Here is a look at the Andrea Victoria quilt that I just finished. You can download the free pattern at rileyblakedesigns.com under quilt projects. The name of this quilt is Cool Water. The colors were so much fun to work with.This is a look at summer song which can also be downloaded from the Riley Blake Designs web site and is called Summer Bouquet. I used the Summer Song Collection by My Mind's Eye.
Cindy and I had a chance to go to the big city of Ephraim and do a trunk show for Pie Plate Patterns Retreat. The women were so sweet and we had a lot of fun sharing with them what we do in the design world and I also shared some of my quilts. I'm showing one of my quilts that I challenged myself not to use polka dots. That's really hard to do if you love polka dots. This is a buggy barn quilt pattern and I only used stripes and plaids.
This is my second polka dot quilt in a different style where I used only polka dots in a snails trail pattern and then an appliqued border.
This was a block exchange in my quilt group many years ago where I chose to use only reds and whites. This is the bear paw block. I didn't like it when it was finished but had it quilted by a friend who made it come to life. I love it now

Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

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.
