Pretty In Pink

I call this one Pretty In Pink. Because it's pink, and I'm itching to watch that movie again please.

It's made of 16 patch blocks that I think are super cute. I actually was going to name this 16 Candles (I totally have 80s movies on the brain) but the hubs thought it was a little confusing cos there aren't any candles... *face palm*

I put a thin white border around each 16 patch block so they'd pop against the pink dot. I was initially going to sash in white but I figured the blocks would get lost in all that white.

Since the front was slightly busy, I used a solid dark brown for the binding.

There's a white with pink dot on the front, so I went the opposite for the back.

It measures 40" by 50" and is currently available in the shop SOLD! :)

Why not "16 Candles Pretty in Pink"?? Or is that too wordy?

I think your white border and sashing choices were absolutely perfect! It's great. I love it all! And those are 2 of my favorite movies ever. I just had an 80's marathon a few months ago and we watched those 2 and The Breakfast Club, Say anything, and Some Kind of Wonderful. It was super dorky and super fun!
