|Tickled Pink 2015 (I don't have pictures from last year's...strange)|
The event is a 12 hour sew-in...dinner included! There is some free sew time, eating time (all the time), silent auction and raffle time, group bee-sewing time of a huge charity quilt (raffled off the following year at Relay for Life) and after midnight there is "mystery quilt" time.
Last year the event's theme was Toes in the Sand...and I picked some cute fabric 1/3 yard cuts I had in my stash that were very beachy for the "mystery quilt".
And got to sewing...well, at least as much as I could functioning on no sleep at 2 in the morning!
I sent the quilt to Missouri Star Quilt Co for long-arm quilting...
...FLIP-FLOPS! How perfect is that!
I just love how everything turned out...this one may find a permanent place in my home...hmmm
Some Stats for the quilt:
Size: 68" X 74"
Quilting: Missouri Star Quilting - flip-flops
Fabric Used: All stash, but not all scraps
This makes finish #3 for 2017...and 44 remaining UFO's (8 remaining on the 1stQ List)
