Second Recession Quilt-TA Da!

This is my first finish of the third quarter of FAL with Adrianne ( list here ) It is another charity quilt,  made by the Together circle of do.good stitches. I had 4 blocks left over from the original Recession Quilt and decided to make another similar quilt.

 
Svea had made me a green block whereas the others were all pink. I think I managed to incorporate it successfully into this quilt. For the back I used a piece of Dear Stella camping fabric with a scrap piece of green with white dots, left over from another quilt.

 
 
I quilted it again with flowers like the last one but adding a few daisies ( and one butterfly) this time.
 
 
 
 
I used Kona Pomegranate and Chartreuse for the binding, to pick up the colours in the quilt.
 

 
 
I have already posted it to Siblings Together ( though not heard yet that it has been received) along with 15 other quilts ( 7 of which were donated by members of my LQG).

  3. I'm just catching up on reading blogs! I think I do prefer your stronger coloured recession quilt, but this is very pretty too and I quite like the green :)
