My Dash of Pink

I started out looking for something to make to hang on the wall that I could look at while sitting at my computer.  This was one of the items I had listed as wanting to do on the 2013 New FO Challenge.

I found the Dash of Pink project at which is a Better Homes and Gardens Network Site.  They have quite a few projects, patterns and how to articles and this one got my attention.  A Dash of Pink was inspired by “Dash of Summer” by designer Tara Lynn Darr.

I got the center made using only fabric from my stash and was very happy with it.  I had thought to use the pink print from the center or the churn dash block as the inner border.  When I asked hubby his opinion, he said that he liked the red one instead, so that's the one I used.

When I finished with both borders, I draped it across the back of our couch and found that I really liked it there!  I'm still working on it because I have to find fabric for the backing, but I think I'm going to have to go hunting for something else to put on my wall.  My hubby said that he like this one best of all my quilting.  I guess it will probably have to stay on the couch!

  1. Tami, I really like your churn dash quilt. Your hubby was right, it does look like it belongs on your couch.

  2. Love your churn dash quilt...great color

  3. Love the pink in the middle! Great job! Looks great on the couch!

  4. It's always nice when quilts get the "Husband Seal of Approval." It really looks great on your couch. I have to agree with your husband. The red in the border really works well.

  5. That is so pretty. Great idea adding that little bit of color.
