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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
