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.







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.

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.
