Tickled Pink Blog Hop! It's My Day!

 


Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks is hosting this fun blog hop and I am happy to be participating!  Hopefully this will nudge me back in to blogging!  This is day #2 so if you missed yesterday use the list below and go back and see their tickled pink projects too!  I have been working on customer work so I decided to show off 2 of the most recent finishes as they are both PERFECT for the hop!

The first thing I am showing is a quilt I made using a little girls clothing that she wore the 1st year of her life.  LOTS of pink and lots of little girls tickled giggles.  There were a lot of monogrammed items and I think it turned out great.


My next show and tell is my most current finish and although it may not have pink in it, it is full of HEARTS!  Perfect for Valentine's Day which was yesterday!  The fabrics are all Girl Scout fabrics and the young girls badges will be sewn to the quilt now that it is home.  I quilted the Scout Pledge in the lower solid yellow area below the bottom row of hearts.  I could kick myself for forgetting to take a final photo of the finished quilt once it was bound but I was trying to beat the post office closure the day I bound it so it got boxed and mailed.  I need to ask my client to send me a few pics of it for my files.  I do have this pic that I made to show her the quilt before it went on the frame for quilting.  I am very TICKLED with how it turned out!


Lastly, I want to show off something I made a few years ago when I was headed to a quilting retreat in New Hampshire.  We were all sent a piece of fabric that depicted something you might find there hence the cow fabric since New Hampshire is a Dairy state.  We were instructed to make something with it.  My readers from the past know of my love of pigs, so I made a pig and then made a cow to ride on him.  The challenge fabric is his cape.  I added a sign to the tail of the pig that reads New Hampshire or Bust!  The parasol was the perfect finishing touch!  I gifted him to a friend of mine there at the retreat who also has the same love for pigs.  She is from Iowa.  I asked her just recently if she still had the set and she said she did.  I hope this tickles you as much as it did me to make and gift it!




Thank you for joining me on my day and I hope you love my Tickled Pink Show and Tell!

I love everything about this post. The travelling pig is a heartthrob, and the memories quilt heartwarming. Hearts for guiding couldn't be a better choice. So glad you shared these makes. Thanks

I "LOVE" your quilt made from baby clothes. It is incredibly well done. That's been something that's been rattling around in the back of my head for a long time now, so I was really excited to see yours. Great Girl Scout quilt as well, and a perfect way to keep those memories alive in a more useful way now. Your little pig and cow is hilarious. Too cute!

Carol said...

Holy cow! (LOL) I love that pig and cow and am sew very impressed with your construction of them (I haven't ventured into anything like that.)!! BTW, the quilts are really neat too. Both should be well-loved. Thanks for sharing!

I really like your quilts and the ideas behind the designs but the cow riding on the big with that parasol is absolutely priceless.

Your clothing quilt is so amazing and perfect in pink. Hearts are always a hit and that cow and pig come along and steal the show. I'm definitely tickled pink!

Both of your quilts are beautiful. I love the string hearts and would like to make some one day. But the cow riding the pig just stole the show. It is so adorable. Thank you for sharing.
