sewing Saturday, I'm in the pink!

Welcome to this week's sewing round-up! The color of the month as RSC is pink, and I love it!
This week I sewed improv, irregular log cabins with all shades of pink, all shades of white
I start with the color in center, then go round and round and round til it's about the same size as all the rest.

No measuring

just fun sewing

using up skinny strips and bits, I kind of want to sew just these blocks together now! I like the shape and setting! What do you think?

I finished the little pinwheel piece this week, all quilted and sequined! It is so pretty on our family room credenza

can you see the silver sequins?
simple quilting
Once that was done, I turned to #3 in the painted pink flower series... the one printed in full color on fabric. I wanted to do an abstract sort of log cabin mix of green and pink
the quilting has begun!

I just sewed til the book on disc ended, then sewed the little blocks together in two rows, trimmed them down to put on two sides of the flower.
before the bits were trimmed and sewn to the flower
I started a new pair of socks for dh, this time in blues... I finished his first pair, made a pair for me out of the leftover yarn, and now the blues are so pretty...

Those pink string logs are very striking! Love them.

Before I left sewing for painting, Log Cabin was my favorite block. I had never seen wonky ones, and I have lots of scraps. They are great, I may return to simple sewing! Yours are great!

Congrats on your PINK Pinwheel finish and SEW much progress up on your design wall, LeeAnna!! Did you make more pink Wonky Log Cabins than any other color? Looking forward to seeing where you are going with that project!

Molly the Airedale said...

I love all of your pinks and the little pinwheel piece is so cute and yes, we can see the sequins! Happy Saturday!

The log cabins in pink with different whites and neutrals is so much fun! Are you wanting to keep them just in pink? I might want to also!

Frédérique said...

Oh I love your wonky log cabin, so pretty!

Deb A said...

Oh, how I do love a wonky log cabin quilt. Your in pink just sings and I see some fabrics in there that I have in my sewing room. How fun!

Mary in Peoria Handmade said...

Oooo-love that first shade of pink- is it raspberry? Putting black polka dot with the pink is so smart . I just saw the sequins!!

MissPat said...

I would never have thought to use the black with white polka dots for the background of the pinwheels, but it's terrific. Also like your wonky log cabins.

Yes, sew the pink log cabins! What size will it be? It’s just cute as can be!

Susie H said...

Beautiful pinks! I love pink too which is funny because as a girl I did not. Have a great week!

Preeti said...

Pink and Playful - totally you!!! Stay safe.

Marsha Cooper said...

I've not done any log cabin blocks since I went overboard after taking a class a few years back. If only there was time to do everything I want to do.
