20 Shades of Pink mini quilt for the Quilt Alliance TWENTY Auction



The Quilt Alliance, a non-profit organization whose mission is to document, preserve, and share the story of quilts and their makers, is currently holding an auction to benefit their work. In celebration of the Alliance's twentieth year, the theme for these mini-quilts was to incorporate the idea of "twenty" in a work. And this is what I came up with.




This is my 20 Shades of Pink mini quilt, and as you might guess, it does indeed contain twenty different shades of pink cotton fabric. The hues range from the palest pink that almost reads white to a very dark hot pink.




I cut the twenty fabrics into strips that measured 1 1/2" wide by about 23" long and sewed them together from lightest to darkest. And then I cut the pieced section up into three pieces, reversed the order a bit, and sewed them back together again.




I quilted it with Coats cotton machine quilting thread in pink, in straight lines that run parallel to each pieced strip of fabric. The backing and the binding are a light gray cotton, which I think works really well with all of that pink.




The quilt measures 20" x 20" and is signed and dated on the back by me. And as I said, it's part of the Quilt Alliance auction on eBay, so go bid! Here's a direct link for your convenience. The auction runs through Monday, November 25, and all of the proceeds will benefit the Quilt Alliance. Good luck!

That's a beauty, Heather! "Cherrrry!" as we used to say as kids in the 60s.
