pink lemonade?

After way too much deliberation and one trip to the LQS I decided on this blue from my stash for the setting squares of Pink Lemonade. (Other fabric was acquired at the LQS. When some goes out some has to go in - right? :0)This project turned out very differently from what I planned at first. It doesn't seem to matter how much planning I do at the beginning - my quilt projects seem to evolve anyway. It was a fun little project. Lori has a link-up on her blog so you can see all the other quilts made in this quilt-along. It is so interesting to see other people's versions of the same project.
I'll get around to quilting it soon I hope! Thanks Lori!!

Happy Quilting!

Wonderful variety in all our versions, and yours is unique and bold, with the blue blocks. It's a great little quilt.

What a happy combination of colors. I really like the way the cocoa brown is set off by the pink and blue. Makes me think of cupcakes! Wonderful finish.
