Last of the Summer Roses and Pattern Review

I made a wonderful connection the other day through my Butterfly Kisses Patterns. Her name is Kristy and she was so kind in her request for some help with one of my patterns. She wrote a beautiful critique about my patterns that I want to share with you here. Check out her blog.
My daughter is so fabulous behind the camera.She took these pictures that I wanted to share with you of my roses from my garden. They will be the last of the season. They are in my kitchen brightening my day as they greet me with their fragrance and color.




Flowers inspire me. I love the softness of the petals and the colors. I love the texture and the natural beauty. I need to stop more and smell the roses. I need to appreciate more, the beauties that I am surrounded by everyday. Tis the season to be busy. 
Happy Sewing and Creating!

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.







Vintage Sew Along Little Deer Block

There is nothing better than Christmas Sewing to get you in the holiday mood. The Vintage Christmas Book can be purchased through Fat Quarter Shop here All the adorable Christmas Blocks are designed by Lori Holt and you can see more of her work here.

This is a must have book in your library and there are so many projects and ideas to make...not only for the holidays but for year round quilts that can be used for any occasion.

I made the 6" Little Deer Block using Poppie Cottons first fabric line called Prairies Sisters which you can find here.

I wanted to use this cute deer block in a project bag.


All I did was add a 1" white border and a 2" colored border ...added a zipper to the top... some quilting and magically I have this cute project bag!

Please be sure to check out all the other designers here.
Happy Sewing!
