Candied Pink Hexagons

I have been working on my hexalong quilt (see my sidebar). It is quite addictive. I was wondering what to share for Pink Saturday and looked down on the floor which I am using for my design wall and had an ah-ha moment. There is a lot of pink in this quilt. SewFresh Fabrics on Etsy has been a life saver and Lynne of Lily's Quilts has helped with some fabric identification.


I also ordered from the Fat Quarter Shop. I didn't bring any fabric with me this summer except the Dr. Seuss fabric for my grandson's quilt. Then I saw this quilt and that was the end of the knitting....


I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Stop by and see the other PINKS!

I am waiting for one "giveaway" to arrive. Hopefully the drawing will be on Monday. I apologize for the delay!

The flowers, the butterfly, the bird, C'est Moi! It's wonderful. It does have a lot of pink, but it is sophisticated and adult, not at all little girl-ish, which is sometimes a problem with pink, if that makes sense. Anyway, I'm trying to say it's lovely and I like it a lot.

I can just see you quilting by the lake, what a great way to relax and to have such a wonderful item when you have finished. Have a great weekend, love Jackie in Surrey, UK.
