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.

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.

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…
