Good evening dear friends; Yes it is that time again for all of us to show off our lovely Pink Pretties…. And a very huge Thank you to our Sweet Pink Hostess Beverly. of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ you will find so many more lovely blogs to visit, and they will be showing off their Pinkness, so stop on by, you won’t be sorry you did…… So now sit back put up your feet, and sip you coffee or tea and have a beautiful Pink Saturday..
As most of you know I have been gone for awhile trying to get my G. G. Niece’s quilt,, well I am almost there…. yea…. my fingers are really getting sore,, all the pin prick’s and such…. But I thought I would show you what I have been up too with it,,, I hope you enjoy looking at my photos, of the progress, I will try not too show too many photos…. lol’ OK here we go………………….
Sewing the squares together, they are 5 inch squares.
Here I am sewing them into a top…. good thing I numbered them so I could put them as I had them laid out.. it took me a bit to find a pleasing look, that flowed nicely.
This is the Top all sewed together,,,,,,,,,, now I know some of you are thinking,,,,,,, she sewed them with the seams on the front,,,,,, now I am not crazy, so don’t worry,,, it is supposed to be like this,, it is called a rag Quilt..
Just a close up of the Fabric’s… I just love them all. don’t you???????? Love the man on the Moon… to to cute.
Here the I put all the layers together,, backing and batting. I know it does not look like much and a little uneven, but really it is not…. so don’t worry,, I really know what I am doing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, OK most of the time.
OK Ladies,, this is the almost finished Little Lucy’s Quilt… I am still doing my hand quilting on the blank squares only… the other ones have a sweet bow and button sewed on really tight so they won’t come off…
As you can see by the needle I am still quilting it.. I was going to put the bows and buttons on each one, but it was starting to look way to busy, and I did not care for that look… so I did a few on each line… it seems to look better that way…. so what do you think?? did I do the right thing……
On this block it might be hard to see but if you click on the photo’s you might see it better…. I did a heart, and in each corner there I put a baby bottle, booties , duck, and baby pin…
On the back I used my old Chenille bed spread, so it will be very soft for Lucy when she is wrapped in it…
OK last photo of the quilt,,, I promise…. hehe,,, I quilted each block in a different pattern.. one has some dragon flies on it.. now that was not easy to do, but they turned out pretty good… When I have all the quilting done, I have to clip all the seams and that takes so very long to do,,, then I wash it and dry it and it comes out all fluffy and soft,, the seams just fluff out so nice like a rag,, and the more you wash it the softer it gets…
Now I will show you all the fabrics I have chosen for my next baby quilt,,,, I just love them,, most are a soft flannel… I had so much fun picking them out,,, even Honey Bunny was a huge help…. how sweet was that..
I hope you can see them,,, if not click on the photo to see it better… I took a lot to get the best of them..
I can not wait to get started on this one… the name of the Quilt is Nite- Time Teddy Bear…. it is going to so much fun making it…. The brown and black and light tan are for the bear and some block’s and the pattern ones are for bibs and pj’s and for framing the blocks….
Well dear friends,,,, I hope you enjoyed my Pink Saturday Quilt… I am so looking forward to paying you all a visit and see what you have for your Pinkness…. I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to stop by for a visit,and to leave me a kind word… I am so blessed to have such friends….
So until next time; God Bless;
