An oldie but a goodie…

This week I wanted to share a recent finish that was actually started years ago… so many years I am a little embarrassed.

Photos can not do this neon pink justice… it really is vibrant and a little crazy.  The grey and white does a good job of calming the pink a little…

A few of these blocks were left over from a Portland Modern Quilt Guild challenge in 2013… the rest are ones that I added (some I even designed the paper piecing pattern for!)….

Okay I have to admit I have a problem letting things go and this was particularly true of the couple of blocks I inherited for the charity program.  They just screamed to be made into a quilt, but they were so bright that they did play nicely with any of the other orphan blocks I had… you see my dilemma right, I had to make more blocks to go with them.

Someone who appreciates pink in all it’s glory – actually my kind of person…. is going to love this quilt…and just in case the front was not enough to sell it I found some fabulous Ikea fabric in my stash for the back…

  1. OMG this is spectacular! I absolutely adore it! This is why I frequently pop by your page to see if you have posted lately; because when I do you blow my mind 😍😍 the colors work sooo well even that hot pink LOL

  2. Fabulous! I can quite see why you had trouble letting go of that one, and the backing’s perfect, too. I see Mr Wombat is sticking with his quilt showing stance, pinkies aloft….

    • Sharon the paper piecing patterns for most of these blocks are under the Free Paper Piecing pattern tab on the block. There is no official pattern as I just made it up as I went along. Sorry.
