Pretty in Pink - progress



I finished the pink baby quilt top - thank you all commenters for your good advice! I put the squares on edge and added white sashing and I'm very happy with the result. Of course there were few glitches and a lot of ripping, and since my math was never good, the side triangles are too small... I didn't realize you have to cut them a 1/2 inch larger. Well, I call it tuition. You learn from experience.


I love working with the pink fabrics I've been keeping for so long. I especially like the stripes and plaids, but also the small flowers. These fabrics are a tribute to my dear little sister who taught me to love fabrics and all things beautiful.



It's quite a small quilt, 34.5x34.5 inch. Working on a small piece is a pleasure. Much easier, with immediate results.

Off to backing, basting and quilting.

  11. I definitely like the squares being set on point. It adds a good element of interest without interfering with the fabric selection/combination.
