A pink and brown quilt top has been born!

Wow! What a joyous ride this quilt has been. It literally flew from my fingers. It did not ever feel like work.
Granted mine is only 54" square and the one Bonnie Hunter showed was mammoth!
 But...I have enough blocks to make another one!

Then border decisions needed to be made. Hubby and I decided on the lighter pink. The one on the right. I may use the rose colored one as the backing.

On the Hexie front I have made all the batik flowers I had cut out. What is on the wall is only 3/4 of them. I am now making the little 3 piece unit between each rosette. I am using a Kona fabric called Ash. It is a nice clean gray and will not compete with the batiks for glory. So I am back to basting and basting and basting.

As soon as I seen this quilt I thought "Chocolate covered cherries" You quilt looks YUMMY! Agreeing with your border choice.

I like pink and brown quilts and this one is no exception. Such a rich and warm looking brown.
