Pink Saturday - Quilting

Happy Pink Saturday. I am hoping this post finds you all well and enjoying early spring.

I thought I would share with you all some of my favorite hobbies. Quilting and Crazy Quilting.

First up is a pin keeper that I made and dressed up with Crazy Quilting. The pin keeper is made from 2 CDs, which the pins slide in between for storage.

Next is one of my favorite quilts, each block was created by a different person. We each made 12 of our chosen block and then exchanged with the other 11 players. The theme of this exchange was "Garden Party". The block I made and exchanged is in the lower right corner. I found the pink rose fabric while visiting a friend in Northern California, and the green rose fabric, I don't remember. Anyway this quilt design is called "Garden Trellis" a perfect fit.

Perhaps next week I will share the Pink Christmas stocking I did for my grand daughter in Crazy Quilting.

I hope you have enjoyed this wee pink post. Thank you to Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound

I love your quilt!!! I have always loved quilts and wanted one for myself but never found one I thought spoke to me... Until last weekend. I found it at a garage sale in a little country town.... For $5!! I want to learn how to quilt. Do you have any suggestions for websites with patterns?
