Quilt Pink and Judy’s 1 hour Quilt

August is almost over and that means I can get ready to start a new quilt. I’ll probably run right to the bookstore too and buy a bunch of quilt books just to make up for the month without any. I don’t think I will challenge myself to not buy books again however not starting a new project was good for me.

I’ve been wanting to do both Judy’s 1 hour quilt and make a quilt for Quilt Pink. Since I’ve got limited time in September for quilting I’m going to combine both and make the 1 hour quilt out of my pink fat quarters and donate it. I’ll have to buy some of one of the pink fabrics for a border but I already have the fat quarters and background so it will be mostly from stash. Now if I can just finish piecing the Nine patch top before I start my 1 hour Pink Quilt I’ll feel like I actually accomplished something with my August Challenge.

    The FQ on the far right back of the picture looks so fun… I love the swirls mixed in with the other pieces of the design.

    Nice choices! I’ve loved what everyone has done for the Quilt for an Hour project and yours is going to be great . . and going to a great cause. Thanks, Mary! You’re so generous!!

    Those FQ’s are pretty. I thought they were orange at first, just the way they show up on my screen.

    That is a fun collection of fat quarters – glad you found a plan for them!

    The FQs look great, but I do so love your 9 patch; 9 patches are somehow homey to me. Is your move going to give you time to do all this-when do you move?

    Funny – they look orange on my monitor! A wonderful selection of fabrics and a great goal. I need to make some “quilt pink” blocks from my stash this month – we are having a “sew in” on Sept. 30th to construct the top.

    yep, I am doing Quilt Pink too- with the collection of squares I bought way back in the spring. My local quilt shop will be hosting a sew in too..so many good causes to sew for..but gotta do this one. I am sure yours will turn out great-good idea to combine them that way!

    Wow, I really like all those pinks! That’s going to make a smashing pink quilt – and it won’t be a pastel washed out pink either!

    Looking forward to seeing how this one goes together. 🙂
