Rasberry Kiss Pillow

I came across this pattern on the web and, in a spout of startitis, I made another pillow.
 The pattern is called Rasberry Kiss. I've made originally 25 blocks, but decided that this would get way too big for a pillow, so I picked out 16 blocks.The neutrals are mostly from a half jelly roll I picked up in the quilt shop in Frankfurt. I've found that I could get enough for 2 blocks from each stripe with just a little bit left over. Also, one 5 by 5 inch bit of the blue fabric is enough for two crosses.
The whole thing came together quickly.

After neglecting it for several months, I finally came back to the Tuly Pink City Sampler. I've finished the stripes section (block 56 ~ 70). I started thinking about a layout for the quilt, but am rather undecided at the moment.

Rainbow Star Pillow

Scraps. So many scraps.
I've made 6.5 inch blocks (though 6 inches would totally have been enough). Then I followed this tutorial on Happy Quilting for the Scrappy Rainbow Star. The only thing I changed (besides the size of the block - it's 18" / 45cm) was that I also used scraps for the background.

In the end I made a pillow.
It's very bright and colorful.
Lovin' it!
