All About Pink

Pink was the color of choice last night in my sewing room. This is going to be for the new baby girl of some friends of ours from Colorado. I did get the other border on and machine appliqued all 4 of the curved borders last night, but didn't get a new photo. My plan was to do something simple like a Popcorn pantograph in variegated pink thread, but my husband came in last night and said he would recommend a flower in each square, so we'll se how this one gets quilted tonight.

The borders were done using the Wave Edge ruler, which I purchased at the Sewing Boutique in Hoopeston, IL, while on the Illiana Shop Hop last year. About a dozen others on our bus purchased this ruler also and I don't think I've seen anyone at Show & Tell with a finished project using it, so I may be the first.

Ruthie, your quilt is so beautiful! The parents and baby will love it! It looks so pretty and feminine. Your husband's idea of a flower quilting design in the center of each block sounds like it would be a very cute accent. - Kathy at http://www.stashinhalf.blogspot.com
