HMQS 2010

Riley Blake Designs sponsored the Fabric challenge for the HMQS show in Salt Lake City. We used "Sublime" designed by Doohikey Designs. Each contestant was to use a significant amount of 10 fabrics that we chose and 3 of their own if they wanted to.
This is a quilt I designed for Riley Blake Designs Eye Candy book and the HMQS show used it for one of their displays for the show. The pattern in the book is called "Bodacious Baskets"
The quilts that were entered into the contest were beautiful and were so hard to judge. The quilts were auctioned off by a live auctioneer and the money that was raised was donated to "PJ's Forgotten Children" They received about $5,000 for their non profit organization.

The following are only a few of my favorite quilts. There were many so I only picked a few.

The quilting on these quilts and the workmanship was just extraordinary.

Don't you just love this giraffe. I think he is fabulous!


This caribou is one of my favorites and the designer of sublime, Shari Butler, bought it at the auction. She loved it so much and just had to have it. We used it in our booth at quilt market in Minnesota to showcase Sublime.


Look at this incredible dragon reading. There was quite a bit of bidding for this quilt and I think it went for around $850.00. There were many who wanted it. It is an amazing quilt.

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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

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.

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
