Pretty and PINK


it's been another phenomenally cold week here (how could it possibly get any colder?!) and I've had a few evenings in the sewing room to make some progress on my pink scraps. shown above are the rectangle and squares that I'm making from my pinks. I have a general idea of the direction I'd like to go with this quilt, but I'm going to remain flexible.



even though these S4P are SO TEDIOUS, I love how they turn out. it makes it worth it when I see how cute they are. I've not been making as many of these- just picking out my favorite scraps in the color of the month.


here are the rest of the blue S4P from last month- never got them done... for the S4P I'm picking whites as the other color. I want this quilt to finish crisp and bright when it's done.


even though I feel as if I'm sewing like a crazy maniac, the 3" squares in the suitcase are not getting any fewer. (as a matter of fact, I think there might be slightly more in there then when I started all over in January!) so I decided to start making some 16 patch blocks. i'll use a tan/cream for the alternate block, instead of the white like in the S4P. above there are 2 pink 16 patches, and 2 slate blue 16 patches. (don't believe the camera when it wants to tell your eyes that you're seeing purple!)


these two quilts were made for our church sewing group, Scraps to Wraps (S2W). they'll be for a (yet to be born) baby. they were quick and fun to make- and personally, I'm rooting for a set of boy/girl twins... we'll see!

 
click on over to Angela's on Saturday morning to see what everybody else has been doing this week.

Pretty pink progress . . .

What a sweet pattern in your baby quilts. I am sure if you keep at it you will make a dent in those 3 inch squares. They just can't last forever.

Great use of scraps.

Both baby quilts are adorable. They would be perfect for twins.

Lots of pretty in pink going on with your scrappy blocks.

Great pattern for baby quilts! Hopefully the scrap piles start to go down but looks like you are having a great time with them anyway!

S4P's asre so good for using a stash of fabrics - I love yours. What size are they? 16 patch another good way to get through those strips.
