Bar and Cake Mix Quilts

I am so happy to share that my Bar Quilt  is finished, all washed up and crinkled just the way I like my quilts. The quilt is over 100" wide and long and I thought I would never get the binding done with hand sewing.
 I want to show two quilts I quilted for my dear friend Sallie. The first one is a red, black and white quilt.
 The red makes the black and white fabrics pop.

The backing is a black and white fabric with red hearts. 
 This is a pink and green Cake Mix quilt.
 The pink and green border bring all the colors together.

The pink and green backing is not from the same collection as the layer cake and jellieroll, but a good match. 
 This is a Cake Mix quilt I made for myself and it is hanging in my quilt room on the wall. Although it is the same pattern, but with the different fabrics the two quilts do not look alike. And that is the fun of quilting, you can use the same pattern over and over and make it new each time by using different fabrics.
 Happy Quilting and Stay Warm,

These are just gorgeous quilts! I love your blog. My favorite bar and cake mix is the one on your quilt room wall. I have many questions now :)

You are doing the Postage Stamp Quilt Along? What is your flickr ID so I can follow?

Do you have a bar and cake mix pattern? Tutorial? Suggestions for either?

Thanks!
Melissa

Millie, I like all those quilts. I need to make a red, white and black quilt for my daughter's roommate, so you're giving me ideas. ;) I still like the Nostalgia quilt on your wall best, but the new one is gorgeous, too, and the already washed, crinkled and cuddly one is sure to be well-loved. I'm ready for some warmer weather, how about you?

100 inches by 100 inches, now that is a big quilt. It looks so warm and cozy! I just love your quilting. Your work is stunning. I have to ask the same questions as some of the others, what is a bar and cake mix quilt?

Geluk met nog 'n klaar kwilt. Dit voel altyd fantasties as jy een klaar maak.
Hou van die rooi, swart en wit kwilt, asook van jou cake mix kwilt. Lieflike kwiltwerk op die vriendin se kwilte!
Groete

That's it, what I was saying. The Bar Quilt. Love that but boy I bet that was a long haul on the binding. How pretty that black and white quilt is. Someone is going to be very very happy!!! The Cake Mix quilt with that nice backing - very nice choice and the quilting really makes it outstanding! Happy Quilting and you stay warm, too. *karendianne.
