Valentines Day

I wanted to show a few of the fun Valentine's treats I found. Below are chocolate heart pretzels.

The theme for our Valentine dinner was Italian. We had lasagne and a few favorite treats.

Yummy cupcakes were a hit!

A preview of our Valentine table before it becomes a feeding frenzy for all invited to dinner.
The pens are for the cards that are passed around at the table. We each write what we love about those at the dinner table. Even those guests who are invited get a special card with thoughts and feelings of love from all of us. It's fun to pull out those cards and read them during the year to remind you how much you are appreciated and loved.
The hearts had a little gift inside and the fabric hearts are to hang somewhere to see and remember that someone loves you. I feel like we need those constant reminders in this crazy, hurried world we live in.

Tim Tams are a favorite this year because a sweet friend told me where I could buy some. They are Australian. I didn't know you could buy them here.
It's almost time to dig in and eat. We need to light the candles.
Here's a look at pink pancakes and strawberries for Valentine's morning. Don't forget the whipped cream.
Of course, my favorite boy loves eggs on his pancakes. I think it's disgusting but he sure loves them.
Tierani and Tahmor eating tim tams at work celebrating a friends good fortune.
Look how cute this Valentine basket is that she brought filled with tim tam's and hot chocolate. As you can see you have to bite either side of the tim tam and then slurp the hot chocolate through until the whole cookie begins to melt. Let's just say it's not for the faint of heart.
A quick look at a few things I've been working on. Rainy Days and Mondays.

Wheels. This pattern is from the book I published with Riley Blake Designs.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. It's a busy week and I can't wait to share my night from the American Quilting Retreat this week.

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

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
