I have been drawn in by the Humble Quilts blog that Lori writes. I especially have enjoyed seeing the enthusiasm for her quaint little doll quilts she has been designing to share with the blog world. Shown above are the tops for "Strawberry Fields" and the latest, "Pink Lemonade".
I used only fabrics from my stash to piece this cute little treasure. Most of the parts are scraps leftover from my Thimbleberries club quilts. I happened to have yardage for the pink background and the yellow setting squares. Those 2 fabrics are patterned, but read as solids, since the print is so subtle. I don't think I would have ever used the pink in anything else, but it was just the perfect hue for this little replica!

The piecing on the Cheddar and Crackers has been a fun challenge. I need to keep looking back at a computer photo I saved for a reference. I also have a pen and ink sketch I made to leave by my machine for a cheat sheet, because I'm finding it a bit tricky.

Pink Lemonade has been such a breeze to piece. There were no challenging parts to this, just simple, pleasurable sewing. I could be very relaxed while stitching this one! LOVE IT!!!
