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, 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!

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

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.

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.

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.
