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.







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
