Empty Design Wall

This afternoon I put the finishing stitches on the
Wedding Quilt
I'm making for my god daughter.
I can't wait to show it on my blog,
but she reads it, so it will have to wait.

Since my design wall was empty,
I put these 5" squares of 
vintage chenille I purchased at the 
Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show on it.

The vendor who was selling these had some
beautiful quilts and tops made from
vintage chenille, doilies and embroidered table scarves, etc.
She also had precut 5" and 6" squares.

I bought two packs of the pinks and white.


There is a nice variety of the chenilles in each pack.
 

The true colors of the squares is somewhere in between these two photos.
The squares that look brown are more of a pinky peach color.
 

This will make such a feminine little baby quilt.
Now to get the squares all sewn together!

Happy Quilting!

Will make a cute, comfy quilt, but get ready to mop up a lot of lint!

Those are lovely. I'll bet that quilt will feel heavenly too.

Oh my...does this bring back memories of childhood...both of chenille bedspreads but those wonderful robes of the 50's and earlier! It's like antique "minkee"! These will make a lovely baby quilt. You are so full of great ideas!

What a special little quilt! I love the contrasts of texture and pops of color. It will also be soft and WARM. I love the chenille I have for a lap quilt on my couch! Have fun on your next project
