Alpine Days 2010

Here they are! Paula and Sherry doing what they do best at Alpine Days. They run the quilt show and as you will see it is fabulous. There is so much talent in this little area.
Fresh strawberries for the happy quilters to offset hunger pains from a long day of visiting with all those wonderful Alpine people.

First before I show the Alpine Quilts I wanted to show a table runner that I helped my Clancy do for one of her favorite teachers at Timberline. This teacher made such a difference in her life that I felt like she really needed to know how much she was appreciated and loved.

This is a wonderful quilt of color by Jody Jorgensen.

This beautiful quilt is one of Nanette Merrills from Freda's Hive.

Me and all the girls at the quilt show visiting and enjoying time together. Sherry, Paula, Jody, Me and Moana.

A young boy about 10 was looking at the quilts with his mother and he turned to her and said " Mom, you have got to start practicing sewing. I want one of these quilts. There are so many here that I really like." (He was serious.)So to all you quilters out there. Keep practicing!

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.
