Fresh New Look, and Comments are now working!

Word has gotten back to me that people could not comment on my blog. After several attempts to solve this issue, I just decided it was time for a fresh new look. It is, as always still in development. But in the mean time, let me know what you think. Let's test out the comment section!

  3. Hi Jina,
    I saw the BOM project you've designed for That Alpine Quilt Group (linked over from Freda's Hive), and I REALLY like it a lot!! I'm not tooooo far behind yet, so I'm thinking about jumping in.
    I found where you have the monthly block instructions written up, but I'm wondering if there's a main/intro page? I'd like some idea of how big the finished quilt will be, and then I can guesstimate yardage. I love to work scrappy, but I don't have any idea how much to anticipate for this project. Also, are there going to be twelve different kinds of blocks in all, or less plus borders/finishing for one of the months? (Again, trying to develop a fabric plan.)
    Thanks ~ Jeanne

  4. Jeanne I'm so glad you are joining us in the BOM and no I do not have an intro page because when I presented it to my group I reserved the right to make a book in the future. As we get further into the months with this project you will see that there are up to 8 blocks in one month. You will probably want to get about 3 yards if you are using one background. If you are going scrappy I suggest getting fat quarters as you go along.(start with about 30 or 40 fat quarters) The quilt is approximately a king size finished with the fabric scraps used as the border. With out this scrappy border it is probably a queen size.

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns http://www.moosequilts.com/
I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

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.







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…
