Pink Bar Quilt - ALYOF

A finish ... A finish.... Yay.....

This is my January A Lovely Year of Finishes Goal, and one of the Q1 FAL goals....


This is what it looked like at the first of January  - A few Strip sets and a potential Backing fabric....



And here is is today:  ( like it's shoes? - its always hard to know what shoe goes with pink - tee hee)


This one was just a random pile of strips and so - I sewed them into a coin type set and put pink around them.  I also wanted to try that feather cable quilting that is so cool.

Note to oneself..... when you want to try something new - try it on a small quilt.... not a 60 x 75 one....




And I did use the Hot Pink with gold stars as the backing - and binding. I like it

Awesome! I don't know that I would have thought of putting a color with your coins, and it turned out terrific!

Fun quilt! I bet pink is a big favorite at your house. LOL.

Congrats on your first finish for 2015!

Beautiful! I really love that feather cable quilting. It's perfect for wide borders or sashing. Thanks for linking with TGIFF!

I don't even like pink, and I think this quilt looks great! I love your quilting, and your comment about experimenting on smaller things made me laugh.

I think it looks great. I really like the coin quilt and I plan to make one for my nephew who is graduating high school this spring.

Your quilting is gorgeous! I am totally stealing it! And I will likely do it on a large quilt, too. This turned out very well.
