September 's Monthly Mini

 Pink isn't one of my
favorite colors, 
but  occasionally, 
I'm Tickled Pink to use it.

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
called X-Rated.
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-


  1. Love the play on words and you certainly do have a sweet little quilt.

  2. I love it--a perfect valentine quilt of sorts. Great way to use the scraps.

  3. How adorable and resourceful! A beautiful mini and a scrap pile clean up - win, win! I love it. Will link it up on Wednesday. Thanks for another great mini!

  4. I'm not a pink person either but I love this quilt. Cute label. Hugs

  5. I’m tickled pink to see your pretty pink scrappy quilt made from leftovers! I’m glad you used them and did not loose them 😉.

  6. I love pink so I think this little quilt is delightful! Such pretty pinks too! You’re ready for Valentines’ day :0)

  7. I agree, a little pink can go a long way, but you made excellent use of those scraps, Kyle. Really cute, and I like the simple quilting.

  8. Super sweet mini! Perfect for a Valentine's day table topper or a little girl's birthday party.

  9. Very cute, will be good for Valentine's Day and you are ready so far in advance, lol!

  10. Pink isn't a color I gravitate to, but this really tickled me! Very sweet, Kyle.
    I agree that we need to just keep some things simple!

  11. Just lovely!! I'm amazed at how you manage to come up with such great ideas every month - I've never seen a dud :) !!

  12. I ~do~ love pink and I'm tickled with yours! Great scrap-busting project!

  13. Pink is my favorite color for my everyday house; I have pink roses and quilts everywhere. I think your quilt is adorable, and the way you quilted saved lots of tying off, didn't it? Looks great to me. ---"Love"

  14. A few years ago, I have bought a BOM with Homestead and I've made 3 little quilts with the rest of my fabrics !
    Yes, they are very very generous !! :))
    Love your pink doll quilt !! It sparkles !

  15. I love the amount of fabric that are always in a kit when I buy it in America. When I buy a kit in Holland and I make one mistake I have a problem because there is no extra fabric.......
    Your mini is sweet.

  16. I adore pink! It always makes me smile and is such a sweet color.
    I love the design of your little quilt. The pieced border is simple but perfection
    The machine quilting is just right.
    This will be sweet for valentines day or any day.

  17. What a great way to use the extra pinks! I love pink and your little quilt is so great. The variety just makes it!

  18. It is a gorgeous mini. Lovely to have enough left over to be able to use in this quilt, too.

  19. I want to sleep under that quilt on the bed when I come to visit!
    Pretty pinks in your mini. I have been purchasing pink fabrics galore of late.

  20. Kyle ternura es lo que veo en tu mini de septiembre.
    Tu cama es elegante espectacular tu edredón

  21. What a perfect little quilt to use up your leftover pinks. And I love the way you quilted it. Not to mention the cute label, too! So sweet!

  22. I love the backing fabric on your "tickled pink"quilt. Could you tell me what it is?

  23. That would be such a pretty pattern and fabric for a baby girl.
    Then there is your appliqued quilt . . . WOW Outstanding!
    Sew sweet :)
