My adventures in Norway and Paris Day 3

Here I am finally getting to the last day of our trip to Norway and Paris...I have been so busy packing and getting ready for market I haven't had a spare minute until now...

bonjour...from Paris


Our first day in Paris...Cindy took me to her favorite cafe where we enjoyed crescents and hot chocolate and people watching...just divine!!!


Most of what I show and share here in Paris is from this things I saw that remind me of Paris...


I can't possibly share everything so I have just a few favorites to share...







This fountain was in a small park just around the corner from where we stayed...









my first try at a selfie...ha ha




Louvre





Versailles
















largest hydrangeas I have ever seen...


Eiffel Tower at night when it was sparkling...









yummiest lemon meringue pie we have ever tasted...


                 Notre Dame







left a lock on this bridge for Randy and I...not sure I'll ever find it again...






breakfast each morning in this 200 year old hotel...we think it was older than that...


last night was listening to this lady sing opera where the acoustics were perfect...memories!!


se la vie 

it was incredibly inspiring...until next time...

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.







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.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
