Pinkilicious - A Sunday Morning Quilt, But It's Saturday


Hi Peeps!

Welcome to June! Halfway through the year already?!

I went to drop a quilt to my lovely friend Sandra and look what she had just pulled off the frame!!

It's my Pinkilicious Quilt from the Fabulous book Sunday Morning Quilts!!


I just love it....I know I always say that about every single quilt when it comes back quilted LOL
Plus my scrap box of pink's and low volumes is pretty much empty??....now to find a pattern for the blue scrap box!!


What I think I love most about these scrap quilts, that like my Vintage 9 Patch, is revisiting some of my favourite fabrics that show up again as little strips or pieces.


Quite often this sends me off on a frantic internet search for some favourite fabric...sometimes successfully but more often not... thank goodness, or the fabric stash would never get smaller!!!


I backed it with a vintage sheet in the perfect complimentary pinks, with a touch of mauve, and although difficult to photograph it shows up the floral and swirly pantograph beautifully.


I wish I'd used a little more of the silver/metallic Jennifer Sampou fabric as a highlight as it provides a fantastic subtle pop........


I've glue basted the binding down and had grand ideas of hand stitching it over the long weekend....but I doubt that will happen and I will end up machine stitching it LOL


Have a fabulous weekend Peeps xx

Linking up with Amanda and Myra

  6. I love this. Pink is a fabulous colour, and it shows what an amazing fabric stash you have or have had, if these are the scrap bits left over.
