Ya Ya Sisterhood

Ya Ya Sisterhood at Thanksgiving point is a really fun girls night out. If you haven't been you need to go next year around the 3rd week in October. There's great food, gifts, and lots of fun women dressed in great hats and dresses. My friend Suzanne Lawrence does a quilt show during this event. It helps to warm the night. I gather from my friends a few quilts to add to the ambiance of the evening.
Look at these great costumes! Aren't they just darling?

On the left is Paula McKinnley's Noah's Ark quilt and on the right is a quilt by Annette Flygare.

Don't you just love her hat? She won the best hat award of the night.
On the left is a quilt by Moana Burgess and on the right is Jodi Jorgensen's Star Quilt.
Both quilts are from the Riley Blake Collection All Star and pieced by Moana Burgess. I machine quilted them for her.




The picture is a little dark but on the left you can see part of my #2 Polka dot Quilt and on the right is Sherry Boren's Home Sweet Home Quilt.


More cute costumes and hats.

Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

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

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.
