Sewing Retreat

Every year the Village Dry Goods Quilting Store sponsors a trunk show and classes. I like to attend the trunk show and dinner at Maddox with my quilting friends. This year Sue Garman was to be the speaker and couldn't attend because her husband has been diagnosed with cancer. A friend came instead and did a fabulous job of showing the quilts and explaining the expertise behind her fabulous handwork.

The following are quilts from some of the ladies at Village Dry Goods and Sue.



This Christmas Quilt of Sue's is spectacular and each sashing block is different.
Her eye for detail is evident .
Everything is stitched by hand and so neat and tidy.




This is the border to the ship quilt which was my favorite.

Each block is a different ship with the flowers that represent the ships port.


Isn't this just incredible?

After our fun filled night of looking at Sue Garmen's Quilts we headed up to Park City where Cindy has a cabin. We stayed up until 4:30 in the morning sewing our little hearts out. We had 4 hours of sleep then headed up the mountain for a hike and back for breakfast. Yummy egg and veggie burritos and then more hours of sewing. We accomplished so much we've decided we need to do this quarterly.
This is the view out the back window of the cabin toward Park City. It's breathtaking. We had such a great time.

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
