What are you working on this week?

Here is a sneak peak at what I am working on for quilt market coming very soon. (We leave in about 10 days.) Oh boy, that reminds me of all the work I have left to do. This is a flannel quilt I have put together with some strike offs. This line of fabric is called Hooty Hoot Kangaroo and doesn't reach the quilt stores until July.
Isn't it darling. It's a boy line with 3 different colorways and I think it is going to sell very well at quilt market. It is designed by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake Designs.
This is a cute skirt I made with a flower brooch out of Boo to You! This line will be in stores in May. It is designed by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. This is out of my pattern line called Butterfly Kisses and is called the Snowflake Skirt.
This is another very cute Snowflake Skirt out of Felicity designed by Emily Taylor for Riley Blake Designs.
I'll try to remember to keep taking pictures and show you all the fun things we have getting ready for market. There will be a few surprises I will keep and show after market. Happy sewing!

  1. What am I working on this week.........I am just getting back to quilting after a short time off. I decided that I needed to start fresh with something new (I have oodles of things started and not finished, but thats okay). A couple of days ago, I designed a quilt and basically that is what I am working on. I love the Hooty Hoot Kangaroo (the name too)fabric. Some little boy will love it. Where did you find that fat rick-rack? I assume it is rick-rack.... Sharie - Moss Bluff

Love the red and yellow.



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.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
