Happy Pink Saturday!

On my blog, I very rarely venture away from crazy quilting. So read this post at your own risk because it isn't really a post on crazy quilting. I am not a big Halloween person, but I thought maybe it would be fun if a person could dress up as Marie Antoinette. She wore the most beautiful dresses!
Even Barbie has dressed up as Marie Antoinette! Most of the costumes that I found online were not really anything I would wear....so I guess it was just fun to think about. Who know's maybe I will make a crazy quilt Marie Antoinette something or other, that would be more my style!

Yesterday it was raining and it felt a little bit like fall. I don't like winter, cold weather etc. I am a summer/beach girl. It was getting me down, but I stitched up some flowers and it felt like spring!

Have a happy Pink Saturday and don't forget to visit our sponsor Beverly. You can click her icon at the top right.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! I have really had a good week, but it has kept me so busy that I didn't blog all week. If you follow my blog, you know that every year myself and 6 other very talented ladies make a quilt for the MCC sale in Hutchinson, KS. MCC stands for Mennonite Central Committee and they do a lot of wonderful things! They are known for helping with disaster relief and often are one of the first to arrive at the scene. This last year, we made a Valentine Crazy Quilt made from a pattern designed by Carole Samples. As I pieced the quilt, I made some changes from the original pattern but really I do love how it turned out.

Our group has met the wonderful person who bought the quilt. She is also a crazy quilter and we know it went to a really good home! She sent me the picture above and doesn't it just look perfect in her house!

I will be offering this quilt as a block of the month/online class starting this month. For more information on enrolling in this class you may go to my website, http://www.valeriebothell.com
I hope you have a good Pink Saturday and remember to visit Beverly our sponsor at www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com.
