Pretty in Pink

One of the VERY simplest quilts to put together
is a quilt with strips.
These strips are cut 3" wide.
Sewn together in pairs and triplets...
and cut 10" wide.
Three rows of strips.
Two borders. (one 2 1/2" and one 6")
and folks...
You have a quilt!!!
(singing the hokey pokey as I write that!) 

Believe it or NOT...
I was able to sew this up in ONE afternoon.
I DID have most of the fabric PULLED.
THAT is what sometimes takes ALL the time!!

If I hand quilt with some black thread....
like I'd LIKE...
The HOURS will add up!!!
Just HOW much to hand quilt is the question...
and WHERE???
I don't have the time to hand quilt it all.
Wish I did.
This "black and white with pink ALL OVER" quilt
is ALL stash.
I'm hoping that 2014 will be another
PURCHASE FREE year for me!
That's the goal.


  1. Hi!!!!! It is very pretty!!!!! Black hand quilting would be pretty!!!! Beautiful way to use stash!!!!!

  2. Sweet !
    I often spend way too much time selecting fabrics - been trying to put a bit less thought into it lately!

  3. Nice job on your little quilt! Great pattern to use up small scraps:)

  4. Lovely quilt. Made just the way I like to do it too. The finished result is a surprise to everyone, including me.
    I have a quilt I want to hand quilt in blue, but like you I don't really have the time.

  5. Another beauty! I think it's too sweet for black quilting...
