Pink

Pink is defintely not my favourite colour for quilt-making, but I've begun to appreciate it while making Becky's Roses. I have made this quilt in double-quick time, as a 'welcome to your new home' present for Becky, and now her home-owning dreams have collapsed! Never mind, I think she'll still love the quilt.
This picture proves that we have had a bit of sun lately, although the wind has been quite fresh too.
I have also finished the little wall hanging for my challenge group. It looks good now it's all quilted and bound, although it's a bit puffy in parts, due to all the bias edges (and me being too impatient to unpick bits which have gone wrong!)
It was fun to make, and will look great on my kitchen wall, but I don't think I'll be making any more!

I'm not a huge fan of pink but I do love the little pink wall hanging. I like it's free form look and the circles are wonderful. Are they pieced or appliqued?

I like how both the quilts turned out.
I'll get around to doing my wallhanging one day. It's on the to do list along with so many more quilts.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

The roses quilt looks stunning. I'm eager to start mine once I've finished some work-on-the-go. Hope you're enjoying the holidays.

I've got my flutterwheel challenge piece to the quilting stage...I like it, but like you, won't be rushing to make another...

I absolutely love the little wall hanging!
