Pretty in Pink

Last summer I taught a new tutorial of mine to a group of friends in Las Vegas.  I called it All Roads Lead to Las Vegas.  I then taught it to a group of friends at a Big Bear Retreat and called it All Roads Lead to Big Bear.  While in Big Bear I started working on this quilt using a layer cake of Kaffe Fassett fabrics that are primarily pinks or in the pink family. 

I finished it while at a retreat in Temecula (maybe that makes it All Roads Lead to Temecula?).  Vivs at Bears quilt shop added the quilting for me and this week I completed the quilt by adding the binding. 

Here’s is my original sample, a giant floor pillow.

I love them both.  I just may need to make another one.  Maybe queen size next time.

Christmas Placemats

My friend Pat and her husband Jim deliver Meals on Wheels once a week.  Several of us thought it would be really nice if we made Christmas placements that can be delivered to some of their meal recipients. 

I decided to make 4 of them and here they are. 

I used a simple stitch and flip method so I didn't have to add any additional quilting. I also used my faux piping binding to finish them.  I think they came our really cute and hope they bring a smile to others.
