Pink Lemonade Top

Our first weekend of summer vacation has been great. Saturday we had a quiet day because the kids had TOO MUCH fun from the previous day with their friends. They wanted to lounge around the house and not do much which was fine ... that meant more sewing time for meeee. :-) plus, John was on call for work so he was constantly on the compu.

Sunday was Father's Day so we made breakfast for John. Well, the kiddos made the breakfast and I cleaned up after them. I really don't care for cooking that much... only cooked out of necessities (he he)... and like it much better when someone else does the cooking... I'd prefered the cleaning up.

Then, for lunch, we headed over to my parents for my little niece's(5yrs) and nephew's (2yrs) birthdays and celebrating Father's Day also. Their birthdays are not on the same day...just close together so their parents decided that it's easier to celebrate both at the same times. There were a LOT food! Of course, I stuffed myself there and then brought even more food home... did I mentioned I don't like to cook? LOL

I wished that I had not forgotten the camera because my new baby nephew (almost 3 months old) was there. He's adorable! Ohh, how I missed my own babies!

We left later for home and made to our friends' house who live down the street from us for a BBQ and swimming. Same friends who had to cancel their previous BBQ due to rainy and cold weather a few weeks ago. Again, I stuffed myself. I guessed the whole point of the story is that I ate too much all day yesterday and will need to go on a diet soon because it's getting a bit difficult to button up my pants. *LOL*





Alright ... about that Pink Lemonade, my baby Orange Crush is now a flimsy!



I used more of those 2 inches strips and sewn 4-patches together in a row around the white border. Then added 4 inches of white border around that. Done!! Nice and simple! :o)

I love the baby quilt! How cute is that! The colors are great for a baby girl! Now I want to make one of those....lol. I like your Orange Crush quilt too! Maybe you can assign me a mystery quilt after I finish the boxy stars.

Love-Susan

I love how the Pink Lemonade quilt turned out! The green star points blend in with the pink squares and really make them stand out. It's funny how fabric choice can change the look of a quilt so much. The little squares in the border are just adorable.

Sounds like a perfect day, just chillin and eatin. Your pink lemonade is really awesome. The white makes it look completely different from all the other crushes. You almost have to take a closer look to be sure that it is the same pattern.
