OK, so this is a week late but I thought I would share that I sort of participated in the Quilt Pink project this year. I didn't make a whole top, but I helped make a block. After seeing Mary's Pink Quilt at her blog
it gives me inspriation for next year! Her churn dashes are ADORABLE - twisting & turning all over the quilt top! Take a look if you haven't seen it already. (I still do not know how to make a person's blog name appear as just their name as a hyper link to click on....???...)
Here's my Snails Tail Block. My first time ever to use paper templates! I love the bright pinks from Moda that they selected.
I did make a block but didn't get to participate last Saturday in sewing the blocks together. I hope I get to see the final quilt after the top is quilted before sending in to Quilt Pink. We each paid $5 for a block kit (pattern and fabric) and made the block and when we turned it in we got our $5 back.
What a smart marketing plan for the store... b/c it ended up when I took my block to turn it in before the deadline - instead of walking out with my $5, I came out with a bag of fabrics and they kept my $5 along with about $40 more of my own! LOL
