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.







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.

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.
