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

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.







Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

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.
