red and pink

My quilt top pile is growing .... must now call a stop to all new ideas until I get on with some quilting !!
This is a quilt chosen by & made for my sister-in-law Adrienne .
She lives a few hours away so we spent a long phone call & simultaneous online fabric browsing on the weekend in an attempt to choose the backing fabric .

Considering her first choice was to be gold & cream silk we have come a long way !
Her exposure to some Kaffe Fassett books did the trick & she claims to love it so far .
By the way have you seen the TV show Kirstie's Homemade Home ??
It shows in Australia at 7.30 Thursdays on cable , I think the series is nearly finished but Kaffe featured in one episode .
Kirstie visited his home ..... fantastic .

Using up a charm pack of Wonderland by MoMo was easy & yet another bag is made .
I am not usually a lover of patchwork bags but this fabric has won me !
