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.

Vintage Sew Along Little Deer Block

There is nothing better than Christmas Sewing to get you in the holiday mood. The Vintage Christmas Book can be purchased through Fat Quarter Shop here All the adorable Christmas Blocks are designed by Lori Holt and you can see more of her work here.

This is a must have book in your library and there are so many projects and ideas to make...not only for the holidays but for year round quilts that can be used for any occasion.

I made the 6" Little Deer Block using Poppie Cottons first fabric line called Prairies Sisters which you can find here.

I wanted to use this cute deer block in a project bag.

All I did was add a 1" white border and a 2" colored border ...added a zipper to the top... some quilting and magically I have this cute project bag!

Please be sure to check out all the other designers here.
Happy Sewing!

The method of quilt as you go is just that...  you sew a piece onto your batting and  then stitch every 1/4" you a finished  quilted product.

I did some echo quilting around the rose and then  add…
