My oldest daughter, Miss K, was going through my scraps the other day and mysteriously ended up with a giant pile of pinks and reds. She must have Valentine’s Day on the brain!!
I thought it would be fun to put together a little string quilt to utilize these little bits of goodness. I do have an insanely large amount of pink scraps, it’s time I start making room for more.
The red scraps were a bit harder to find but we managed to muster a few.
I have a few other projects that really need to come first, but this one was so fun and easy to work on, before I knew it I ended up with about half of a baby size quilt.
Maybe one of the two lovely mammas I know who are pregnant right now will have a baby girl.
This won’t be finished by V-Day but I could probably pull it off by their summer due dates!
My other litle purely indulgent project is my Echino Punch Log Cabin Quilt that is coming along very slowly!!
I think I’ve decided to randomly place the blocks in a “sea” of Kona pale flesh and bone, to make for another very ”improv-y”mixture of color and piecing.
Not entirely sure about this one, but I’m just going to go for it and see what comes of it. FYI- Colors are REALLY off in this last photo, I promise it’s actually prettier in person) :-)!!!
I’m linking these little WIP’s up to Lee at Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesdays. Go on over and have a peek at all the other fun projects happening around bloggy land.
