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.

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







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.

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
