HMQS in Salt Lake City 2012

Every year it is a great treat to go to the home quilters show in Salt Lake City. The quilt display is wonderful.  Our Alpine Quilt group was asked to participate in the show. There were so many great quilts. I am only going to show a few.This one is by Syd Haglund. This was a featured block of the month for our quilt group this year. It is a very clever game board quilt.

This quilt is machine pieced but hand stitched by Paula McKinlay. Look at those perfect feathered stars. The contrast of the pink and white is beautiful.

I really liked the look of this quilt and the layout of the blocks.

Love the black in this quilt contrasted with the bright colors, it really makes a statement.

 This is Cindy's quilt that she made from Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet pattern. How can you not fall in love with this adorable hand pieced quilt? There is so much work and many long plane trips and ball games in achieving this finished quilt.

Such a cute quilt! Look at those fun greens and reds!

I have this quilt sitting in a box. I need to get moving on it. Look how fabulous.the pattern is called "Oh My Gosh."

Look at all this beautiful needle turn applique. I just love it.

 This is my quilt and now it has a great story to go with it. I took it to a photo shoot on Saturday in Birdseye, which is about 1 hour from where I live. The day was very windy , rainy and cold but it had it's moments when it would calm down. I was trying to be quick and have the four quilts set in different areas of the ranch so that we could be quick about the photo shoot. The weather started getting bad so I gathered everything back into the car. We arrived home about 11 pm and my Randy was unloading the car and said there were only 3 quilts not 4. I began to be sick. It had been over 10 hours since our photo shoot and I was having night mares of my quilt flying off to no man's land, better yet being torn on one of the nails that protruded from the fence, or even being smeared in a cow-pie. We headed back to Birdseye and believe it or not my quilt was right where I left it. I have yet to see if it has any dirt on it but I have it back: a sweet tender mercy.

Love these color combinations.

 The workmanship on these quilts is so beautiful.

I am not sure but I think the following quilts were from the same pattern only each quilter used different fabrics. It is fun to see the variety and design changes depending on how color is used.

 The quilting on this quilt is spectacular.

 Look at this quilting.

This beautiful quilt is by Laurel in our Alpine quilt group. Her work is inspiring.

Believe it or not this is a quilt. Can you believe it?

Loved the modern look of this quilt.

I also have this Dear Jane quilt sitting in a box. I have got to work on this next.

I hope these beautiful quilts inspire you to quilt and design. I was truly awed by the beautiful workmanship. I only showed a small portion of what was there. If you live in the Salt Lake area you will not want to miss this next year. It gets better each year. It is always in May.

Happy Sewing

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 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…
