First Day of Spring

Well I hear it's the first day of spring.( yesterday technically but I was too busy working to enjoy until today) It was a beautiful day here today and I went for a walk to enjoy the sunshine. It's so fun to see the first signs of spring with the little green shoots springing up every where. I walked through my garden to say hi to all the little blooms that I can see poking their heads through the dirt. It makes me happy.

I designed this pin cushion as a class that I taught at the warehouse for Riley Blake Designs. I used our new fabric Andrea Victoria. I shared the idea with our store owners hoping to give them some fun ideas that they can use as mini classes for their stores.
I also invited the Quilted Fish who taught a very fun notebook cover, Mary's cottage Quilts who taught a table runner that is posted on our Cutting Corners College on our Riley Blake Designs home page, and also Doohikey Designs who did a hot pad demonstration. It was very successful and I think everyone had fun.

This is our new fabric Rainy Days and Mondays by Melimba and Beccabury. It is such a fun fabric to work with and makes me happy to see it this time of year. The colors turned our cheery and delightful and the fabric is flying out the door. The pattern for this quilt is from the free quilt project patterns that I design for Riley Blake Designs and can be downloaded from our web site under Quilt Projects.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and that we stop to see the small blossoms peeking their way through the dreary grass and tree limbs. Go for a walk and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

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.

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.
