Tickled Pink

I have made some good progress on Nantucket this week. 
I made all of my 5 patch blocks up and inserted a scattering of stars too.

Now I just need to sew the blocks together... 
and that shouldn't be too hard to accomplish this weekend.

Although I have some carpets to clean and housework to tackle
before the holiday!
Thanksgiving will be at my house this year. It is the standard, but I give it 
up every now and then. 
I do like it when I have a house full though.

I had a couple of "old friends" return home this week...

My Fat Quarter Shop sample quilts.
Strawberry Social and Butter Mints.
Both are kits that are now available at FQS...
they are made with Pam Kitty Morning fabrics...
which I am in love with. 
I love it so much that I have a couple more projects using her fabrics in the 
queue. I am dying to make the lunchbox pattern and I am toying with the
idea of using PKM fabrics for another quilt that is popping up this week
in blogville. You can see what I am talking about here.

Evie is going to love her Strawberry Social quilt.
I am hanging on to Butter Mints though.

Here is another little something I got this week.
A friend of mine had this for her grand children... who have now 
outgrown it. I was able to pick it up from her for a sweet little price.
I am tickled pink about it too!!!
Can you just see Evie playing with these sweet things?
We just need some mini size laundry to go with it!

14 friends stopped by to chat:

What pretty quilts! I love your Nantucket. I've been considering doing that pattern and/or using the M&S Reds for a quilt for my mom's bday. I have also been contemplating using PKM for the APQ QAL! I just love her fabrics--they are so cheerful.

I am not too far behind you Sinta. I finished up all my nine patches yesterday and am ready to start putting it all together!

Mini-size laundry? That's called doll clothes! I'd love to find a set like that for my grandkids. Even my grandson loves the little vacuum they have. He loves to help his mom.

And I love your Nantucket!

Oh your Nantucket is going to be wonderful!! I remember I had a little laundry set when I was young, Evie is going to have a blast washing her doll clothes and quilts. :-)

Nantucket is a beautiful quilt. I have quite a few of the M&S midwinter reds, I might have to make this one.
