Dear Jane

These are the last 3 blocks from my Dear Jane Quilt. I've been working on them for 2 years and I have just accomplished one of my New Year' s Resolutions which is to finish the blocks. Yeh! They are finally completed and I feel like I've just completed a quilting marathon. This project was a challenge and I feel like I acquired a lot of very tedious, very detailed, quilting skills. It feels so great to have these finished. Here they are!


Here's a look at each one. They really are so cute.


I've been labeling each block after they are completed so that I will be able to assemble them quickly without looking up the name of each one.
This has to be one of my favorites. Look at that cute center!
If anyone out there is attempting to start this project or in the middle of finishing, it's the story behind this quilt that makes it so great so enjoy the journey! Now that I'm finished I can say that I truly have enjoyed the journey and will continue to enjoy the journey of assembling this Dear Jane Quilt. The following are pictures from my quilt group that were a show and tell from those who have finished the Dear Jane. They're inspiring so I thought I'd share.

This red and white quilt is actually machine embroidered not pieced.



Aren't they incredible? If you look closely you can see the detail of each block. It's amazing!

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.
