Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 5

I am so excited to be part of this great magazine, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 5
My block is called "Five of Diamonds." The inspiration for this block comes from the beautiful solids from Riley Blake Designs. 

The block is on page 46. The magazine features many of my good friends in the quilting industry who are so talented.

I love the gray and pink together with a pop of white. The simplicity of the block allows the color to be showcased letting the 9-patch on point float in the middle.

I am so inspired by the use of solids and shades and how the colors work together to make a pleasing composition of colors and three dimensional design. I am working on revising an old quilt pattern called "Starry Starry Night" with solids. Here is a sneak peak. Look for it in the Riley Blake Design booth at International Quilt Market in Kansas city in a few weeks.

I am giving away 2 of these magazines, along with a fun surprise, so please leave your comments.

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'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…
