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.

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.

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.
