Fall Quilt Market Houston 2011 Day 5

This is the cutest mini bed. You can't appreciate it's cuteness from this picture. It is a doll bed using The Quilted Fish fabric collection called Sugar and Spice. It is adorable.

This was my favorite find of the show. It is by Sue Daley. Her pattern company is based in Australia and is called Patchwork with Busyfingers. The center hexagons are 1/2". The outside hexagons are 1". It is a spectacular quilt. I picked up a couple of her patterns and plan on doing them on some long business trips.
I had to take a picture of this cute outfit out of Hoo's in the Forest by Doohikey Designs. This was a great new designer who uses knits. Her clothing was very cute.
Another fabulous quilt in the Leicen booth.
There's cute Norma with her new pattern company called Geoff's Moms Quilts. They were busy. You can see on her right the quilt she designed around the story of her life. Their quilts and projects are inspiring.


Another fellow Utah pattern designer Amy from Under the Garden Moon Patterns.
was busy also.
How cute is the above dress out of Lost and Found? Serendipity is another favorite designer that I think has fabulous patterns for clothing and bags.


Who can forget how fabulous Kaffe Fausett is. One of my favorites. Look at those colors!

These are some antique quilts that I fell in love with. Again you cannot appreciate the size of these squares. They are 1" squares.
All these quilts have block measurements of about 1". Just fabulous!




Now this was a spectacular quilt. Museum worthy. Those are all yoyos about the size of a dime. You can see my dime I placed on the table beside the yoyo to show the comparison.
 I hope you can see the design that these yoyos make. It really is such a great quilt. I loved the red yoyos that outlined the center design. I hope this inspires you to continue creating and quilting. I appreciate the workmanship and thought that goes into each of these quilts, fabrics and designs.
Happy sewing and creating!

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.

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. 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…
