American Quilting Retreat

Cindy and I were invited to speak at the American Quilting Retreat this week. It was so much fun to see a lot of my friends and to see what a quilting retreat is all about. Amy does a fabulous job of taking care of all these women. We each received this darling pin cushion that her and her daughters made.
We then received a little treat bag with a little notepad, lotion, tape measure and of course, chocolate.
The following are some really cute quilts from the trunk show that followed Cindy and I. This is a fun quilt with skate boards on that a lady did for her grandson.
Look at those cute puppies.
I love these witches boots.


Lori Holt's cute sampler quilt.
There are 120 fabrics in this quilt and 80 pumpkin blocks.
The following are quilts that the American Quilting ladies put together to show everyone what kind of quilts they could make out of the Riley Blake Fabric called Bloom and Grow.




Inside those cute baskets are yoyos.

This is the beginning of the cute pictures I took of all my friends and their fun pin cushions, treats and projects that they took to the retreat.
Lori and Kim looked like they were having the time of their life.








I thought I'd died and gone to heaven to see all these women and their machines in one room.

Amy looks a little fried but she was working so hard to keep everyone happy and was such a great hostess.
A few pictures from the Riley Blake Designs table.
We shared how we manufactured fabric and how we work with artists to design our fabric. It really was a fun evening.

  1. Wow. So fun Jina. I missed so much of this retreat. But I did get to see my good friends, whom you've got pictured here. I really like the skateboard quilt. My son would LOVE that. I think I'm going to start collecting fabrics he'd like.

Love the red and yellow.



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.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
