In the Pink.

Sometimes everything all at once is just the same colour all around us.
On our walk we saw these wild flowers.

Keeping the tools we use protected.  These are made in the hoop.  Designs by Artistic Designs from  Secrets of Embroidery.  The scissor fobs have a very important job, when a pair of scissors fall. They act as a weight and would  hit the ground first.  Thus protecting the scissors.
A Baby Quilt,with a hint of mint green.

Sometimes it is the one colour quilts, which can be a challenge.  Taking a regular pattern, creating a new quilt with one colour.  This pattern appeared in McCall's Quilting magazine a few years back.
 Using the different prints in this collection, to create the flowers, leaves and butterflies.
Follow the pattern layout to place each piece in the correct place.
Machine applique with a blanket stitch, was used around each piece.
Next the quilt was quilted, in the ditch.
The completed quilt, with the binding on.  It was sewn with Cure for Cancer fabrics,  for the challenge to raise funds,  to find a cure for cancer. 
The end of summer, these pink flowers always give us a burst of colour.  They remind me of black eye Susies, except they are not yellow with the black centers.

  1. The flowers are echinacra. Your picture is a purple coneflower. You are right. Black-eyed Susans are in the same family.
