A Touch of Teal ~~ Finished! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've had this little pink top sitting in the quilt queue for a while now. It had everything needed for a finish: backing, batting, binding. 

"How easy and quick would this be?," I wondered. "Quite easy and especially quick," I answered. 

So I loaded it and thought about quilt motifs. I wanted, as Richard loves to say, "Quick, fast and in a hurry." 

While quilt my last quilt, I stumbled upon a motif I like that is fast and pretty. It has the look and feel of a pantograph, except that it changes at random rather than repeat in ...

No Such Thing As Too Much Pink from Quilting & Learning

Did you know that there is "no such thing as too much pink"?  That's the name of this quilt, and here's the story...

This was many, many years ago and was one of the first quilts I made.

I had gone through the fabric that I had inherited from my mother. There was quite a lot of pink fabric, so I went shopping for more fabric to make the quilt. This was the first time that I realised how many different shades, tints and tones of pink there were. Since my mother's fabric was a few years ...

Pink Hearts! from Magpie Quilts

Hearts like these have been popping up all over the place and I'm sure you can find tutorials and instructions for something similar if you look.
Magpie Quilts
I started with a bunch of pink 2.5" squares that I had already cut - they are the basis for the single Irish chain baby quilts I frequently make.

Sew 3 pink and 1 white/background 2.5" square together to make a 4-patch block as shown below. These little 4-patches should measure 4.5" unfinished. Don't worry if yours aren't exact, you'll just have to make some adjustments as ...

Update – Honey Bee Variation Quilt – 1948 from Lotus Cove Quilting


You might remember this quilt, that I posted in 2014. It was made in 1948 by my great grandmother, Rose Brown Tague. The traditional honey bee block, in pink and purple, alternates with snowball blocks with green corners. The original post can be accessed under “Family Antiques” in the right-hand column.

I recently found an old photo, taken of my grandmother, Mary Josephine Hamrick Tague, holding nine-day-old me, her first grandchild. Covering her chair is this new quilt, positively dating it to 1948. That’s my father’s writing; he probably took the photo.

A Lovely Gift from TheEclecticAbuela

An anonymous lady, on a Facebook group to which I belong, worked through the administrator of the site to do a Santa Angel giveaway leading up to Christmas. She said she had fabric and other things that she wanted to share. My name was one of those drawn, and I received the package today.

Pretty Pinks!

 A big Thank You to the Santa Angel. Happy Holidays!

$5 Friday: Pink Ribbon E2E from Wasatch Quilting

Breast Cancer affects nearly every one of us in some way or another. Most of us know someone, whether it’s an aunt, mother, cousin, sister, or friend, who has battled breast cancer. In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month, our $5 Friday is the “Pink Ribbon” E2E, which was released in 2012.

$5 Friday


About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.  Of course, making a difference is more complicated than raising awareness like were trying to do.  However, if wearing a bracelet, sporting ...

Today we truly have a Berry Colourful Bear to add to our Beary Colourful family. Please welcome the Red-Violet Bear of Healthy Choices!

Stars on Strings--An Original Design from TheEclecticAbuela

This quilt began on graph paper. I have an EQ program, but I was defeated by triangles!

Stars on Strings--66" x 88"

I tried this more than once. My first experiment was to use regular, brightly-colored strings.

As you can see, the red stars are lost amidst the chaos!

I went to neutral strings which worked better to show off the stars.

Please forgive the camera strap in the corner!

 I stayed with this idea, though, for me, it was hard--I always want MORE COLOR!

The making wasn't too hard, though 60 degree triangles can be tricky to assemble ...

Color Master Box of the Month! Life is Pink from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Life is pink color mood board

Did you know the color pink was painted in holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behavior? It’s crazy how different colors can affect someone’s mood! When I was younger I did not enjoy wearing bright colors, especially the color “PINK!” Pink was always a color I associated with being “feminine”, and me being the tomboy-- I wanted nothing to do with it! But as I grew up, I realized pink is more than some girly color, it represents compassion and happiness. It worked for those in prison, so I guess I can use some of that in my ...

The Red Buoy – Colour Inspiration Tuesday and Linky Party from Clever Chameleon

The Red Buoy color scheme by Clever Chameleon

Colours good enough for Paul Signac are good enough for me!

On the weekend I was treated for my birthday with a ticket to the current exhibition at our state art gallery. This exhibition has my name all over it – it is called “Colours of Impressionism”. A collection of masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay, this exhibition shows the progressive use of colour over time by Impressionist and then Neo-Impressionist painters.

The Red Buoy (La bouée rouge) was painted by Paul Signac in 1895. It is one of the attention grabbers of the Colours of Impressionism exhibition and is featured ...

in the pink from Making A Lather

For the rainbow scrap challenge, there were 7 blocks this month that needed pink in my Tokoyo subway quilt. It is getting exciting as more colors are added, this block is nearly done waiting for orange.

On this block, pink was the first and only color. At this point all 25 blocks have been started and have color.

I also made 6 pink birch tree blocks.

soul in pink from Making A Lather

May rainbow scrap challenge color is pink and rose. ooo how lovely.  But what a surprise to find only a handful of 2 1/2 strips in those colors. hmmmm I must not make enough pink things. With the colors so far, I have had a whole drawer full of strips in that color.

I had enough to make the monthly soul searching block at my Friday small group. I like it in pink.

I think I will spend some time outdoors today and soak up a little Spring.

Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Silly Galah from Clever Chameleon

Were you the target of any April Fools’ Day pranks this year? I hope you weren’t caught out as a Silly Galah!

Silly Galah color scheme from Clever Chameleon

The weekend before the Easter break, Paul and I had the rare pleasure of two nights away without the kids….. actually it might be the first time we’ve had two consecutive nights away without the kids……hmmmmm. Anyway, we escaped out of the city and spent two days in the Adelaide Hills, admiring the beginnings of autumn, relishing the warm weather and drinking in the quiet. It felt amazing.

On the second afternoon, Paul decided to ...

Our Renters are Pretty in Pink from Quilted Joy

Rainbows and lots of contrasting colors can be fun, but sometimes you just want a pink quilt. These are some creations that are pretty in pink.

Lynn's Modified Rail Fence quilt with fun kitty fabrics

Lynn made this quilt for her niece. If you look closely, the fabrics have cats on them. I like the use of the Circle design board we have here that you can rent. It’s a nice contrast to the corners and straight lines of her rail fence quilt blocks.  And being that it is a “cat” quilt, the circles kind of reminded us of balls of yarn!

Lynn’s sister Nancy also created ...

Sapphire (Ruby) Stars is Finished from TheEclecticAbuela

Last year, Kevin the Quilter hosted a mystery quilt project. He called it Sapphire Stars, and it was fun to participate with others in creating a quilt.

His quilt featured blue, but I went with my favorite color--RED! I don't think I ever really understood the concept of light red, so my quilt doesn't sparkle like Kevin's, but I like it. Please pardon the bad pictures--I was battling both the flu and the wind!

 Many thanks to Kevin for the great project.

Giant Hexagons Quilt from Quilting Stories

Giant hexagons

Half hexies

Half hexies

So happy to start again a new project after 10 months disability! The good thing is that I had all my time to mentally prepare it! So I had decided for this new quilt to only use fabrics from my stash, choosing my favorite hues (pink, blue and brown), among my reproduction fabrics.

I assemble hexagons, using the half hexie technique. It's a very quick and efficient method. I will write a tutorial in a next post.

This early stage is quite encouraging, I am very pleased with the appearance of these hexagons on my design board...
