Bargello with a Pop
This pillow was made in Virginia Beach and is 15" by 12". I was inspired by the heart lollipops on the long white sticks, and the purple reminds me of Wonka wrappers. This is my first time trying Bargello and appliqué! My pillow is named "Bargello with a ‘Pop" because it has lollipops instead of a twist. Since the pink fabric is flannel, this pillow has both a cold and a warm side! —

Sweet for the Sweet
This quilted bib is named, "Sweet for the Sweet" because I made it for my sweetest great granddaughter, Ella Rose. By the way she is my only GGD, along with 1 granddaughter, her mom, 9 grandsons, and 1 great grandson. I started by collecting sweets packages from my pantry, mostly chip packages, and printed them onto printer ready fabric. I then cut them out and fused them to the bib. At this point I finished the bib using some left over Easter fabric, then added the lace trim and hanging conversation hearts. Finally, I quilted it. I live, babysit Ella, and quilt in Oklahoma City, OK. —

Here is my entry. It is a table runner. When I thought of candy my
first thoughts were bright colors, round shape. We have been snowed in
here for a number of days so my first couple thoughts I couldn’t do
because I couldn’t go to the store. So I made do with what I had on
hand. I call it ‘Supersized Nerd(s)’ Thanks so much-

Creative Process: The first thing that came to mind when I saw this weeks challenge was a piñata. So, rather than pine and try and come up with something else, I just went with it.
I pieced the tree with the "sky” and “grass”.
Then, I cut two heart shapes out of some tie die fabric, sewed it together and turned it inside out. I tried to make it look like a broken heart (piñatas live to be smashed). I cut short pieces of rainbow rick rack and sewed them onto the heart. Since it got SO THICK after I did this I had to sew the heart onto the background from the back BEFORE I quilted it. I used gold rick rack for the “rope” and sewed on pieces of strawberry candy (I used the strawberry candy because they were the only ones I could find at walmart that had sewable wrapping.. Which is okay because it goes with the outdoor theme). I also added a few felt flowers and some butterflies to try and bring it together. I’ve never done anything like this before. It was pretty interesting to do and I look forward to the next project!!! -Ash —
