we are gearing up for February…which means we get to go a little overboard with pink (but really is there such a thing as too much pink?)
Anyways…I’m not sure if I liked Pretty in Pink the movie…I have blended that movie with Sixteen Candles…either way I prefer the Breakfast Club and our English Garden in shades of pink.
This project is so pretty…mom and I have both called dibs on it and Mel hasn’t even seen it yet; she’s a big fan of pink too!
English Garden is 88 x 106 inches and features 10 shades of pink ranging from cotton candy to rouge. Then we used a bleached muslin for the sashing, a small floral for the cornerstone 9-patch, a small rose print for the border, a cream and dark rosey-pink for the check binding.
Kits are ready to go and identical. Online and in-store.

My Stars in the Garden featuring Brenda Riddle micro-prints is up in the shoppe. We have it framed and over the mantle in the window. It pops against the white frame and white wall. If you are thinking of tackling it…check out the complete kit or a pattern.

if you want to use colors similar to mine…
I suggest the following:
As for sashing…I’m using unbleached muslin and I’m pretty sure my cornerstones will be scrappy. (Camille of Bonnie and Camille @thimbleblossoms on instagram did a white sashing and scrappy cornerstones if you’d like to take a look.)
