I have enjoyed piecing these blocks, and although unsure of the end result until all blocks were pieced together, I think has turned out really well. I love the huge range of pink fabrics, the colors ranging from purple pinks, to those pinks tinged with red and orange. They all "clash" together wildly, yet harmoniously.
It never ceases to amaze me that such simple pieced blocks can make such great quilts. I have added further interest to the quilt by using some quirky feature fabrics in the centers of some of the quilt blocks.
I think my niece, Georgia 6, whose favorite color is definitely pink, will love this quilt. This quilt top is now off the my sister, Karen from Quilts on Bastings. Her contribution to the birthday quilt for our niece will be the quilting. Karen is a professional long arm machine quilter, and her free motion quilting is inspirational.
And because so often you ask for patterns for my quilts, I have literally been tied to the computer for days. I have written a pattern for this quilt, including fabric requirements and suggestions, cutting instructions, a step by step sewing guide for the blocks, quilt top assembly and finishing the quilt.
