The end of March

Well Spring is springing here in Utah very slowly. It helps to have signs inside the house to remind me of what's happening outside with the new blossoms and baby buds, even though yesterday it was snowing. But, today it looks like we are going to have sunshine. I've learned to appreciate any sunshine we get this time of year. Don't you love to see new baby chicks and birds nest. They are reminders to me of spring.
Another little egg pincushion. I think I'm obsessed with pin cushions. I keep making them because they're so cute. They're like fabric, you can never have enough.
I thought I'd show you one of my favorite Easter Quilts that I just got out to display for Easter. Ignore the wrinkles. It's all hand appliqued and hand quilted.
This is a Bunny Hills Design called Rabbits Prefer chocolate.
If you look close you can see I used ribbon to embellish the rabbits necks along with some embroidery.
Don't you love the scalloped edge.
This quilt makes me happy when I get it out each year. I think it is a very fun design by Bunny Hill.
This is the label on the back of the quilt. I'm big on labeling quilts. After a while you forget when you made your quilt. So make sure you sign and date everything.

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.
