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.







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...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. 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. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
