Purse and Pink Squares



Well I tried a couple of new things this week. The first is this purse from the book Patchwork with Pizzazz by Lise Bergene. I like how it turned out. Next time I will use some interfacing or maybe a stiffer batting to make it stand up a little better, but it was fun to make.



Then I decided to go ahead and make the second set of 4 patch blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville mystery quilt. This is for a birthday gift for a dear friend who is a two time breast cancer survivor. I am not sure about these yet, but we'll see if step two of the mystery helps them out. If you look at the Quilt Pink Magazine there are a lot of colors mixed well with pink. I am not sure what I will use for the four accent colors on this one. Probably bright pink for one of them. Maybe a bright yellow also. Any suggestions?

You should use Blue and green or aqua but need a dark in there. Deep marron would go good with the pink.
What a nice gesture on your part.

Looks good - both sets. I am not planning ahead at all, so I really wonder where this mystery will take me :-)
