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.)

Love the red and yellow.



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.







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...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
