Chocolates and Pinks

For Regina

My friend Regina lives in Germany and
loves to work in chocolate and pink American
Civil War reproduction fabrics.  When I saw
this display at my "home" shop ~ The Quilt
Shoppe in Anderson, Indiana, I immediately
thought of how much she would like it.

So Regina, here are a few little
ideas for inspiration.

This display looks like it was made just for you!

Imagine having all of these in your stash!


  1. Hello, I thank you so much for showing this!!! You are right: so many wonderful fabrics!! I think, pink and chocolate is a nice combination!!
    And I send many greetings from Berlin visiting my new born grandchild!! He's such a lovely little boy!!

  2. I am assuming the sewing machine colors are the way it came originally. I want one!

  3. This is funny.
    I have the exact same sewing machine, but in different colors. These have been sold in Germany by the brand name IDEAL instead of brother, but every detail is the same.
    I love this machine.

  4. Wow, you've got a great quilt shop! And that Brother machine is a keeper!
    best, nadia
