V and Co.: friendship quilt along block # 31


welcome to my turn to the friendship quilt along. if you have been following this whole time  and have been making the quilt as we go, welcome to the next one! 

if you are just hearing about it, it’s okay i think i’m going to make this quilt this summer when i have a little more down time. maybe we can make it then together. if you’ve been making them make sure you place them in the flicker group

mine is block numero 31. follow the link to get the full instruction on how to make it. 

i chose to make my block out of my simply color pink ombre. 

i kind of have this thing ombre.

find how to make these onsies here .

… and for pink. 

find how to make this appliqued bag here.

…and well these days….

 …i guess i have a thing for hearts as well, as you can see in my i heart you pattern. 😀

find the i heart you pattern here.

but before you think i only have a thing for pink i also have a major thing for all colors:

as you can see in my first fabric line simply color and the second line coming this july simply style.

i must confess though i am a huge sucker for green, blue, and gray. those are usually the things that catch my attention first, then of course anything that goes well with those is a love too…so uh… yeah… i guess i like a lot of colors. 🙂

(ahem, excuse my awesome organizing…i’m in the middle of trying to fill up my newly installed bookshelves in my office, and i am doing quite a good job at it if i do so say so myself color coordinating and making it look yummy.)

anyways here’s my block again in my ombre pink fabric:
