Pink Productive Weekend

Last weekend I got to go away with some fantastic ladies and spend the whole long weekend sewing. Even though a stomach flu meant I had to bail for a day, I still got so much done and had an amazing time. It wasn't until the last day that I realized that everything I brought to work on was pink.

Pink baby girl quilt-

I guess after this quilt, I just wasn't done with plus quilts. Truthfully, I'm still not sure I'm done with them. There may still be a third in my future- one to keep.

You've already seen the commissioned quilt and the stockings. You've also already seen Anna's handmade gift- the Putnam County Quilt.

She loved it. She has slept…
