Actually, Valentine's Day is represented by a lot of different colors now. At the store we have fabric that is red
, white, pink
, black, purple
... So I decided I would just use pink
to represent the month of February. I am not really much of a pink
girl. But I thought I would share a few quilts that I have that are primarily that color.
This week I have been doing quite a bit of sewing and have completed a top. It is with the Rouenneries fabric that I have been working on.
It's not a great photo and once it is quilted it will look so much better. But I have to save up to have that done. The fabrics are red, pink taupe, and greenish gray. It is a pattern by Carrie Nelson, Miss Rosie's quilts.http://www.missrosiesquiltco.com
I think it will look great in my guest bedroom.
A couple of other quilts that are pink
Hearts and Arrows - 2001
Can you find my deliberate mistake?
It was fun to use lots of the double pink reproduction fabrics I had collected over the years.
The next two pink quilt tops are vintage ones.
This is a simple double nine patch. Most of the pink color comes from the sashing which is pink and the border. The little blocks are made from early 19th century fabrics.
I would guess that the blocks were made first and were set together at a later time. The pink
sashing doesn't look quite as old as the blocks, but old nonetheless.
But the little 3 inch blocks are a treasure of fabrics samples from that time period.
The second vintage pink quilt top is a composed of blocks called Union Square.
I love the sawtooth border and the simplicity of a two color quilt. The quilt is probably about 100 years old.
Don't you love the mistake here
Enjoy the month of hearts, roses, valentines and pink quilts.
Until Next Time-Kyle
