All things (not)PINK but BLUE

The second challenge for Project Quilting was announced on Sunday, this week the challenge was a color theme & the color chosen was PINK.  I have never been much of a pink fan and am drawn more to browns & greens so I knew the real challenge was going to be finding pink fabric in my stash. 

I purchased a Moda Fabric “Songbook a New Page” mini panel last fall from -Fancy That Design House- and one of the panels had some pink on it. 

I picked through my stash & found some bits & pieces of pinkish fabrics to match it and did a little quilt as you go coaster? hot pad holder? mug rug? Your guess is as good as mine! I embellished it with some different decorative stitches in a burgundy color thread & it was done. 

I was finally getting over a nasty sinus infection this weekend & knew this week was going to be a busy one getting caught up on all the things I didn’t get done last week! I knew if I was going to get any type of project done it had to be small & simple and be done in one day. So I started this and finished it on Sunday evening! The finished size is about 9 x 12 inches.

Little did I know how busy the week was going to be! 

Bright and early Monday morning we were all surprised & welcomed the 9th little leaf on our family tree ~ our new grandson ~Rowan Fenwick Fiedler~ he arrived safe & sound to join his parents and his older sisters Willow & Aspen. 

I was more than happy to spend the week snuggling this handsome little guy! 

I thought the saying on the little panel I chose was sure fitting for my week… just not in PINK  this week because we are all on TEAM BLUE 💙💙💙
