Welcome to the Norsk Quilte Festival.
I'll be sharing some of the fantastic quilting that I saw in Norway.


 This is the lecture evening where all the teachers from the festival share what they are teaching.
Cindy and I shared a display of quilts that we brought with us from Riley Blake Designs.
This is Sue Daley's quilt from her new book...soon to be released... Raspberry Tea...
focused on her new line of fabric called Raspberry Parlour.


 This is our Christmas line called Lost and Found Christmas designed by My Mind's Eye.
I designed this free quilt pattern called "Tis the Season" which you can find here.

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.

After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.
