My Favorite Color Big Mouthed Make-up Bag

A Little Blue
I live in a coastal town near Newcastle in Australia. My favourite colours are blue and purple. I decided to go with blue for this challenge.
I love the work of Victoria Gertenbach who blogs at the silly BooDilly. This mini was inspired by some minis she did a while ago. I made a similar one previously using blues and greens. This one measures 12.5 X 13.5. The perfect size for under the ipod docking station.
I Heart Camilla!!
I created this in Appleton, WI. My favorite color is and always has been purple. I did not know until Wednesday night what I was going to do. I had 3-4 fabrics to start with from my stash. I had a conversation with my husband, and he said, “Just make something for Camilla like you usually do!” (Camilla is my first grand daughter and she is 3.5 months old) Then the idea of a bib came to mind. I had a pattern from a book that I bought this summer, and already had the pattern cut out. I like it because it uses Velcro. Anyway, I used cotton batting, two purples, and three heart shapes, and used only one white, which is the same fabric I used in challenge 1. I also put cotton batting behind each heart to make it stand out a bit. It took me a little over two hours to complete last night. I used the free-motion quilting foot, zigzag stitch and hand-stitch. I will post a photo of Camilla wearing the bib later this week.

Chasing the Winter Blues
Project Quilting week 2 I played around with a wonky star block to begin, using the tutorial from Bonnie Hunter’s Maverick star block. Then I added blue strings in various widths using a braid technique. The end result is a table runner 15″ by 30″ that is just a little off kilter, and a fun way to chase away the winter blues.

pink in a blink
Pink in a Blink baby quilt (38″ x 52″) made in Ashland, Kentucky for Project Quilting Season 4 Challenge 2, My Favorite Color.
Pink is not really my favorite color, but for the challenge of using just one color and white I decided to do something I hadn’t done before, so I made a very pink quilt. I pieced the blocks using Elizabeth Hartman’s “Crazy Nine Patch Lattice” technique, using 27 different pink fabrics. The blocks are so easy and fun to make! While I was making them and thinking they were coming together quickly, the phrase “pink in a blink” came into my head and stuck. Hence the quilt’s name. I added the flowers using bias tape made from an additional pink fabric. I did this after the piece was quilted. I like doing it that way because then I don’t have to work around the bias tape while quilting, plus I like the stitching on the back of the quilt. I sometimes use this technique for appliqué as well.
Another fun challenge!
Texting from the Heart
