I finished the top!

I finished the top for my neighbor's baby shower next Sunday. I had a layer cake in browns and pinks (just happens to be the colors in the nursery) and did the quick HSTs, put together a Depression Block top, small brown border, the wider outer border. I had hoped to have enough to use the brown for the binding, but I don't. I do have lots of the floral outer border (which will also be the backing), so that will do. The pink is more of a dusty color than it looks.

Now to get it loaded in the frame tomorrow and hopefully quilted.

Really fantastic Beverly! I love th Depression blocks in the middle then the floral outer border. Great when you can make something perfect from what you have on hand. Well done!

This quilt is really wonderful, and isn't it nice to use what fabric you have on hand. I understand that brown and pink is very 'in' at this time. Nice pattern choice, I am sure it will be much loved by both Mom and --- baby!

Very nice! I'm not a pink person, so I like pink paired with brown. Great gift. Love the floral - it will be pretty as the binding and back.

Great quilt. If I ever get pregnant, I'll call you right away.

I love that depression block and this is a perfect example of it. It's just beautiful!

Using a layer cake, I'm guessing that you cut them in quarters and each HST comes out just over 4". Is that right? I've got to do this block sometime!

Thanks everyone, I do love using up my stash. Linda, if you get pregnant, I will actually purchase fabric for your quilt.

Great job. Love the pattern, one of my favorites. The colors work very well together and a plus when you have them in your stash. Brown is a good "mixer". Your neighbor will be thrilled.
