January That Alpine Quilt Group

Here is a look at my 20 year quilt for "That alpine Quilt Group" I've finished the top and now need to quilt it. All the blocks are symbolic of different memories from my 20 years of quilting with my friends. I love how the bright colors come together and pop with the black background. It makes me happy when I see this quilt and memories flood my mind as I think of the many things I've learned with my quilting friends.
The following are quilts that were shown as show and tell.




This is a quilt using the Riley Blake Designs line "All Star" I think the sailboats turned out very cute for a little boy quilt.

This quilt was made in memory of a little boy who died at age 3 about 28 years ago and we all cried as she told us the story behind the memories of this quilt. She gave it to her in laws for Christmas.

Jodi Jorgensen is a fabulous quilter who loves curves. Look at this fun quilt.
A cute, very simple quilt to start the season of Valentines which happens to be one of my favorite holidays.
Now this quilt is incredible. Look at the red work.
It's a beautiful Christmas Quilt that everyone was oohing and ahhing over.
The border is 1/2" strips of red and white creating a checker board post. It is stunning.



This is another great Christmas Quilt.



Look how great this label on the back of this quilt is.


Well as you can see these are all fabulous quilts. These show and tells always put me in the mood. It's a little inside joke of my quilt group that "I'm in the mood." (That means to go and get started quilting. I can't sleep. I just want to create.)

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.







Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

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.
