My Missionary

I wanted to share some fun pictures from Guadalupe in the West Indies. If you don't know where this is located, check out a map and look just above South America on the right hand side you will see the islands of the West Indies.
 My son is serving a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
These pictures are so beautiful. I'm sure they are so breath taking in person. It looks so lush and green. I just can't imagine how incredible this really is.
This is Talen (Elder Barney on the left) with his best friend from the same home town in Alpine, Utah. They grew up together and were called to the same mission.(That rarely happens) Matt (Elder Garlick on the right) left in January and Talen left in May. 
Matt surprised Talen by picking him up from the airport when he arrived. I can hardly imagine their excitement when they saw each other. They have been serving in the same area. They are not companions but they do see each other several times a week because they are in the same district.
The boys doing the Hakka. Talen played rugby for the United Team and won the US Championship during his senior year in high school. It was such a great highlight in his life. He is Polynesian from my dads side. He loves his Maori background and is so proud.
Look how cute he is. He is such a fantastic missionary. He loves the people and culture. It is such a joy and privilege to have a missionary and I am so proud of him.

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
