Bella Skirt

These are some baskets I've been working on for a while. Maybe a year. I don't know where the time goes. I'm up to 60. We'll see how many more I do. I'm trying to use all my scrap pink and red colored fabrics. I'll keep you posted on what I end up doing with them.

I was finally able to put my quilt on my frames and got it all quilted on Saturday. I finished binding it and will show it at That alpine Quilt Group at the end of the month. Maybe I'll have a good picture by then to show you.


I've been doing a photo shoot with my cute nieces who love posing for the camera. As you can see they are huge fans of cute girly things and they loved changing into the many outfits.

Of course, the poses are all their own and Randy and I have so much fun taking their pictures. They love climbing rocks and showing us how they can twirl and do all kinds of fun poses. We just laugh and have a great time.

Among all the cute photos to choose from this is the photo cover I chose. I just love how they're both holding hands . So sweet, so innocent. They're just adorable. If you can see the feather bracelet, I tried to let her know that it didn't match but there was no prying that from her wrist. So there it stays, in the picture. But who cares. It's the cute little faces and of course if you look beyond it's the cute skirt that you will love to make.

Among my cute things this week. My little dance students all got their new shoes and they can't help staring at their feet in the mirror when they dance.


I tried to show how little and cute the gillies (as we call them in Highland Dancing) are. They are about 5 inches in length. Just itty bitty cute. The ones on the right would be an average dance shoe size.

Look at those cute little feet. You should see them dance. They just love to dance and dance. They love to watch themselves in the mirror dance. Every time I think I'm ready to retire they remind me how much I love being in the studio and teaching.

Well onto many great things this week. There is a lot to be accomplished.

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.

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…
