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.







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...

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.
