Spring is here!

I could smell the grass being mowed yesterday and I got all excited!

I thought I would do a giveaway. I designed the quilt and have taught this at 
Pie Plate Patterns Quilt Retreat.

The giveaway will be a kit called Read-A-Thon and is valued at $60.

It is super easy and super fun! The instructions are simple to read.

The quilt uses the fabric Summer Breeze which is designed 
by Bella Blvd  for Riley Blake Designs.

1. Be a follower on my blog
2. Tell me your favorite thing about Springtime and Sewing!

The winner needs to express their passion about why they LOVE sewing and quilting or whatever your talent might be in the fabric world.

I can't wait to hear from you!

Happy Sewing!



  1. I love quilting and sewing because I love to make things for the babies in my life and watching them grow up with my love surrounding them! And I love spring because I live in an area where Summer is crazy hot, but Spring allows us to be outside in the beautiful weather.

  2. Here is just one example of why I love sewing. At a recent family gathering I saw one of my husband's second cousins. We seldom see each other but that night we had a chance to chat a bit and I really enjoyed it. A few days later I was still thinking of that and decided to send her a couple little things to let her know I was thinking of her. I made a quilted potholder and an infinity scarf, which are both quick little projects. I threw in a few handmade notecards and sent it all to her. A week later I got a gushing thank you note from her about how I had made her day and her week by sending the little gifts. Not long after that, my MIL talked about this cousin going on and on about this fabulous package I had sent to her. Just knowing that you can do something, even a small thing, to brighten someone's day is one of the best things about sewing!
    I follow your blog. Love the fabrics and quilt, thanks for the chance to win!

  3. What do I love about Springtime? EVERYTHING! Its always been my favorite season. . . the smells, sounds, sunshine, greenness, ambition, and freedom! Spring!! Yay! I heard the birds outside and boy does that get me excited! I get so ambitious!

    Sewing is what I love to do! I love the challenge, it's like putting a puzzle together. I like pushing myself to get better. I love making others happy with the things I've made. I LOVE to sew! and with 13 grandchildren (8 of which are girls) I keep pretty busy making all their gifts.

    Si, soy seguidora por GFC. Gracias.

  6. I love springtime sewing because the sun is shining, the birds are singing, longer days to get more sewing done. Fabrics in the stores are happier, people are happier and the ideas flow a lot better. :-)

  7. My favorite thing about Spring is the new blooms on the trees and the weather. I am a beginner when it comes to sewing but I love how relaxing it is and the feeling of accomplishment when I finish something new.

  8. One of my favorite things about Spring is the new life of everything. We love to go to Nurseries and choose plants to put in the ground. Sewing is such an important part of my life. It brings me joy just as the new plants do. I have been sewing since I was nine and feel so grateful for my mother and grandmother for passing this talent on to me.

  9. I love to see God's promise of new life springing from the ground! This year my tulips will have to push through a lot of snow, but they will soon brighten our yard..can't wait! I just really enjoy putting fabric together in a way that will make someone smile. What makes me really happy is that my daughters and daughter-in-law are starting to sew for their children and friends, and now they know they joy I felt when I made their baby blankets. I would like to follow your blog but I don't know how to do that.

  10. I love to make presents for newborns. And I love making bags. It's so much fun to create lovely softies.
    When I sew it feels very mindfull. Just being in my own world in the now.
    It's so magical to see a piece of fabric changing in a doll or softie or bag.

  11. Your design is lovely and looks like a fun project to make.

    What is my favorite thing about Springtime and Sewing? I love all the cheerful colors of Springtime and how fun it can be to pull that into my sewing projects. It might be a quilt or wearable, but it does seem that I enjoy working with spring fabrics and designs every Spring. Definitely puts a special rhythm into my sewing, to make my day fun.


  12. HI, these fabrics are so beautiful! My fabric choices change when spring flowers come out! So it light+bright hues in all my sewing+quilting! New placemats for the table are in order for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I love everything about sewing, except picking out the mistakes, lol, Spring is so full of joy and promises of beautiful things to come, the laughter of a child, the song of a bird, the buds on trees and flowers, the cool blue of the water in a pool, or the radiant colors of the fish in a soothing pond. All are inspirations for more sewing projects, and loved ones to share them with. Thanks for the chance to win. Blessing to you, Jackie

  14. I joined your blog today and I really enjoy it. Jackie

  15. Springtime and Sewing...hmmm, well, I love sewing all year but Spring is so inspiring. Every time I see a stand of daffodils or a tulip in bloom, a new quilt seems to form in my head! I found your blog from the Union Jack hop and I've added you to by Blog Lovin'. I can't wait to try those bags!

  16. I just started to follow today. Love spring with all the new flowers, trees when they get the new green leaves, birds chirp, hummingbirds coming to the feeder. Try a new quilt idea. The Union Jack hop so far has been great. thanks for the chance to win.

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
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.

Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
