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.







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…
