Tickled Pink Blog Hop

 Today is the final day of the Tickled Pink Blog Hop! It is being hosted by Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks.  
It seems I have been bringing up the rear lately on these hops, I think they are leaving the best to the last. At least that is my opinion!

We were to create something with pink in it, with five granddaughters I may have a fair amount of pink.
Bird in the Air blocks centre

I pulled a couple Bird in the Air blocks out of my orphan block draw, sewed them together, and added a fabric square to each side.

quilt as you go

I decided to do a quilt-as-you-go method for my project. 

A variety of pink strips for the top

The above piece is 15'' x 15''. Looks okay, but I think it could use a little something more.

that's better

A little applique and I think the front of my project is done. Now on to the back I pulled a piece of fabric from my stash, no idea how old it is. My guess would be early 90's?

simple diagonal line quilting

I made a quilt sandwich of batting and the fabric, both sides of the sandwich use the same print.
I made this piece 15'' x 17''.

the back in the freshly fallen snow

By now I'm sure you're wondering what did she make. 

Tada! A project bag

I made a fully lined zippered project bag. The bag finished at 14 1/2'' x 14 1/2''. Now the next question is what will I be putting in it, at this point no idea. Maybe I will list it in my Etsy Store, StitchinatHome.

Let's see what my fellow bloggers have made, today's list is below.
