Pretty Pink Flannel...

I told you I'm in a pink mood this week. I've been working out of my stash, too. So, yesterday I went into the cupboard, looked around and these beautiful precuts of pink flannel just jumped out at me. How did I decide on the design for this quilt? Four colors equals four patches. Simple, right?

I think there will be over sixty four-patches when all is said and done. Should I put sashes between the patches? Or, should I simply join them together for a bit of a wind0w pane effect? I haven't decided yet, so your input would be helpful (and appreciated).

I have yards of pretty pink plaid for the backing, so once I've got all of the front assembled, I'll be able to go right to the quilting. I'm anxious to see this pretty, girly-pink quilt finished. There's just something about the color that's so happy, sweet and comforting. Add the fact that it's flannel and I can't think of a happier hug to brighten a room.
