Easter quilting

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY







This week we are posting Easter Pink and Yellow.  I hope the oranges qualify as yellow (after all orange is yellow + red) 

I made these little Easter quilts last year and decided to share them with you.  The pattern for the Easter Bunny Quilt was in a quilting magazine last spring.  I don't remember which one.  The bunnies and tails are applique.  I purchased the fabric at Granny's Attic.  Granny's was my favorite quilt store in Kentucky but went out of business last summer.  Another victim of the economy. 

The quilted egg is made of fabric strips from my stash.  I used the strip quilting method.  I also made the carrot tablerunner with the same method.  It's fun to get out the Easter quilts and use then during the Easter season.  Happy Quilting and Happy Pink Saturday. 

For more Easter Pinks check out the list on Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.  On BJ's Sweet Nothings you will  find wonderful pink goodies (and some great looking food).  Enjoy your visit.

Gosh Pam, what cute quilts, and you are so right...it's fun to get them out for a favorite holiday. I really love the Strip pieced egg and carrot quilts. Such a good idea for place mats. I sure need some new ones and have lots of scraps. Maybe there will be time after Easter. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Easter...Sue
