Walker Lane Quilt Show

 This was my first year going with a few friends to see the Walker Lane Quilt Quilt Show.
Walker Lane is a beautiful hidden lane in the Holiday area in Salt Lake City. These quilters show their quilts every 2 years and from what I hear they only show what they have been working on. 
They don't show quilts that have been shown before.



As you can see the property for the location of this quilt show is worth seeing. There are animals in the background that add to the ambiance of the venue.

I always love a red and white quilt.



Another wonderful red and white quilt.


Inside this barn were quilts on 2 levels that were displayed beautifully.









































The yard was beautifully manicured. It was just lovely.




This quilt had wonderful workmanship and I loved how the black played out with these bright colors.


Very cute House block!




Notice all those half square triangles . Love the way the darks and lights within one color play off each other.


Love the color contrast and pattern that this quilt displays from a distance.




Best off all, doesn't this vintage car look great with a quilt. It was a fun show of quilts and put you in the mood to go and finish many of those unfinished quilts. Well it's back to sewing and finishing projects for market. Last day before heading to International Quilt Market.

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.






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.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
