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")
 
Put it ALL TOGETHER..
and folks...
You have a quilt!!!
(singing the hokey pokey as I write that!) 
LOL!

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.

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

  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.
