In the Pink

I don't pass this house very often, since it's not on my regular route, but when I passed it today, I just had to take a picture.  I've been in this area for over 40 years and for as long as I can remember this house has had pink shutters.  I think the pink roses are a new addition.  Isn't it charming?  It has extensive grounds on the side and back with several outbuildings.  But it makes me wonder who would put pink shutters on a house. 

Then a few miles away on another road is this little shop with pink shutters and trim, although a much brighter pink.

And how abut these pink trees in pots on the side of the shop? 

That got me to thinking about this quilt that I made for an online Black and White and Pink Challenge.

I wrote all over it with free motion satin stitch with as many sayings that contained the word "pink" that I could think of.

I also sandwiched pink buttons, paper clips, sequins etc. under the tule before quilting it with pink (of course) thread.

Be sure to click on the pictures for a bigger view.  Comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Wow! Love the quilt! How long ago did you make it? I can't seem to get motivated to start anything new since I finished the totem. I think I need a break. But your recent work looks terrific!

Love the pink, B&W combo....very effective, very original. That little pink store, selling Angels, has been there forever....who would have thought that location and that product would have been so successful.

I participated in that challenge, too; I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it here. Love the pink "about the town" pics.

Oooh, pink never looked so luscious and not cloying. What brand and weight thread did you use to free-motion quilt those phrases? They really stand out well...and in pink, that's a feat!
