IN the Pink!!

 Well, It is back to work for me!  I did laundry, cleaned all the bathrooms, helped mow the lawn, swept and mopped, vacuumed...and still have to dust.  But in between all that, I played in the pinks!  I had,  some years ago, cut a strip from all my pink fabrics ( I did all my reds, too), and today?  This little quilt came into being!  The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple blossom pattern, on the Quiltville website.  I like this pattern so much!
My favorite thing about this pattern?  You get a whole bunch of bonus half square triangles!!  Whoop!!!  Now these, I have a plan for...they will be the border of this quilt. So, I am not adding to my pile of hoarded half squares...



Hope y'all have a wonderful day!

Julie

Pink is sooo not my color, but that IS adorable. I have made that pattern a couple times, but I've always put the sashing in with the light cornerstone. Love it!

Wow that is such a cute quilt, I love just the two colours, you can really focus on the pattern. How big is your "little" quilt? It looks lap size from the picture?

I don't know that I would ever make an all-pink quilt myself, but I have to say that sure is a gorgeous quilt! And the pattern ... well, let's just say I'll be heading to quiltville.com to get the instructions. I see one (probably not in pink - ha!) in my future!

Ohh I love this! It reminds me that I have some brown and pink pineapple blocks I need to sew together! ;) My DD is crazy for pink and I started it for her, but then we moved and oops~ I have a ufo! :-o Have a great evening!!

It's beautiful Julie! I've made one myself, and did use the extra triangles in the borders. Bonnie ROCKS! *hugs*

It's a beauty. Try just a touch of milk chocolate brown with it to make it pop even more.

Great looking quilt. If is amazing what can happen when you toss together all your scraps in one color.

I'm not much of a pink girl, either, but I do love this quilt. Whenever someone posts this quilt I remember how much I want to make it! : )

Karen said...

My daughter would love this quilt as pink and blue are her favorite colors. I don't know which one she likes best. I seldom make quilts in those color combo.

How pretty and how nice to have those strips cut (awhile back) and sitting and waiting for you to come play with them!
