February That Alpine Quilt Group

I'm really feeling proud of myself for getting back in the saddle and blogging again. What better way to begin the year than to show my quilt group and their fantastic quilts and ideas.


 Here is a beautiful quilt by Flora Gillman. I love her color choices and the applique on the birds is gorgeous!


So talk about Kaffe Fausett Love! This is such an amazing quilt. Look at the wonderful checkerboard border. It's just exquisite. The colors are divine!


The girl who did this quilt has only been quilting about six  months. These are large half square triangles but the best part is how she set them off by using the black and white polka dot. It makes such a statement.


Look at this cute idea for a boy. All the ties are from brothers and dads of a cute little grandson of Wendy Castle, who is getting baptized. She wanted to do something special for him on his eight birthday! Don't you love it!


This is one of Marian Gallians quilts from a Fons and Porter magazine edition. It was made from Riley Blake Designs One for he Boys fabric line.


This was another show and tell. Forgive me for not remembering whose it was but I took a picture because I thought the pattern and colors were unique.


Paula McKinley taught this class at Ruby's Inn and one her students finished this quilt and brought it to show.


Another fun Valentines quilt. It looks orange but the colors are actually reds and pinks. Super easy pattern but a great way to showcase the fabric.


Then begins our trunk show with the infamous Amy Smart of A Diary of a Quilter. She is adored by many. You can check out her blog here.


Here are just a few of her quilts as she tells a story of her quilting journey. She has a wonderful story of handing down the quilting bug through the generations from mother to daughter. She does it in such a humble, beautiful way and shares her knowledge of how she because addicted.


A few antique finds and treasures that she has inherited along the way.


One of her many quilts.


Her love of Sandy Clop quilts.


Sandy Clop scrap love again.


A fun quilt using Seaside of October Afternoon for Riley Blake Designs.

Love this modern take on half square triangles.


Showing her love of vintage sheets.


Dresden plate using stripes. Showcases this pattern nicely.


A fun Halloween scrappy quilt.


Well there were many more beautiful projects and quilts but I had to duck out because I was having a coughing fit. Still fighting this cold.

On to sewing and creating! Keep up the good work.

Happy Sewing!

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns http://www.moosequilts.com/
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.







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…
