preview 20 year quilt

Here is a sneak peak at the quilt I am finishing for "That Alpine Quilt Group" It is our 20 year anniversary of when we first started teaching each other to quilt. Several women were picked to design a quilt block that represented our 20 years together. I chose 20 blocks and have assembled them. I just need to put a border on. I think that will finish it. I'm designing the border right now and when I have that on the quilt I will show you. It's very nostalgic.


Wow! 20 years of quilting has just flown by!





I chose black as my background with varied reds, greens and pinks.

Can you see a hint of my cute sewing room in the window of my house that Nanette Merrill designed. I think it is so cute.


Up in the corner you can see a hint of the sewing machine I designed. When we first started meeting together at the little red church 20 years ago, we all brought our sewing machines. We really were the blind leading the blind when it came to quilting.



In the right hand corner you can see the little red church that we meet in designed by Janice of Broadbents. It is the cutest little red church.



This is a free quilt project I designed for Riley Blake Designs. You can download the pattern from the rileyblakedesigns.com website. The fabric line is Be Merry by My Mind's Eye. I never tire of this Christmas line.

This is a cute baby quilt for a friend of mine.
I did the long arm quilting for her. I think it's a sweet pattern.
Won't some little baby be so happy in this quilt.
Here is another cute quilt that was a collaborative effort by some neighbors who were finishing this baby quilt for a grandbaby for a very sick neighbor.

I did the long arm quilting and I think another little baby will stay warm under this blanket.

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…
