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.

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.







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.
