Look at what greeted me on Easter morning! New snow. It's supposed to be spring but we keep getting snow and it is so cold. I have to say it was gone by the afternoon but it was still cold.
The Easter Bunny knows that we love our mint truffle eggs for Easter and she didn't let us down or is the Easter bunny a he?

I made this very simple french toast souffle the night before and put it in the oven this morning and everyone enjoyed it.
I'll share the recipe. 1 loaf of french bread cut into slices and placed in a greased baking dish 9 x 13. In a blender mix 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 8 eggs, 2/3 cup half and half and 1 1/2 cups milk. Blend and pour over bread. Chill overnight in the refrigerator. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with 6 tablespoons melted butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Enjoy!
This is a sneak peek of a new Riley Blake Designs fabric line called Andrea Victoria.
It's ready and waiting on my quilting frames and I should get to it real quick. I'll take a picture when I'm finished.

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…
