Pinned and Pink

I have been busy the last few days.
I have pinned (no, not pinterest) my Sparkle Quilt.
She is ready to be hand quilted.
You will not see her for a few months!

I also made three pink blocks for my quilter's palette quilt.


I was able to add more pink scraps to my vase!

Here are my quilters palette blocks.
A rainbow of color.

I plan on making a large block for the back. I am going to do a row of each color for one larger block.
Sashing, white Kona. I like cornerstones but with my eyes they NEVER match, so I will not be adding that part.  I also need to decide if I want a border or want it to flow? What do you think?

Well, I am off to try to make a wonky tree for my swap. It is a paper pieced pattern that I drew.
We shall see!!

Happy Sewing!


  1. Ohhhhh I am loving your are picture stool....adorable.yep you have been busy

  2. Such fun rainbow blocks! Like fresh crayons from the box. I'll patiently await the next reveal of Sparkle Plenty.

  3. Congrats for having "Sparkle" ready to quilt. Love your palette blocks and can't wait to see the finish!

  4. Love your new pieces and your quilt will be beautiful with hand quilting. I am quilting today, just started, but doing a big stitch, so hoping to finish this week, in a hurry on this one;)


  5. You have been very busy! I've loved seeing all your color blocks. I have a hard time matching sashing without adding in the corner stones lol.

  6. I love love your blocks....

    Do you hand quilt all of your quilts?

  7. Love all the coloured blocks Jane..that is going to be a gorgeous hand-quilting, so homely, soft and cozy.
    Have fun!
    Julia ♥

  8. You've been busy! Like Samm...I not only love the the stool too!

  9. Your blocks are looking great Jane! Didn't know you had so many colours of the 'kerchief girls. They look great in there.

  10. You know, it shows! The fun you had making these color blocks. Especially the pink! This is going to be so cool. Great idea for the back too.

    May I please see the corrected corners on the sparkle know I need to check it...

  11. Love the pinks!! Never enough pinks in your life! In your border - how about a strip of all the squares mixed up (or not mixed up) in between two solid white strips? OR adding prairie points with all the colors around the edge? Slap me or hug me? lol

  12. I need to re-think the color of my stool that is like that - maybe teal???? Your progress is so colorful and I love how everything is coming together. Busy, busy. Judy C

  13. Your "Sparkle" is lovely, but I especially love your color palette blocks! They are gorgeous! Can't wait to see how they look with the sashing!

  14. Love your colour palette blocks and your plans for the back. When you hand quilt, do you use a hoop?

  15. I am lovin' your blocks. It is going to be a fun quilt.
    Are you going to use pearl cotton to quilt your sparkle plenty quilt?

  16. Jane... I love it that you really pinned and not Pinned on Pinterest! Isn't it evil? LOL! I need to do more of the kind of pinning you did!
    Your "Sparkle" quilt is so pretty... can't wait to see it quilted. I only wish I dared to hand quilt. Maybe someday!
    Love your blocks too! You have inspired me to go get something done tody.

  17. Jane, your quilter's palette quilt blocks are awesome...a lot of those fabrics are looking familiar. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt!!


I always love to hear your thoughts!
