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!

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.

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

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.
