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.







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…

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.
