July Alpine Quilt Group

This was a fun quilt I worked on for my nephew that just got married. I had some left over kits with some of this fabric from Summer Song and worked up a quick pattern.

I cut 10" blocks and then sashed in between the blocks with 2 1/2" strips and 2 1/2" posts.


Threw a 6 1/2" border on to finish. I did a quick overall pattern with my long arm machine.


They are a darling couple. I'm sure Anthony and Ana will love it.

Our Alpine Quilt Group in July showcased Kaffe Fausett fabrics and quilts. We learned a lot about him as an artist and shared ideas on how to use his fabrics. I have been influenced so much by Kaffe. I love his color combinations and think he is very talented in so many different mediums of design.






The above quilt is the block challenge we are doing this year in our quilt group. Some one very ambitious has started to put this together with the bright colors. We have 2 groups, one being the brights and the other being the darker colors, as Flora calls them the sad blocks. The above blocks are the happy blocks.




I love this red work quilt. The pictures are simple yet striking because of the simplicity of the red and white color palette.

The quilt below is a quilt Cindy did for a friend of hers that just had a baby. It is all raw edge and is darling out of the fabric called Sweet Nothings from Zoe Pearn who is one of our Riley Blake Designers who lives in Australia.
I love the subtle colors of the quilt below made by Flora. I notice some Riley Blake Fabric from the Penny Lane collection.
The next few quilts are made by Janice.  They're fabulous.





I'm not sure who made all these quilts but I wanted to share how talented our quilt group is.






The Home Sweet Home quilt is made by Paula below. We made them together with Sherry and Janice many years ago. It's one of my favorite quilts. I love this quilt.
I hope you are all inspired to pick up one of your many sewing projects and finish. There is no better felling than finishing one of those projects. Happy Sewing!

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
