A Quilt Show To Remember

Suzanne, a friend of mine and a wonderful fabric buyer for The Quilting Cottage in American Fork, does a fabulous quilt show for The Thanksgiving Point Emporium, a beautiful shop in Lehi, Utah. The annual event is to celebrate the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Women come from all over to celebrate and share good food, recipes, door prizes, wonderful gifts and treasures. The women dress up in beautiful hats, jewelry, shoes, & dresses with ruffles and lace. They laugh, eat, and have fun.

Circling overhead and around the perimeter of the open ceiling in the Emporium is a large walkway. The impressive display of quilts were carefully hung from the top railing of the walkway over-looking the store area below.

In preparation for this event, I collected 30 quilts from some of my dear quilting friends, who dare trust me with their precious hand work. Many of my quilts that you see at were also part of the artistic display. The quilts represent a diverse difference in taste of color and pattern. Together they represent many years of wonderful quilting expertise.

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 

I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 

I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.
