Pink Lemonade...

The new quilt pattern that I want to
show you today is called...
"Pink Lemonade"

It's a square quilt that I made to lay on point across my table for a vintage themed luncheon or a tea party!

Of course it also makes a
nice size wall quilt ...
or would look cute folded
across the sofa...or on the back of
a comfy chair...
or would be a really cute vintagey baby quilt!

The depression glass lemonade set was given to me by my Grandma Crane.
She kept it inside the built in glass hutch of her kitchen since before I was born!
 Grandma told me that it was given to her as a birthday gift by one of her sisters
sometime in the 50's.
I have always admired it and she recently gave it to me before she passed away.
I think it goes perfectly with my
Pink Lemonade quilt!

The vintage dress, hat and pearls...along with the vintage gloves on the table live in the front room of my little cottage!

Her name is Martha and she looks ready for a lovely afternoon attending a 
Pink Lemonade party...don't you think?

Lori
Pin It!

Sherryl said...

I am a nine-patch nut, so I absolutely ADORE (A-D-O-R-E) your new quilt. Gorgeous. And it's so serendipitous how wonderful how it looks with the gift from your grandma. (or did you plan it that way when you picked the colors for this line?) You're very lucky - and very talented.

I love lemonage! Pink or yellow... but made in this pattern... both are delicious together! I would love to make it as a baby quilt!

Nedra said...

The depression glass in yellow is so unique from anything I've ever seen. What a precious gift from your grandmother, and I can understnd why you would find a special spot in your living room.
I love the simplicity of Pink Lemonade.

Lynn said...

What a cute pattern, perfect with you fabric line!

Beezus said...

I also have a piece or two of Iris and Herringbone -- it always reminds me of my grandmother because she had a bunch of dishes that seemed to match in that same iridescent peachy tone. :)

Shannon said...

PERFECT!! Everything is so great! I was thinking pink lemonade the first time I saw the fabric. I love nine patches to this quilt fits the bill. Thank you!!

Anita said...

Love your new pattern and great Daisy border print, it is very vintagey :) I've admired your pitcher, I think you've shown it before. Thanks for sharing!

jmniffer said...

The entire set up with vintage glass, Martha and quilt is lovely. Not something that would work in my home though, too many clutzes live here! Great new fabric line. Thanks for the chance to win some.

Perfect title for your post. Cool as a glass of lemonade. Check out my turkey quilt at our cozy abode for my first attempt at applique I think it came out so neat... hugs, LJ

Wendy said...

Gorgeous! I love the little plus signs in the cornerstones of the sashing, to a brand-new quilter like me, that looks incredible but completely unacheivable!

Martha is brightening my morning. We are expecting snow here (unusual for October). We could use a sunny Pink Lemonade party about now...

Oooh, pink lemonade..that sounds so refreshing. Thank-you! I appreciate my Grandmother too and isn't their influence upon us for good beyond measure?

Pink lemonade is a very good name. I don't like yellow but I love this quilt and I love the jug and glasses. I have a vintage pitcher and glasses that have dafidils on them.
