All About Pink

Where has the week gone...we spent the weekend at the lake relaxing. There wasn't much to do since it rained most of the time. We got out for a couple of walks and saw the hummingbirds, a few bunnies and even a weasel sitting in the grass. One feeder had over a dozen birds flying around the feeder, it sure was cool to see that many hummingbirds in one place. I did some cutting for this quilt, the way the windmills are done requires squaring up of each block. This quilt I had 192 blocks to square. Once that is done the quilt goes together quickly. I just put the borders on yesterday....It's done and I love how very bright and cheery it will be for a summer quilt.
Here is a close up of one block and cherry border fabric.

Happy Stitching!

This is terrific - I love it in pink. I'm doing a similar one in polka dots. Now that I've seen yours - not only am I motivated more than every to finish mine - but may have to do it in reds.

Love your quilt and I love pink too.
I just saw some hummingbirds this morning on our feeder for the first time this spring. The most I have seen is four on our feeders. That would be neat to see that many at one time.

Cathi said...

Sometimes the best vacations are when you can sit around and do nothing, aren't they? I usually like darker, muddier fabrics but those pinks look like they could brighten any day no matter what the weather!

cute, cute, cute! I was thinking this would make a good swap block sometime. Only smaller size blocks I think.

Can I have it? LOL I'm sure your not laughing! OK....I think it is fantastic for in my quilt studio! It is so flippin' cheerful!!

As for your naps....I hear ya...loud and clear. I had my hormones checked and the family doctor says I'm normal....hmmm. After watching Oprah today I'm just not so sure. I've been to the doctor with several of the complaints I heard and really think I need "balancing" LOL
