(Un)Perfect pink patchwork

Happy belated Valentine's Day. I sound like a broken record, but I've been busy working on a couple of custom requests. One of which I finished up yesterday...




It's a throw sized afghan. I used Hobby Lobby pink and hot rose as well as Red Heart's perfect pink. Usually, I work each square, lay them all out, and use the join as you go method with a border color, but with this one, I made up and attached each square as I went. It's a bit more difficult, because I like to be able to move things around, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I hope my customer is too. I'm in love with random patchwork -- afghans, quilts. I think it's a little like life: it's never perfect, and you make it up as you go along!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

  2. It's beautiful as well as all your other afghans. Would you be able to tell how many skeins of the Caron One Pound you used for Donna's blanket - Off White, Pale Green & Soft Sage? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    1. Hi CuteStuff, Thanks for the note! For the throw size, it took one partial skein of the yellow, one for the white petals and about 2 skeins each of the pale green, soft sage and off-white. Sorry I can't be more exact, I'm usually mid skein when I start a project (I use all of those colors often) and I did not pay too much attention at the time. I hope that helps a little though!
