Another group effort…

I wanted to share another one of Portland Modern Quilt Guild’s charity quilts… the blocks for this quilt were made in October 2014 and we now have a beautiful finished quilt….

pink cross quilt

I love the wonky cross block for group sewing because it is so easy to make… with lots of wiggly room and creative options for any miss-sizing issues.

I love the pink and brown colour combination… the brown tones down the pink so the finished quilt does not feel to bubblegum or over girlie…

When we were putting the quilt top together we also used some solid squares of fabric to give the eye somewhere to rest…

…which also gave our fabulous quilter, Coleen Bernhardt from the Quilted Thistle, room to play.

And Coleen really had fun and the back of the quilt shows just how much variety she put into the blocks…

For the back of the quilt I pieced together a collection of brown and pink scraps…

Add some binding and you have another wonderful quilt ready to give some comfort.
