I am so excited to be part of Fabric Fest 2013. 
Riley Blake Designs has a lot of fun things in store for you. 
My name is Jina Barney and I have been playing with fabric and crafts my whole life. I love it all! I've been quilting for over 25 years and was addicted the minute I started petting all my cute fat quarters that I would collect and purchase just because... I will be involved with many things at Fabric Fest, one of which will be teaching a class showing my newest pattern addition called "Fine Feathered Friends". 


There are 3 Fine Feathered Friends that I need to introduce you to. 
First is Elvis. 
He's cool and suave with a very hip style of his own. 

 
                                             
                                    Second is Henrietta. As you can see she has quite the attitude.
                                             She loves high fashion and requires constant attention.

     

                                 Third is Lewy. He is sweet and respectable among the girls.


This quilt will be available as a kit with the fabrics and embellishments  needed to finish the quilt top. We will learn how to piece quickly and efficiently. I'll also teach several applique methods and you can choose your favorite. This pattern will be a nice addition to my Butterfly Kisses Pattern.

                                                                                      
  
For the next several weeks follow the blogs from various designers who will be teaching at Fabric Fest. They will share the fun classes and techniques they will be teaching. There is something for everyone.
                                               
                              Come join the fun and come play with us in Las Vegas this September 9-12.

                                                                     Happy 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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

Goldilocks Fabric Tour

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
