Pink Progress

 Last week I decided to take my sewing machine along with me to mamma's.  Between her upset stomach and Doctor appointments I managed to make a few blocks with my scrappy pinks.


After making a few of the blocks above I thought it might be a good idea to make a test block of the alternating block.


The best part was seeing how it was going to look with both blocks together.  I'm Lovin' It!


There's no time for a proper tutorial.  It's such an easy pattern I'm sure most of you don't need a tutorial.  So I'm going to give you the basics.
The pinks are scrappy so there's no way I can give yardage for them. 
3 yards of pale yellow background.
1 yard for the binding
5.5 yards for the backing
The quilt will finish at 72.50 x 84
Below is how many of each you will need to cut.

Pink and yellow are such cheerful happy colors. They remind me of sherbet and summertime. Lots and lots of good wishes to your mom!
