Minnesota Spring Quilt Market 2015

Now that Quilt Market is behind me and I have had time to breathe and catch up I wanted to share some fun pictures from our Riley Blake Designs and Penny Rose Fabrics Booth...especially for those of you who aren't able to make it.

 Featured on the front of our booth is Summer Song2 by Zoe Pearn.
As you can see from the bright oranges, pinks, yellows and greens... this is a true Riley Blake icon fabric.


 This pillow is made from the butterfly block that is in the free quilt download for
Summer Song 2 called "Whisperings" click here to see.
 Novelty fabrics are a fun part of our designs that feature one of a kind prints.
These fabrics make fun dresses, quilts and projects.

  There was a section of our booth where we featured our artists fabrics and pattern collections.
 This is Simple Simon with their new line called "Four Corners."
This fabric collection has tribal, geometric prints with a hint of gold sparkle.


Samantha Walker showcased her "Rodeo Rider" with fun prints for both
 girls and boys in pinks and mints... blues, reds and browns.

Deena Rutter shows her "Happy Hauntings" with spooky, vintage icons for Halloween.


  "La Vie Boheme" by Amanda Herring for The Quilted Fish is filled with
 luscious reds, navy and teal colors...add in a hint of gold sparkle to some of the prints.

Carina Gardner shows her fabric line "Wiltshire Daisy" and Emily Taylor shows "Floribella." 
Both beautiful floral collections.


  Sue Daley exhibits her collection for Penny Rose Fabrics called "Forget me Not."

As you can see from Sue Daley's expertise in her English Paper Piecing
projects and quilts...she can work with the brights and the reproduction fabrics...
her work takes your breath away.


Riley Blake Designs has the most wonderful knit fabric.
 As you can see from the selection we have many fun colors and prints to choose from.
They are so easy to sew with and wash up beautifully!!!

 Play Ball was featured on the side of the booth.
It is designed by Lori Whitlock... a fun boy... sports fabric line.

Here you can see the booth from a distance with several fabric collections showcased.

Below is a dress from my pattern company called Butterfly Kisses.
The pattern is called "Billies Best Dress."
Moana made this dress from Santa Express.
It reminds me of something from "Frozen."
 Every little girl needs a blue Frozen dress.


One of the favorite features in our booth were these hang people by Anne Jacobson of Light Heart Art.
 Her detail in these cute people is extraordinary.
Each of the people on our team was highlighted here as a Halloween character.
They each had a little Riley Blake name tag.
The "Fly Away Dress" that we took to Quilt Con was featured again here in our booth.
The quilt behind is a butterfly quilt designed by Melissa Corry.

Sashing Stash was a new concept we launched designed by Eleanor Dugan.
 It is a set of designs with perfect measurements which can be cut apart and put together to create fabulous blocks and borders in geometric layouts to create complicated patterns.
 Check out their website.

I am in love with shades and solids from Riley Blake Designs...

Merry Matryoshka  designed by Carly Griffith is an absolutely delightful... happy Christmas Collection.

Postcards to Santa also includes some prints with gold sparkle...designed by My Minds' Eye...
Also featured is a new pattern from Butterfly Kisses called Sacha Skirt and Jacket. 

This fun, whimsical fabric line is called "Flutterberry" and is designed by Melly and Me.
The cute lady bugs you see on the shelf are the panel that goes with this line.

   The dress below is the "Mod Maxi" with the jacket from the Sacha Skirt and Jacket from Butterfly Kisses.

They're irresistible...a closer look at these cute lady bugs.

 These strawberries are taken from on line here .
  We used sizzix to cut the flowers and placed them as the leaves on top of the strawberries....

"Saltwater" by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches...
 includes cute seaside creatures and mermaids...such darling girl prints.

Who doesn't love great boy prints...Kelly Pannaci is the designer of this line called "Little Flyers."

Home Dec is a fun new medium of fabric we have been doing for about a year.
 The prints and colors are amazing. I love sewing with these wonderful textured fabrics.


Patty Young has some new Home Dec prints that come in 10 different colors.
They are so yummy! Patty has fabulous patterns available called Mod Kid.

 Extravaganza by Lila Tueller is bright and colorful and fabulous for clothing and quilts.

 Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet features her new line called "Modern Minis."

We also showcased Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Quilt so everyone could take their pictures by it.
The quilt was a show stopper!


This is a new pattern for Butterfly Kisses called "Super Star Quilt"
It will be available in early fall. It uses solids from Riley Blake Designs.

 Gold Sparkle brings bling and class to any project... we love it!!!

Here is sparkle cotton in red, white and blue.
It has a slight shimmer to it and is fun to use in quilts and of course
Frozen Dresses like the one below by Olive Ann Designs.

Tasha Horsley always brings a magical touch to her designs with hand drawn stories 
and bright vintage colors.
This line is called "Vintage Market."

The next few pictures are from the Penny Rose Fabrics booth which is a sister company 
to Riley Blake Designs... produces reproduction and historical prints.


Thanks for stopping by to have a quick look at Quilt Market in Minnesota.
I hope you are inspired to start a new project or finish an old one.

Happy Sewing!

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns
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.

Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

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.
