In the Pink - a UFO Finish

54 x 66
(Yes, I do see now that a couple of blocks had the corner four patches oriented the wrong way)!!! 

I completed my July Lovely Year of Finishes goal  (#103 on ALYoF goal setting page).   Actually, I did more than my goal. I only wanted to complete the top but I've not only completed the top...I quilted it on my plain Jane Janome DSM and then finished sewing down the binding by hand. 

I swapped a different color of Thrifty Block (directions from Block Lotto) each month with a group of ladies on a Yahoo Group in 2010. (I think it was 2010 or it might even have been 2009. I left the group long ago).  I finished a Rainbow Thrifty Quilt late last year with some of the other colors. 

I quilted it, as I previously mentioned, on my plain Jane DSM. All 99 squares have free form (very free form) flower quilted on it. 

The back is a 100% cotton PINK sheet in excellent condition from the thrift store. 

I think I know a PINK loving little girl who will love the quilt.

Dongratulations on your pink finish! I have also have an ( almost ) finished pink quilt lying around , waiting to be blogged about.
Yours is very striking!

What a pretty quilt. I love the freehand quilted flowers...I wish I could do that! X

I agree with Maggie -- those crazy spiral-centered daisies are the perfect quilting design for your quilt.

I hope you will also share this one on the Block Lotto, so we can have a photo in the gallery.
