    “Pinklet” the 10 minute blocks that took 45 minutes…each

    I just got back from a quilting retreat at my sister’s house. I am exhausted! Who knew that laughing and sewing could make you so tired! These are pictures of the quilt that I worked on while there. I had the quilt pretty much put together and sandwiched when I got there and spent most of the week doing FMQ on my little ‘Pinklet’. It’s a twin bed quilt for a guest room and I have another pink quilt in the planning stages for the other bed ( more on that when it is finished).

    I always try to learn something new with each quilt and this quilt was a challenge and I posted pics of a few blocks to get input about them. It’s wonderful the way we can get help here when we need it! I traced and colored all the flowers with crayons. I sewed and ripped, sewed and ripped …then fumed and fussed… the ripped again! It is not the best quilting job I have ever done, but the most ambitious. Each circle has a different motif ( I was very close to hating this quilt by the time I started quilting and decided to punish it by practicing my FMQ on it). Now that it is done, even with it’s flaws, I am OK with it and will proudly put it on one of the guest beds.

    You should display it proudly. It's beautiful. Love the flowers and the quilting.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I never cared much for the 10 minute block pattern but WOW ... LOVE this quilt!! You really made a simple (and to me boring) block come to life. Your quilting is wonderful.

    Bravo!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    This is a fabulous work of art. I love the quilting and the effect on the binding is wonderful. I have not seen it done like this before. Awesome. We need a tutorial!
    I also love the ric- rac and colored flowers.
    peace
