2013 Spring Quilt Market in Portland

Here we are at the 2013 International Quilt Market in Portland, Oregon. I thought I'd share a portion of our booth each day and share with you the things we showcased at quilt market.

The front of the booth we featured Gingham. We launched the gingham style video ,view here, at schoolhouse. If you want a good laugh take a look at the video. The young boy is Cindy and Bret's son Eli and his friend Cy. The girls featured are my daughter Clancy and her friend Michelle along with their drill team mates. We had a lot of fun doing the video and have had a lot of fun seeing everyone's faces as they watch and listen to the fun words which were composed by Julia's son and his friend.

As you can see we have 3 different sizes in the gingham. Small, medium and large.

There are also 11 core colors.

All the projects and quilts are patterns that are available.

The quilt in the center is the free downloadable quilt that you can see here  from Riley Blake Designs.

This is our sneak peak window which was the first display as you walked in the building. I love how it turned out. It was only a vision until many hands helped bring this to light. It turned out darling!

I will post more pictures of our booth as the week goes on.

I hope to inspire you all to finish more sewing and quilting projects when you see our fun booth.

Happy Sewing!



  1. I'm loving that gray star quilt. Is there a pattern for that one? It is really special.

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.
