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 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.







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
