Pink isn't one of my
I'm Tickled Pink to use it.
31" x 31"
September's Mini Quilt
You might remember from my last post
the BOM I finished.
Each month I received the fabric in the mail
for another border or for the appliques.
Homestead Hearth was very generous in
the amount of fabric they included.
So I had lots of the pinks leftover
from the appliqued flowers.
Those fabric scraps had sat on my
sewing table for a very long time and
now it was time to use them or loose them!
I wasn't sure what the plan
should be, but then I
remembered some of the fun patterns
I had from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
This is a Carrie Nelson's snippet pattern
The pieces are sewn with a diagonal layout
so it takes up quite a bit of space on my design floor.
The good part is there was very little
of the pink fabrics left!
I machine quilted around each of the X's.
I quilted half of an X and then went on to
the next one. When I got to the end of the
row I turned around and did the other half.
You can see where I travelled
from one X to another.
It's good to keep some things simple
when you life can fill up with
other more complicated things.
I hope you've recently had some
tickled pink moments.
Be sure to take a look at
some of the monthly mini's organized
You might be tickled pink
by what you see!
Until Next Time-
