Pink is the new….

Another Pink themed Paper Piecing Monday…

  1. “My black and white stash”… Now I know what I am missing: a themed stash. Guess I need to go shopping (the 10 tubs of fabric groan at that). Love the baby quilt layout. The zebra fabric is extra cute.

  2. Hmm, you’ve reminded me my black & white stash is rather low… I need to go shopping! Love the layout, I think the contrast is great and the combination is sweet for a little girl’s quilt.

  3. Ivy posted about your blog and your beautiful blocks on the Modern Quilting group on FB – thank you so much for the gorgeous, free patterns!! Love your work and I’m now following you directly!
