Lots of Pink

My blog is looking pinker and pinker by the week and this week's Sylvia's Bridal Sampler block - Laurel Wreath adds more pink.  This was another doozy with lots of set in pieces and Y seams.  I decided to hand-piece this one and the points turned out well but the block is still a smidge larger than the 6-1/2" it should be.  Accuracy is definitely an issue with this quilt.
Sneaky peak at softie finished last weekend for our on-line group's next swap.  She will be flying to a warmer climate next week.
A few strips have been added to the Hexagon Quilt

and this is a filly version of Giddy Up - hopefully John will have some time on the weekend to cut and drill the dowel so I can finish putting it together to give to a little tot when her new baby sister comes home from hospital early next week.

I've been to the pictures twice this week - last Sunday with our family to see "The A Team" (great characters, funny one-liners and as much action as would be expected) and on Wednesday night Jenni and I went to see "Toy Story 3" - as much as I enjoyed this movie, there's no way I'd take small children to see it.  There were children crying in the theatre, which I found upsetting.  Buzz Lightyear's Spanish dancing is sensational.

I love all the pink!

Oh my! That Sylvia's block looks like a killer. You know how I feel about those Y seams. I may have to attempt mine by hand too. UGH!!

Nothing wrong with pink, Lynda! Love the filly - bought the pattern the other day and going to make one for GD for her birthday in November.

Love your block, you did a fantastic job. Your pink hex quilt is coming along nicely and I am sure Giddyup will be loved

Wow! You've been busy! Time for another announcement! I love the pink and green, although I certainly didn't love making that block! What a shocker! And what's with the comment on the Contrary Wife block?? Self portrait indeed. Want me to come down there and flog him with a wet fat quarter??
