The Dog Kennel Quilt Group

I always love to see quilts made from Riley Blake Designs fabric. This was All Star and who ever did this quilt did a fabulous job with their colors. This was an outdoor quilt show by the Dog Kennel Quilt Group. I had some friends invite me so I ducked out for a quick look to see what they had. Next year I will make more time to stay for lunch and their trunk show.

The embroidery work on this quilt caught my eye. Look at those cute snowmen scenes. I think it is just adorable. The black and white stripe border with the red stop border highlights all the great handwork in the center of this quilt.

Look how cute and festive this quilt is. You could name all those stockings after your children and grandchildren. The stockings are raw edge sewn which creates a fun texture for this quilt.

This quilt is a panel in the middle with the cute blocks as a border and the colors just sing fall is in the air. Again there is a cute stripe border.

Another very simple block with great fall colors. I love the scrappy border.

This quilt has been around forever and every time I see it I love it. I might have to make this quilt one day.

Look at all these cute projects. Don't they make you want to sew all day.

I spied another Riley Blake Designs fabric. This is Boo to You! 10" Squares placed on the diagonal creating this wonderful color arrangement of  black, green and orange.

To my friends Janene and Margaret this was the beginning of the Catty Quilters. They wondered how they could make a quilt group and we decided right there and then in the Dog Kennel Quilt Groups yard that they could be the Catty Quilters. Anyone who doesn't show up to quilt group will be talked about. This is an inside joke of course and only those who were there would understand. I will post later on the Catty Quilter Groups retreat that they just had.

1930's quilts were just displayed in the beautiful sunshine. It was a pleasure to walk through the yard and see everything that was displayed.

The beautiful pinks, browns and aquas set this quilt apart. The long arm quilting on it was beautiful.

What can I say about cherries. You can never have enough. I think the colors and design are just charming in this quilt.

More quilts. Looks like this was a group effort. One pattern and many different variations.

I love stars. Stars are always a classic block that I love year after year. I love the snappiness of these quilts. It gives them a real charm.

More and more quilts.

The fences were lined with these beautiful quilts. I only took pictures of about a third of them.

How clever is this. You can even display quilts around a trampoline. This really is what it will be like in quilting heaven.

Just Sew from Highland had a little table with some items they were selling. They had a really cute display.

As I was headed out from quilting heaven I spied this red and white quilt. It was the icing on the cake for me. I love it. Classy, clean and visually stunning with the red and white contrast.

I apologize for being slow to post this month. I am busy getting ready for quilt market. There is barely breathing room. I will post when I come up for breath.

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.
