April 2011That Alpine Quilt Group

It is that time of month again when our group meets and shares quilts and then we have a fabulous trunk show. It's a standing joke that it puts me in the "mood." It always does. I am surrounded by the most incredibly talented women who share their love of quilting with each other.Then I want to go home and quilt.

The quilt above and below are both by my wonderfully talented friend Paula. The one above is a blackbird design quilt in a book called "Birds of a Feather." The one below is "Oh My Gosh" and that is exactly what it is. It is fabulous!
I apologize for not knowing everyone's name. The quilt below is beautiful.
We had several log cabin quilts. Aren't they great?


 I'm so proud of Cindy. This is her quilt she finished. The pattern is by Lori Holt of bee in my bonnnet. All those little aprons are hand appliquéd.


  Another great log cabin quilt.
 Look how great this quilt is appliquéd against the red background. It is a piece o' cake pattern. It turned out fabulous.



 This is Amber from Gigi's Thimble. She used a Riley Blake Designs line called Daydream by Cyndi Walker of Stitch Studio.
 Love the yellows and greens in this quilt.
Another new quilt by Gigi's Thimble.





 The following is the beginning of the trunk show with Marilyn and Connie. All I know about these ladies is that they are fabulous quilters who truly inspire.  They attend girl gang at Broadbents where flora met these ladies and invited them to come and share their talent.
































I hope you enjoyed all these wonderful quilts. There were more. It was a great trunk show. Hope this inspired you to quilt, sew, cook, clean, organize and just enjoy creating . I've got to get back to getting ready for quilt market. There is a lot to finish.

  2. Thanks for posting these. I know how much work it is to put a post like this together and I know how busy you are. I've missed quilts the last 3 times I think. Something has come up every night so it is bitter sweet for me to see these, knowing I missed opportunities to get to see them in person. Boy, I'm impressed with Cindy!

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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
