Pink Lemonade before Quilting

Finished this little beauty up over the weekend.  Thank you to Lori of  Humble Quilts for sharing this sweet project.  Now I need to find some time to quilt it.  

This was beautiful evening here in Florida.  My husband and I went for a bike ride just before supper.  So enjoyable!

Quilt a Long with Lori

My blocks for the Quilt a Long with Lori are complete through Step 2.  Yeah!  When the first step was posted,  I did not have a pink that worked for me.  So Friday after work I stopped at JoAnns and found a pink fabric.  These blocks have been a delight to piece and I am enjoying the slow pace.

Blossoming Trees and Just Takes 2

Continuing to work on my Blossoming Trees.  I've gotten this far and I am stuck.  Not sure what to do for a border.  Just trying to be a little creative and not only follow a pattern.

In other news, I am working on my Just Takes 2 blocks.  Four of the six are completed.

Quilt a Long with Humble Quilts

Lori at Humble Quilts is sharing a Quilt-A-Long this month.  It features a yellow and pink antique doll quilt with Shoofly blocks.  I am planning to Quilt-A-Long.  It looks like an enjoyable and easy quilt to make.  I pulled some fabrics from by collection.  I'm a little short on pinks...might have to do some shopping.

For my Just Takes 2 quilt, I am planning to use the various red fabrics I already have with a Kona white.  That way I will use some fabrics that I have had a while and it will make some space for newer updated pieces.  My selections are these.
