Rugby Tournament in St. George

We went to St. George for the weekend where my son played in Rugby tournaments all day Friday and Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day in St. George. Who would have ever guessed that early that morning we were shoveling a foot and a half of snow out of the driveway, only to drive 4 hours south to sunshine.

He played such a great game Friday that we didn't know he'd injured himself til we saw him again Saturday and ended up in the insta-care getting x-rays on his wrist. The good news is that his wrist isn't broken. There's just some bruising and he'll have to wear a brace until he can use it again. That's his first injury in 4 years. Hopefully his last.

I did work on some hand stitching on the drive down. I'll show that later on.I've been working on using the new trims that we have in the warehouse for Riley Blake Designs. I came up with a new pattern and used the pom poms as trim for the bottom of this cute skirt. They looked so adorable on my nieces. We did a photo shoot and the skirts were absolutely darling. It was the highlight of their weekend to be able to pose for the camera. I'm still deciding on which photo to use for the pattern cover. I'll show you when I've made my decision.


Here they are close up and we have so many fun colors to choose from.

I used our fabric line called Bloom and grow by My Mind's Eye and as you can see the colors are fun to work with.

This skirt has a cute little flower brooch that has instructions included in the pattern on how to make. This skirt will be called the Bella Skirt.

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.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
