Powering Through my Pinks.

I kept my head down and made great headway.  This is easy sewing and trimming, it's just time.  Here are 200 1/2 sq triangles,


90+ 4 patches


and 140+ solid squares.


 I've also got "Imagine" put together and cut down to the right size.  I need to work on making my letters a little bit smaller!

 I have the pattern sketched out on graph paper, so that makes putting it all on the design wall easier. I can only put the top 1/2 together  and then I have to stitch this up to make room for the bottom half of the pattern.

And here is the start of the design on my wall.


I've made more pieces than I need for this top and I do that for two reasons.  Now I can play with placement of prints and values AND I've already got a start on next years raffle quilt.  Knowing what you need in advance is a big help and with all the beautiful pinks that I have been gifted, I will keep all this together in a box.  When I just want some easy sewing, I can pull out a few pieces, make a few blocks and put it back.  Then I"ll be that much closer to the next top, and there will be plenty of pink tops coming from this gift that will keep on.
