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.







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.

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…
