Pink and Scrappy

With just a day before the deadline of ScrapHappy Saturday with, I completed my summer haitus quilted wall hanging. The goal was to use up hot pink and mint green scraps. I am also linking up with for Finish It Up Friday.  I made enough squares for a quilt but I wanted to keep this project manageable. I have a fabric wall in my cubicle, easy enough to pin up this piece to brighten things up.

Since this is a project for my own enjoyment, I used appliques, one being a poodle patch I have kept from a childhood bathrobe pocket. I needed a break from Christmas in July projects that utilize darker holiday fabrics.

I stitched in the ditch with the walking foot using pink and mint green thread. The pale pink bee border showed up much better as a border than as a binding. The bees got lost in a baby quilt I bound it in that fabric. Since we are on the subject of Pink, I am linking up with Beverly at howsweetthesound for her:
Pattern of the Day features a pink suit from 1955.
Hospice thrift shop finds meant I spent way too much money but you have got to grab the items when they appear.
Just could - not - resist this Park House pin. It will reside on my wall hanging. It has a theme of white flower appliques throughout.
$15 for the souvenir plates, basket, book, doll and jar. Look for Steampunk Suzy to be transformed in the near future.
After I found the Knott's Berry Farm souvenir plate, I thought wouldn't it be nice to have a Disneyland one too? Hospice thrift about 30 miles away had just the right one.

Sometimes your wishes come true when you travel to the Great Thrift Shop Beyond.
