Mile a Minute quilt in Pink

I love the Mile a Minute quilt, probably because I love using up scraps, I like the look of scrappy quilts and I also like all the bits of memory that are held in each piece of fabric.
I have posted the story of my border and sashing fabric before, however I haven’t posted the finished quilt before.  Here is the story again - I was working in a Quilt shop one day and a lady came in with a generous bag of pink fabric scraps left over from a quilt she had made, she wanted to know if someone could use it.  We tried to convince her to keep it for a future project however she was not interested, so I decided to give it a good home, and here it is making these scraps come together into a Pink Quilt.

Pink Mile a Minute was quilted with Anne Bright’s pantograph ‘I Love It’.

This quilt was donated to Absolute Dance Studio's Christmas fund raiser for the food bank.
