That Alpine Quilt Group February


I always say "better late than never." So here I am at the beginning of April posting about February quilt group. I can blame some of it on Blogger.com, as they have been having some serious issues.  I thought about skipping over it but it was the fabulous Calli from make it do and her mum Leslie Ison. I hope you enjoy all the fun quilts they brought to show.











Love this quilt. This was taught at Ruby's Inn this year.




I am working on this quilt. I have over 200 baskets. I think it's about time to start putting those together. My baskets are all pink and red. Not one fabric is the same. This is a Black Bird Design pattern but I think I will change it up a little.












This was a super easy quilt that I did while at Ruby's Inn when Leslie taught. These are half square triangles with a circle appliqued in the middle.


That's a cute picture of Leslie showing her quilt with names on them. This is a signature quilt. She has a great story to tell about each quilt. I never tire of hearing about them.




Love this snowball quilt. Don't you enjoy seeing all the scrappy fabrics? They're timeless.



This following quilt has to be one of my favorites.














This is also on my bucket list of favorite quilts to make.









Leslie shared the following quote:
"We quilt for so many reasons-to escape the stresses of life, to create something beautiful to cherish, or to make a gift for future generations. Yet for me the greatest joy comes from those quiet moments every quilter knows. This is the time that is my own, when I can relax, reflect, and gently sew my memories into cloth." *Jinny Beyer
I hope you have been inspired like I was and that you are now in the mood to sew all day.

These quilts are a timeless treasure that will be admired by generations.

Get 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.







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 thought...how 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…
