Pink Steppers... Pink Hats.... and Finished (or not!) Friday!!!

 Oh my Heavens... did this week not just FLY past!!!! It seemed to for me! I am not sure where it went - but at least I got a few things finished...... 

Pink was the Color of the Month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.... so I dug in!

This is the Quilt I finished :

Got a tiny break in the wind and actually had sun ( as opposed to dust or smoke)  so I ran to the trailer!!!!

Ta Da!!! My Finished Pink Stepper Quilt!! (tutorial Here) 

And because is was so florally - It needed some big and bold ( and kinda quick) Quilting on it!


Oh! and  shot of the back!
Hot Pink
I had a whole bolt of it, and I am surprised at how many places I have used it!


and then my Hat recap!!

I didn't get as many done as I wanted - but Vacation, and family things kept me kinda busy in the evening.  I do have one in progress - so you'll have to see that for May .

I didn't have any pink in my yarn pile - so I went in to Hobby Lobby. I found the Pink and Green there and it was awesome! it was called Crafters Secret Big Idea yarn and there was 810 yards per skein. 

I really liked how soft it is!


So there you have it... My Month in Pink!!

Your pink quilt is so happy and beautiful. Great that quilting too. And I see that you're ready for winter already, or are they summer hats?

The reprieve from the wind (& dust and smoke) has been so welcome. Though I believe it is supposed to return today. :'( Boo! Great pink quilt... and I love the big quilted flowers!

Mari said...

That is a really cool quilting pattern! I love the bright green stripes on the hats, too. Have a good weekend!

Just love your pink quilt! I'm sad to see the end of the pink month myself.

Snowcatcher said...

That's a great pink finish, and oh, how I love the quilting! What a great motif! Congrats on the hats. You amaze me with all your finishes, in spite of everything life throws at us!

Another cute Stepper. And what awesome quilting!

What do you so with all the hats you knit?

Your pink stepper quits is so cute. Perfect for a girl or young teen!

Also, I’ve been admiring your pink “clamps”! Are they flamingos? And where did you find them, as flamingos aren’t native to Colorado! 😆😆😆

I don’t have a horse trailer to hang quilts on, but I do have a back fence. And could use some of my very own clamps, so I don’t have to use Mr Busy’s “ kinda dirty” ones!

Bonnie said...
