July Alpine Quilt Group


We have the best show and tell at our quilt group. This is a quilt called "Going to Market" just finished and ready to be quilted by Bonnie Miles. I think that black and white stripe makes this quilt.
This is a fabulous quilt by Helen Butler. Her workmanship is exquisite.

This is the back of a quilt that flora did for her bedroom. It's a great fabric.

This is the front of the quilt. It's beautiful!


This is a beautiful quilt by Jill Finley. My picture doesn't do it justice from the side.

This is another one of Nanette's fantastic jelly roll quilts. Look at all those great vintage prints. She really does a great job of coordinating fun prints to give this wonderful vintage feel to her quilts.

This is one of Flora Gillman's fun quilts she did with Sandy Clop fabrics. A very simple but fun way to use a border print.

Now here begins the show that was done by American Quilting Store owner Amy. I couldn't take pictures of everything so I'm just showing a few of my favorites. This is one of her block of the month quilts.

Here's another block of the Month Quilt.


How cute is this! I Love it!

And still another one. Aren't they just so cute. It's no wonder she has about 500 people signing up for these block of the months. They're fabulous!


Look at all those cute little blocks on point. Don't these all just make you want to quilt?

Another fabulous quilt! Amy brought with her some of her cute daughters that are so great at helping Amy do the wonderful things she does.


Amy likes working with wool and has some great patterns using wool. I love this Halloween place mat or wall hanging.

Look at this great over sized Christmas tree skirt! A lot of times skirts are too small but this one is a nice size that you can still see, even with gifts on top of it.

How cute is this vintage quilt? Amy has a wonderful collection of vintage quilts.

Look at this farm quilt with all those cute animals! Don't all these cute quilts just get you in the mood for quilting. I love being inspired by all my friends who are so talented.

Now get to work everyone and start quilting! Can't wait to see what next month brings.

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

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.







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.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
