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.

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.

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 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...

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…
