Pink Lemonade update

My version of Lori's (Humble Quilts) Pink Lemonade is a flimsy, as of about midnight last night, just in time for the end of the Pink Lemonade quilt show parade.



It took several shopping trips but the yellow that finally found me is just the ticket.  The top went together with very little fuss, thanks to Lori's great directions, and only a few churn dash tips a little cramped.

Lori sent me these lovely pink charm squares as a thank you for suggesting the name Pink Lemonade for her quiltalong project.  Thank you very much, Lori, these are sweet!

i thought the name you came up with was perfect
the yellow was challenging for me too. in the end i tea/coffee dyed mine in hopes of getting it just right.

The yellow is very pretty, but I love the subtle pink in the pieced blocks. Very nice.
