I chose the pattern from Heather Mulder Peterson's book Livin' Large. The pattern is Pretty In Pink. Heather actually has a recent post where she made the quilt in a Christmas Seasonal color palette. Go check it out when you get a chance as it is lovely!
Here is the front of the quilt I made. I used fabric mainly from the Cotton Blossoms line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
I had the long-arm quilter use a swirly pattern for the quilting in a red/brick color that matched the red in the fabric:
I pieced the back as well to give it some design flair!
A close up of the back of the quilt: Here it is laid out beneath our tree in the family room. While the colors do lend towards the winter/Christmas season, it is not meant as a seasonal quilt. But it does look nice and cozy beneath the Christmas tree!
All folded and ready to give to my G'ma for Christmas! The colors in this quilt are exactly what I have in my home: earthy and warm! Good thing I have enough fabric to make another one since I loved this color combination so much! For that quilt I plan to use the same fabrics but use the pattern A Piece of Cake by Camille Roskelley.
I had plenty of links above so you can go and appreciate the works of the women who inspired me to make this quilt, both by pattern and fabric!

These are a sampling of some projects I have in the works. I am spending the rest of my free time snuggling with my kids and hubby so blogging continues to be sporadic (at best)!
I wish you a happy, healthy, and above all joyful season!

The fabric used is Gobble, Gobble by Sandy Gervais for Moda.
The pattern is for the Simple Little Table Runner by Camille Roskelley and came from the Moda Bake Shop. She has a great tutorial on the site for it!

Here is a picture of the back: The quilting was done in designs of bats, witches, ghosts, the moon, black cats, etc...all Halloween-y things!
Below is a close up of the quilting:
It was such a fun little project. I highly recommend it. I did the binding on this one all with my sewing machine. I started a table runner with this same pattern using Gobble, Gobble fabric by Sandy Gervais for Moda, but I still lack like a foot on the binding where I am hand sewing it around to the back....I just need to get on it! I will post pictures of it when I have it completed.
