Basket of Love Quilt Pattern


This is a new pattern using Sublime designed by Doohikey Designs. I love the fabric. It's so unique. You can buy this kit at The Quilting Cottage in American Fork, Utah.


I used velvet ric rac by Riley Blake Designs on the center of the basket handle.


Here is the center of the block close up. The button in the middle is a self covered button. It you haven't used those self covered buttons. Try them. They are very easy to make. This is a view of the whole quilt. The scalloped corners make this quilt charming and are very easy using the instructions and template in the pattern. The center of the quilt is ironed on and appliqued using a button hole stitch but you could also needle turn applique if you love to do that.



Here is a sneak peak at finishing the border for my 20 year quilt project. I have it ready to quilt. I think I'll use black thread and do some detailed quilting. I'm really loving how these bright colors came together. It reminds me of the bright, cheery days that quilting for the last 20 years has brought to my life.

This is a cute baby quilt I just finished doing the quilting for. She's a young mother who is having her second baby.

I think this block is very cute and the fabrics she picked are adorable. She did a great job.


This is a quilt I pieced and quilted for the warehouse at Riley Blake Designs out of Just Dreamy. This was our first quilt line for Riley Blake Designs. We have the last few pieces in stock. The line has done very well for us.

Just Dreamy was designed by My Mind's Eye.


The pattern to this quilt is in the Eye Candy book I wrote and designed for Riley Blake Designs. The pattern is "Twilight." It was made out of Andrea Victoria. This fabric line should be here in a few weeks.


I am headed at about 6 in the morning to LA to attend the CHA show. I'm very excited and will take lots of pictures to post next week. This is the quilt market for the scrap booking industry. I'm excited to be inspired and see lots of great ideas.

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.
