It's a late night edition of T.G.I.F.F. tonight! I finished my gorgeous little Pink Posy quilt yesterday and I am hopelessly in love with it! This darling little quilt will be up for sale at The Handmade Library's Pretty in Pink Showcase on 11th of September. I'm feeling incredibly efficient having it finished now!
Isn't she lovely? As I mentioned previously, I have never used this much pink in a quilt before, but am thoroughly pleased with the end result! I basically went through my stash, after adding another half a dozen pink prints from a quick trip to Spotlight, and pulled out every single pink fabric I could find! From each print, I cut 4.5" squares. There are a few duplicates in there, but overall, there are 57 (if i counted correctly!) different pink prints here. The white fabric is a Kona charm pack I bought ages ago, trimmed down.
I stuck with a really simple quilting design. Lots of straight lines on the diagonals, and then around the border, I got my free motion on! Gorgeous little flowers and meandering paths between them. All the piecing and quilting has been done in a very pretty baby pink Gutermann thread. I have almost completely run out of Aurifil and am waiting on my friends (YOU know who you are lol) to decide which ones they would like before I put my next bulk order in - so the Gutermann was called upon! What I like about piecing with the pink, is that on the fabrics with a white background or just plain white, the pink almost shimmers through. It's a lovely effect, and totally unplanned!
I managed to fussy cut quite a few of them, which almost makes it like a little "I spy" quilt!
Pretty little pinwheels in the corners, that unfortunately lost some of their points in the process!
And one of the prettiest views of a quilt - all rolled up and yummy.
I'm linking up with T.G.I.F.F. being hosted over at Bedtime Quilting this week - You can too!
