Finally, this is finished. Well, it needs a label but my friend is making one for me, I just have to get her the information.
This quilt is for my bed and here are the particulars.
Bonnie Hunter pattern, Pineapple Blossoms Bonnie is the ultimate scrap quilter, but I tend to be more controlled with my fabric choices.
Blocks constructed using her method of making the corners results in "bonus blocks" You get 5 from each block so this quilt generates 550 1/2 sq triangles.
This quilt finished at 90 x 100 For batting I used a layer of Warm & Natural AND a layer of Hobbs Wool.
**UPDATE** I used two batts, W & N on the bottom for the density and weight, it's a flat batt, and wool on top for the warmth and loft. I like heavy blankets on me in the wintertime. **
Thread used was King Tut hombre reds on top and Signature Cotton in Holiday Red for the back.
A scrappy binding finished it off.
I'm calling this my LOVE quilt. I love red and whites, I used a triple heart motif on the quilting,
it's the first quilt I've made specifically for my own bed, and I absolutely fell in love with all the Red & White two color quilts while in NYC this spring.
What's your favorite color combination?
