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.


  1. What fabulous quilts! There is so much inspiration in these pictures. I love it!

  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!

  3. Thank you for the photos of the stunning quilts - I enjoyed it very much!

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns
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.

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.
