The Pink Quilt...
I spent most of the past week working of Willow's lap quilt, I had seen this technique over at oh fransson! & was keen to give it a try. In retrospect the technique is designed for a small scale quilt so using the block size that I was (4") it ended up being a bit of a pain, & less of a shortcut then I had planned.
I started off trying to plan this quilt but I the end I cut up lots of squares & lay them out on the floor, moving them around until I was happy with the layout. All I knew was that I wanted to the quilt to graduate from pinks & reds to white.
Thanks to Kate, Tam & Kristine I had lots of pink liberty to put into this quilt which makes it extra special & oh so soft. The rest of the prints are from Patchwork on Central Park. Half way through making the quilt I wished I had used an off white rather than a stark white as my solid fabric but I was impatient to finish & it was what I had on hand. Now I just need to choose a backing fabric so I can quilt & bind it.
