Southern Women's Conference Day 3

When I think of Florida. This is what I think of: oranges and lemons.

 We stopped at a gas station and I just had to take some pictures of the citrus. If I could I would take home a lemon tree.

This looked like a lot of fun. It is a motorized parachute. He looked like he was having so much fun flying above the ocean.

 Look at this view. We had to stop in Jacksonville to visit Cindy's brother who lives here. Cindy went to visit and I visited the beach.
  It is about 80 degees and amazingly beautiful. I enjoyed about 2 hours of sunshine.
 Looking out from my room while blogging and working on work related emails and things.

 This hotel may be new but down the street are the quaintest little beach resort stores that have been around for a while.
 This bat mobile car was outside a little restaurant on the street corner. I had to take a picture. I just love it!
 Look how cool it is.
 There is nothing that makes me feel more at home than palm trees, sand and the ocean. I could stay here forever.
 The walk to the beach from the hotel. It is about 50 feet.

The back of the hotel.
 There is nothing much better than the feel of sand between my toes, even if it is only for a very small moment in time. Loving the sunshine. Loving the fresh air. Wherever you live make sure to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine whenever you can. It rejuvenates the soul. Believe me I need a lot of that.
Back to work. Sew. Create. Enjoy

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.

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.

Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
