This is Sheila's Ricky Tims hand-dyed Snowball quilt.  The other day I shared Karen's Pink Kisses quilt and raved about how many pinks there are in the world.  On this quilt Sheila has used a saturated bright pink with great effect as one of the borders, pulling out the various deep shades and tones of pink that flow throughout her quilt.  Any more bright pink and I think it would have over-shadowed the lovely hand-dyed fabrics which have a soft, natural vibe to them, but without it the quilt would not be quite the same. I think she got it just right.

For the allover digital pattern, Sheila chose 'Popcorn' by Willow Leaf Studio. It never disappoints.
