Knock on Wood Blog Tour

Today is my turn on the blog tour for Deena Rutter's 
new fabric collection called "Knock on Wood."
The inspiration for this modern fabric collection 
was Deena's teenage boys.
I was super excited when Deena asked me 
to show these boy prints in a feminine way.

It was so hard to decide which prints to use. 
I chose 3 prints. 
The cream plus sign, the blue dot and the gray stripe.
Then I chose Billie's Best Dress Pattern

I love the low volume prints with the pop of blue.
The blue is mixed with a pinch of teal and a pinch of gray.
It has that deep dark ocean blue color that is just yummy:)

You can find the whole collection of fabrics 
here on Riley Blake Designs website.
Ask your local quilt shop if they carry "Knock on Wood" 
and they can show you the whole collection.

Knock on Wood by color Riley Blake

I love Amy from diaryofaquilter photo of the whole collection.
It gives a great feel for the colors and prints in this 
modern fabric collection.

My precious granddaughter, Nahla, 
loves to model!
She has the perfect moves 
and the looks on her face are priceless.

Isn't she so adorable!

The designs on these fabrics have a hand drawn look and feel.
They are small in scale and very easy to work with.

I added one more layer of underskirt 
to the Billie's Best Dress pattern so I could show off 
the cute stripe in this Knock on Wood collection.
The stripes are uneven and crooked, 
which give this design it's modern flare.

Up close you can see the funky, uneven plus sign design. 
It's my favorite piece in this collection.

This pattern has no buttons or zippers. 
It has a tie in the back. Super easy!

I enjoyed sharing my love of sewing and fabric!!!

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.
