Pink and Chocolate-Quilting

I have been perusing google images....I love pink....love chocolate....love quilting.....
I found this sweet quilt at Quilting Melodies.
And I am TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH FELT FOOD. There are patterns for this little creation...at Etsy! Type in felt food or felt candy...you won't believe the wonderful goodness you will find that is calorie free!

This pattern below spoke to me! Hahahaha....make me...buy me...you need me...come on....
(Fat Quarter Shop)

Oh.....I'm groaning...these strawberries are so sweet and cute! Find the pattern at Ericas.com

The same for these little tasty cakes!

Join in on the fun for Pink Saturday! Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound is our amazing hostess!
So I had to go to Joann's and pick up some pink and chocolate brown fabric...just a little since I already had quite a bit of pink fabric in my stash!
I cut out squares and hearts.....and started sewing like crazy.
First a chocolate heart on a pink square...and visa versa...

Then I stitched the blocks together...

I'm not finished but I love how it turned out. I have set it aside for now....
Please if you would say a little prayer...I have been at the hospital all week with my mother...Doctor is not sure what is wrong.
Thank you sooooo very much!

Oh Debbie I am keeping you and your Mother in my thoughts and prayers for your dear Mother to be alright. It is scary when the Doctors don't know what is wrong.

I LOVE all of the inspiration pictures you have shown and I can't believe you have already almost whipped up a new and FABULOUS quilt!!! It is GORGEOUS!♥

That quilt is coming along so well and I love the fake food too.

I know what it's like to have a parent in the hospital...it's not easy and I hope you find out what's wrong soon so it can be treated. Thoughts and prayers, Betty

I so enjoyed looking at all the examples of "felt food" you showed. They are so delicious-looking in a nonedible way! Just when I thought I had picked my fav, I kept reading and found out what YOU have made, is the one I love the most! You are very talented! (I do think those pin cushions are adorable too)I sincerely hope that your mother is feeling better and they have figured out what is wrong.

I ♥ to come here on Pink Saturday. Your blog is always so sweet and comforting. Cold and gloomy winter up here this year so Pink Saturday is one day I can always count on for a little pink ray of sunshine.

I'm afraid that I can only be trusted around sweets that aren't real these days☺ Your quilting is remarkable!

Thanks for being my pink sunshine today☺

Wishing you the comfort and warmth of those you love this weekend.
