November That Alpine Quilt Group and a few projects

A little jacket I made for Nahla out of scraps from Delighted! I used to make jackets like this all the time for my girls when they were little. They would wear them with cute skirts I made and then colored stockings and boots with a huge bow or hat on their head. Little girls are so fun to dress.


The next are pictures from our quilt group in November. I know I am a little behind but there are some great quilts that I thought you would like to see.









This is a quilt design by Syd Haglund. She has made one for each of her children. This is for her youngest and is centered around a story her daughter wrote and pictures she drew as a child. It is all about dogs.


The colors are spectacular in this quilt. A lot of the applique is wool.


You can see the letter H to the right of the quilt which is the first letter of her name.



I remember this quilt being designed for a baby and both parents are at school at MIT or some kind of school that has modern buildings and architecture. This quilt was to represent the architecture.






Most of the following quilts are designed by Geoff's Moms Quilts which is a pattern company with 2 wonderful women at the head, Norma Whaley and Joyce Weeks


I love these quilts designs and color combinations.















This is the free pattern for Scoot I designed for Riley Blake Designs. Deena Rutter is the designer of the fabric. It is such a cute collection for boys. The designs are retro with fun trains, helicopters and toys.




Another look at the man quilt I made for Randy. It is a10" squares with 3" corners for any of you who love doing snowball blocks. Super easy and super fun. The fabric line is called Back Country by The Paper Loft.



Lots of Happy Quilting and many tiny stitches this week.

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

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.







Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

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…
