(Truth be told...I am aiming for a hat trick by the end of the month!) This is my second finish...the Pink Lemonade quilt along by Lori at Humble Quilts.
Somehow the "lemonade"(yellow) pieces fell out of my version of the quilt, and I don't know why, but they were replaced with more of a cosmopolitan (red) essence!
I used up a lot of scraps on this one. You hopefully can't tell, but some of the red squares were pieced from smaller scraps, and some of the half blocks were really using up the tiny bits so they don't have the same pinks within the blocks.
I did some straight line quilting as recommended by Lori. I didn't draw any lines as you can probably tell on this photo of the back of the quilt ...just "eyeballed" it across the blocks. I had already quilted it when I read this blog post by Debbie about using a hera marker to mark your quilting lines. I have a hera marker and really like to use it for complex quilting designs, but just didn't think about it for straight lines! Funny how a solution is sometimes right in front of us, but we just don't see it.
Thanks again to Lori for a fun quilt along and a great little quilt!
