Does Black+Pink=Blink?

51 x 63
Another UFO is finished.
Pink and Black Sampler
Blocks swapped in 2010



My August goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes  (#21 at the goal setting party) was to at least get a top made from those swapped blocks. 
Surprise! Surprise! I finished the entire quilt. 
(I was on a staycation last week - gardening, canning, sewing, cleaning- and got a list of things completed! )


I free motion quilted some flowers of light pink thread  in each square on my Plain Jane Janome.  

And I practiced some circles in the center  of the flowers (because I want to do some circles/snowballs on an upcoming quilt) and I like how they puffed up after a trip through the washer and dryer. 

 For the backing I had an old piece of  pink and black roses fabric in my stash but it was not enough so I added some ballerina fabric I had on hand.

The colors remind me of Good N Plenty candy. I love the back and the fact that you used fabric from your stash. Use it up!
