What's on the line?

"Pretty in Pink" is what's on the line! And isn't it lovely? And even if you don't like pink, isn't the design simple and pretty?!! 
Take a close look at the lay-out in the photo below and you can see how easily you could make this quilt - basically the Drunkard's path pattern - in your favorite colors..........
This is another quilt my dad bought at auction and it's fairly worn but still has such beauty. I dearly love the old quilts. They are full of stories that we don't even know. I so often wonder why someone chose a particular pattern or where did the fabric come from that was used in a quilt?  Oh, yes, how fun it would be if the old quilts could talk!!   As I look at the close-up, I wonder what it would look like to pick a pretty leaf green for the pink fabrics and then some lovely floral for the white fabric areas? Hmmm.......another project I can add to my "to do" list. Boy, is it getting long or what? LOL!

Just want to say thanks for all the comments in my "Chase away the winter blues giveaway". I really enjoyed reading all of them. I find myself wishing that I could give away fabric to all of you, and I probably could gather the fabric..........I just couldn't cover the cost of mailing. LOL!

You all have a good Monday!

I think two color quilts have a simple beauty and I really like them. I am not usually a pink person, but I do think your pink and white is a beauty and an inspiration.
Happy stitching

GREAT design and so simple once it is looked at closely! I always love your old quilts.....because they are, of course, new to me!

That is a neat quilt. It looks from a far quite complicated but yes it could be done.

The Drunkard's Path quilt reminds me of the quilts my aunt used to make.

I like it and I like the color.
