July 2014 That Alpine Quilt Group

Wow! What a fabulous trunk show last night at Quilt Group.
You can't believe the talented people.
I wanted to go home and quilt all night...I was so inspired by these fabulous designs, colors and intricacy of the beautiful art these women have created!!!


 

This quilt was made from scraps from some women in Ghana. This lady was serving a mission there and collected these scraps and made this Oh My Gosh Quilt!
Isn't it amazing!!!
The colors were spectacular. What a treasure!!!


This is another one of the ones she made from Yoyo's



This is a quilt Paula had been working on that was inspired by the trunk show for tonight given by Ann Lewis...as you will see her quilts are beautiful.
I love the red and green combinations in this quilt.


A fun geometric block.


A pineapple quilt that was made from beautiful purple and green scraps.




This is the start of Ann Lewis' trunk show. 

                                         

                                                          I love this quilt!!!


Ann is crazy addicted to cutting. She cuts a bazillion pieces and then begins to sew. She loves cutting and sewing blocks but rarely finishes. You can't believe the amazing work... 


These are her spot quilts. On the back she has large dots but the purpose is to make eye spy quilts. He squares are 2" cut. They are for her grandchildren that she doesn't have... 
they are to spot the object...cute idea...




This is her low volume quilt with all the pieces having a white background. It's a beautiful modern quilt effect...


Happy Sewing!!!

  1. I always love seeing quilts from That Alpine Group. I remember seeing my first Ohmygosh quilt made by one of your members. I have had it on my "someday" list for years, and every time I see it, wish I could just stop everything and start working on it. Thanks for sharing Jina.

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
