The Creative Connection Event Night 2

 Lyea, Cindy and I attending the conference. Lyea attended a class while Cindy and I sat on a panel for the pitch slam in the afternoon. Now we are headed to hear the keynote speakers and have dinner.
 Sitting at our table were these great young entrepreneurs from Princess Lasertron.Their names are Shannon, Megan and Emma. They are so delightful and so creative. It was so fun to meet them.

  
Holly Becker was one of the keynote speakers and has a blog called Decor8. She also has a book out called Decorate. She is so darling and spoke of her cute husband of 10 years in such a sweet endearing way. You couldn't help but love her.

Cristina Ferrare was another keynote speaker who also told her life story. She has a new cook book out called Bowl Full of Love. She also has a new cooking show on Opera Winfrey's new OWN. She was very inspiring and we had such an enjoyable evening.
Each time we went to dinner or lunch there were fabulous gifts for everyone at the table. Always great magazines and goodies. I wish it could be Christmas everyday. That is how we have felt each day here as we have received so many wonderful magazines and treats. Riley Blake Designs did sponsor the bag we all received this evening with some sparkle cotton from the Lost and Found collection and some crocheted flowers.

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.

There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. 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…
