A focus!

Good afternoon to all!  I have been working on my Farmhouse Sampler quilt.  I looked and looked and looked at all my fabric, trying to pick a border.  At last, pink rules!!  This is a Tricia Cribb fabric, for Turning Twenty Quilts...Northcott fabric.  So hurrah!  A flimsy is born!  
I have been working on my rainbow quilts...blue for this month!  Here is my blue heart block for this month.
This is my blue wonky star scrap block for this month!
A little applique was accomplished, too.   I love these tiny blocks!!!  Great fun!

 And I may have crocheted an afghan, too.  In about 20 minute increments, each night,  I finished up this one.  So it is warm and toasty, for cool nights.



Have a great day, each of you!

The pink was a great choice for the border! It makes the blocks “pop.”

I love that farmhouse sampler, the pink is perfect for this quilt, it brings the pink flower(s) in the blocks into focus.

Love the pink border! Is there fabric between the crochet sections? I am making the Woolen Willow blocks as well. I am doing wool on cotton. Being a rug hooker, I have plenty of wool. Have a great week.

Pink is the winner! And then switching over to your wonky blue block. Another winner

The pink border is the perfect compliment to those lovely blocks--and it is your favorite color, so it is perfect that way, too. :)
Your blue blocks look great. How small are those little blocks? They look fun.
And an afghan?? I'm impressed.

I admit that I never think of pink but it's absolutely perfect for your sampler. Also love the crochet blanket. I didn't know that you did that also!

Your fingers are always busy creating! Love the pink border. I made a couple of Turning Twenty quilts way back when--my Dad wore his to shreds.
Happy stitching hours to you!
