like little doilies and attach them to some of the blocks. Only a few, but it gave it sort of an antique look. I used pink flannel for the batting so it tied all the blocks and pastel colors together. I did not use the fabrics in the last photo they did not go with the rest of the fabrics. I do not know how to delete the photo, sorry.

Thank for posting the pix of the whole quilt. Its beautiful! Do you mean you used solid pink flannel for the back of all the blocks? Did you use flannel or batting inside? What size blocks did you use? I just adore your quilt! Thanks again for sharing.

that is so nice, it reminds me of the chenille bedspreads we had when I was a kid.
