I tried very hard to match Bonnie's color choices. Alas, I do not have Double Pinks in my stash. I did find a small piece of light pink gingham. I used that for the first sash. Then from the almost avalance of containers I picked the second sashing. The darker first border was an internet purchase I made years ago and was totally dissapointed with the fabric. But it has now made it into several of my quilts. I guess it was a wise purchase after all.
The final border was a nice piece of a teadye beige. It really calms down the interior. And DH likes it too.
Love, love, love this pattern by Bonnie Hunter. It is in her newest book called Aventures with Leaders & Enders. You can find it/her at http://www.quilteville.com/
Here it is. All done and now I can start to piece on something else without the guilt trip I was taking myself down. It measures roughly 62" square. Not nearly as big as Our Bonnie's quilt in the book. But satifying to me.
Yesterday I started on two other quilts from her book using the 1 1 /2" squares. I only sewed a short time but toally enjoyed the experience.
