I know Easter is only a week away, but this fun project is quick and there is enough time to get it made to decorate. In this case, it is an adorable pillow with easter eggs made from your scraps. Trapunto stuffing gives it some extra dimension.
Anyway, here is a photo of the finished Easter pillow project, and use this link to see the complete instructions from Krista Moser: Click Here
This video caught my eye...such nice colors and it uses 1 jelly roll to make it. So, I jumped in and made one big block. There is a pattern available (link below), but it seemed pretty clear from the video so I used those instructions and it worked out great. It truly is a weekend quilt! Give it a try, I think it would be a nice quilt for any Jelly Roll you may have.

I love finding creative uses for my precious fabric scraps from other quilting projects, and I love tools that make my quilts and creative projects easier. I recently ordered a Creative Grids template set that makes 6 inch blocks. It can be made scrappy, or with the fabric of your choice.
The first video below shows how Laurie from SewVeryEasy uses the templates for a scrappy quilt and stores the fabric while collecting enough scraps for the quilt. The other video is the from Creative Grids, and the designer of this 4-part template set. The video shows completed quilts with a variety of designs, all made with the template set.
I loved this clear tutorial on how to quilt your quilt! She shows each step, with lots of tips to be a success. Even though I love to free motion quilt myself, plan to use this technique for community quilts or possible a gift quilt that needs to get done quickly. A nice tool to have in your back pocket!

The conversation in our Quilting Group is always interesting and varied, and this morning's group brought up the van Gogh exhibit coming to San Francisco later this month. A little like small children at play, we decided to share the Zoom screen and watch a video of the exhibit when it was in Paris last year. We thought everyone would enjoy it, so here you go...
