My adventures in Norway and Paris Day 2

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.

Sue Daley's quilt called "Marmalade" which she taught...isn't it fabulous!

The following are classes that were taught by Masako from Crib Quilt Designs...her work is beautiful!

Here are some of the lovely women from one of my classes...I loved teaching them and was amazed at how quickly they learn and what great handwork they do...

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.

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…
