Pink Box Quilt

So I finally got to see it. My small quilt group joined in the challenge at our local quilting guild. We got a box of fabrics, and had to make a twin sized quilt with what was inside. Holly and Cheri had this fabulous floral pattern all picked out, but when they opened the box, it was race cars and rainbows! They had to do a quick change to the pattern, and here is what we ended up with:
Challenge Box Quilt
I think it turned out so well. I love it. And I think the quilt recipient will love it too. The blocks I did are in the lower left hand corner. Cheri and Holly really did a lot of work on the border and the quilting. See that black checkered inner border? That's pieced. 1 inch squares! AMAZING.

There was vote to see which quilt was everyone's favorite. We didn't win the prize, but really, I think we did the best job incorporating all the fabrics into one cohesive quilt. The winning quilt had what I will call "easy" fabrics, gorgeous greens and purples (and florals!) but it was really a beautiful quilt as well. And if I didn't make this quilt I'd probably vote for the pretty one too!! :)

Wow! What a fabulous looking quilt! You guys did a fantastic job incorporating in all those fabrics. I always have the hardest time matching up fabrics from different lines into one quilt.

It looks great! I can't believe that checker board border is pieced together. Wow, wow, wow!

The recipient is very lucky indeed.

The quilt is lovely - your group truly did a great job of incorporating many colors in a cohesive way. And the checkerboard border is amazing.
