It is the last weekend for the Color Pink (Rainbow Scrap Challenge). Using up most of the 1 1/2" and 2" strips for this quilt, the scraps have been greatly diminished. I have been testing border fabrics and have narrowed down to a couple of ideas. I will probably sleep on it and decide tomorrow. I had not intended on making this top very big, but it may finish at 70 x 70 after the borders are added.
Thank goodness Angela (So Scrappy) picked the color Pink for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I have a deadline for mid February to deliver the above Pink Quilt for the "Ladies Night Out" Breast Cancer Awareness Fund Raiser. I was able to use up pre-cut 5 1/2" strips cut from fabric left over from other quilts made. The borders are cut and ready to add on -- I am anxious to see how this one finishes up. I will be using a soft pink Glide Quilting Thread -- which has such a pretty pearl sheen.
I still had 2 1/2" strips and 4 1/2" strips not touched yet, so I made a few HSTs and 4-patches for the Rainbow Quilt at the end of the year. Because of the cancer fund raisers, I have accumulated an obscene amount of pink fabric -- along with an overflowing amount of pink scraps.
I am also joining Sarah with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for her Whoop Linky, who just happened to make an orange quilt from my pattern (Blue Me Away). I have also made this pattern in purple, blue and PINK (seen here)!
