Pastel Series III

I made this quilt for darling daughter after a move and I wanted to decorate her room in pastels. I was sewing a new quilt for her so she was excited. I rag painted the walls either a pink and yellow or a cream and yellow then I cut a wide border stripe fabric and used laundry starch to stick it to the walls and hung an antique pink satin pull curtain on the window. Sadly I do not have a good photo of her room.  The quilt pattern is Candy Stripe by Cleo Snuggerud and was published in the February 1996 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine.  It is just 4 patches with setting triangles and strips of stripes in between.  I made a bed ruffle for her bed from the pink stripe fabric with a battenburg lace on the hem.  I even made a pillowcase to match, the fabric was so soft that it was loved to shreds.  Her best friend moved away when she was in 3rd grade so I made her a quilt just like this for a going away gift.  --Ann--
