quilts for Haiti

Katie from an organization called Helping Hands came and spoke to our group last night at "That Alpine Quilt Group." We knew she was coming and organized to have these blankets made for the people of Haiti when she goes to visit in a few weeks. We had over 50 blankets that we were able to donate to her organization. That's why I love my group so much. They always come to the rescue when there is a need.


Katie also issued another challenge. She is headed to Peru to pick up her daughter from serving a mission and is taking a suitcase filled with white shirts and ties (things we would send to DI or throw out) We are going to see if we can fill her suitcase for her to take back to Peru.


The following are quilts that were show and tell from quilt group last night. This quilt is a Bunny Hill Design. She did a great job of coordinating the colors for this quilt.

Laurel has been collecting Kaffe Fausett prints for a while and finally put them together this fun colorful quilt.

How cute is this purse. Kim made it at a class at the American Quilting Retreat. I think it is fabulous.


This quilt is beautifully sewn and pieced. The colors work really well together and I like her light and dark combinations.


Look how cute this snowman quilt is. She took a Christmas tree skirt pattern and combined them to make this large quilt.




This darling baby quilt with the eyelet ruffle is so sweet and simple. She said she has made several with a gathered ruffle but decided this time, to save some time, and put gathered eyelet instead.

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
