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.


  1. 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!!Judy L.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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. 🙂
