"Wink Wink" -- It's Pink!



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)

Wow! What an amazing month. Not many people can manage to squeeze two entire quilts into a single month. Can't wait to see what you have in store for next month.

They're both absolutely gorgeous, Jamie! I'd have a hard time picking between the two of them....

So you're the one responsible for the pattern of the orange quilt. Girl...that is one amazing quilt! And it's not the easiest to design a quilt on point, so I applaud you!
