Pink and Chocolate quilt top...

Hey everyone!! Welcome again...things are pink again...with a little chocolate brown!
Here was a little chocolate cherry cross stitch I worked on for Valentines AND JUST FINISHED! I'm determined to finish ALL projects that I start! Easier said than done!

... a quilt top I just love, I've added batting and the backing and safety pinned it (my form of basting!) together. Now I just have to machine quilt it! I have a 25 year old Bernina that has been my friend for a long time now and I will machine quilt it!

Next, if you missed this...I made a Garden/Cottage style cloche with chicken wire. The chickens won't miss it...although hubby squinted his eyes at it...and then at me. I just smile. How can you get into trouble for stealing if you smile. He probably wondered which chicken pen I stole the wire from. I told the girls (chickens) not to say a word or they would be DINNER! Big smile.

Last but not least....I visited French Laundry Blog for Pink Saturday. She has the loveliest blog....lovely pictures and ohhhhh the handpainted pieces with roses. My heart just got weak looking at them. Please give Judy a visit. You won't be disappointed!

Oh am I the first visitor. Just goes to show that I'm still trying to get my google reader to 0 so that I can start fresh this weekend with my visits.

Love the quilt, the colors are wonderful together and the hearts are so sweet!

Enjoy your weekend!

Brown and pink are such a pretty color combination. I love the great idea with the chicken wire.

Good for you! I have two antique quilt tops to put together. I haven't a clue what to do, but I'll learn.

Love brown and pink. Happy Pink Saturday!

I love the quilts. I can see the time you put in to them. They are lovely. I have a quilt I started many years ago, I should get it out and work on it after seeing yours.

Way to go! A finished UFO! You have done a spectacular job on the quilt with the applique and piecing. You're almost there and I imagine your Bernina will be just the Gal to GetErDone! Happy Pink Saturday....Sue

Hi Debbie,

Love the pink and brown together and, of course, the cute bunny! I am so going to make me some chicken wire cloches too. LOVE them!!!


Hi Debbie,

Thanks so much for giving me a plug in your post. I love your pretty quilt. I had to work this weekend, so no Pink Saturday for me, but I hope to make at least a few rounds this week.

All the best,

Your quilt is so cute! I love the colors. I've always wanted to try to make one but I never seem to have time.

Love that quilt! I enjoy making quilts too. Well, I love making quilt tops, but the quilting part bogs me down. I have trouble sitting still that long. Love all your Pink shows for today. Thank you for sharing.
