"Frosted" and Colorful like Easter Eggs!!!





Here are a few pictures of some Spring time color! When I opened the box to see this quilt I instantly thought Easter Eggs! Afterall, it is that time of year!





This was quilted with an edge-to-edge design called Special Roses. I'm sharing a variety of pictures just so you could see the batiks better and also to show the gray thread I used. The gray worked out wonderfully on all the colors.





This quilt was made for a fundraising charity event by Rachel. I don't know if she blogs.
