creamy pink Delicious

creamy pink Starbright for do. Good Stitches

At last!  Bits and pieces of this Starbright quilt have been floating around my sewing room, teasing me, inviting me, testing my patience.  When the final package arrived from my quilting bee friend this weekend, I couldn't wait to arrange all those triangles into creamy, pink stars.

I have to admit, I was the littlest bit cautious about asking Love circle to make these triangular blocks.  But, I'm so glad I decided to trust their considerable skills!  The blocks have been a breeze to join together.  We're all in rows now.  Thanks, ladies!

Because I'm a little crazy, I didn't just throw together the blocks willy nilly, as I had at first planned. No, I was charmed by all the different shades of pink: spicy hot pink, whisper rose, warm peach and almost-purple magenta.  How could I resist spinning triangles to match those pinky shades?  I do so love patchwork.

This is bound to become one of my favorites I've led for do. Good Stitches.  I'll be so glad to see it go to some special little one through Wrap them in Love!

Speaking of do. Good Stitches, I've been brainstorming for our annual Celebrate do. Good year-end event.  If you have any suggestions for me, do share!  Meanwhile, be finishing those quilts so you can donate them and share them in our big link-up!  Can't wait to see them!!!

    1. Thanks, Hettie! It is a pattern I developed for my Angled class, currently in process. I am not selling this particular pattern independent of the class. Sorry! But, my classes do "encore" from time to time, so perhaps you can catch us next time.

  7. Oh, it is delicious! Pink is one of those colours you can make a whole quilt from, hey? I don't think I would ever do the same in green. :)
    This is the first time it's occurred to me that you make the blocks in triangles then in lines. My eyes just hadn't broken the quilt down that way. And all this time I though you were super amazing and patient with all those y seams! ;) I'm going to have to make one now!
    Enjoy your week. x

    1. I am definitely NOT into piecing with a ton of y-seams! Ok, but I have to disagree about green. My Emerald City (http://www.stitchedincolor.com/2012/11/the-emerald-city.html) is made up of all kinds of greens and I think it totally works! I really think you can do this with any color... But, I do LOVE pink.

  11. Oh, this quilt is so lovely ~ the colors are perfect!!
    I'm doing one by hand (admittedly for the last several years) and just love how it's turning out. Didn't realize you could do it by machine (silly me).

    1. Each person sent in 5-6 triangle blocks. I made up some of the extra edges!
