Winner of the Read-A-Thon Quilt Kit

I'm so excited to announce the winner of this beautiful spring quilt kit.
Lisa Marie wrote the most wonderful things about spring and why we sew.
Read below her comments.



Lisa Marie:

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!



Lisa, send me your address so I can mail this kit to you 
and you can start some spring sewing!

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.







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…
