Pink is one of those antique colors that call to me too.
Living in a house full of males – I’ve never had a chance at having a pink bedroom or a pink bathroom, but wherever I can, I can be found sneaking in some pink somewhere in a scrap quilt ----there are even some pinky=reds in my Talkin’ Turkey and in Orca Bay! Pink IS pastel red, after all ;c)
I showed you this pink checkerboard the other day. It’s still calling to me!
Simple squares set 7 X 7 --- what great way to show off those yummy reproduction browns and LOADS of double pink!
How about a great old “Jack in the Pulpit” set on point with loads of double pink!
Here’s a close up of that pink with a good look at the browns and blues used. I love how the fabrics change here and there…blue square with brown centers and corners, or all blue, or all brown, or blue corners and blue square and brown center…just use it up in as many different ways to color it as possible! Did you catch that one block on the lower right with the three striped triangles? FUN!
I remember the Quilt Police saying you should never use red and pink together. But look how dramatic the pink is next to the red in this broken star…isn’t it awesome?!
Here’s a close up of that quililtng..1/4” inside each diamond, and look at that gorgeous feathered wreath with the double spine! Swoon!
Bubble gum pink surrounding terrific 1930’s butterflies!
((Yes, my eye is on that yellow strippy jewel box next to it too!))
Rows of pink stars…..this one was interesting because the sashings are different widths. Could this have been for the pillow tuck?
I love the “Baseball” type quilting….just overlapping circles in the sashing….isn’t this a pretty block?
As the sashing got narrower, the baseballs became squashed ovals! :cD
I love what the gentle pink does to this very cozy looking 9 patch 8 snowball!
This has been one of my favorite quilt patterns forever. I love how this one ended at the edge of the quilt with partial blocks.
Such GREAT old scrap bag fabrics! Oh, I definitely see one of these in my future too!
How about this giant graphic flower? It’s a circa 1910-1920 and looks so great on the bed!
It’s the pink centers that call to me…and it’s sent against that great old peach background!
Here’s a close up of one of the blocks…love how those stripes go every which way! Isn’t this sweet?
Loved this fun conversational print background—it’s a young girl rolling a hoop!
Now this is a quilt I’d love to find a pattern for! The petals are NOT gathered as some flower blocks I’ve seen. These are all inset curves---I think I’d have to do this one as a hand work project.
There is just something about the pink in all these quilts that call to me! I hope you enjoyed them as much as I do!
It’s about 7am, and just about time for me to hit the road – I’m headed up to Bedford, Pennsylvania today! It’s about a 6.5 hour drive, but who knows how long it will take me…..Shamu breaks for all antique malls!
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
