Las Vegas

My mum loves Las Vegas. She wanted to drive her new convertible to Vegas and have a Grace Kelly experience. So My sister and daughter and I brought our hats and headed to Vegas.

As you can imagine it was quite the funny experience trying to enjoy being in 106 degree weather with the top down and fumes and diesel coming from all directions from the other cars. Needless to say we only lasted about 45 minutes.

 I wanted to share some of the things I love about Vegas that inspire me to design and create. Above those are rows and rows of beaded sequins drooping like lights and curtains coming from all directions. Beautiful!
 Mosaics that create shapes and colors.



 Lights in trees.

 Fancy Shaped lamp shades in beautiful color combinations. Look at those shapes.
 You know diamonds are a girls best friend. Look at those yellow diamonds.
 The following pictures are from Le Reve. An incredible Circus O' Le show.
 These were incredible flowers that dropped from the ceiling. It was a spectacular show.












 Of course you can't go to Vegas without seeing sporty cars.



 Fancy limousines for the rich and famous.


 This ceiling is incredible. The detail with no expense spared.



 This was the view from our hotel. Beautiful.

 Of course lunch at the Cheesecake Factory was a highlight. It was national cheesecake day so all cheesecakes were half price. We had to try several. They were yummy. You can probably look at this picture and gain weight.

 Gorgeous pink chandeliers out of glass.

 This was a fun store that used old sewing machines as their decor. It was fabulous. I had to take pictures and share how fun those old machines are and what a unique idea for decorating a clothing store.






Well on with the day. Happy sewing to everyone. Thanks for stopping by to see the things that inspire me and make me happy.

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.

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.
