Wistful Winds Blog Tour


What is not to LOVE about these gorgeous colors 
and beautiful designs by 
Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs.
I am thrilled to be part of the
Wistful Winds Blog Tour!


I Love the bright yellows, hot pinks, vibrant reds, 
calming aquas and warm oranges with a hint of green.
They are yummy and inspire one to create!!!


It was so hard to choose a project but 
Shari requested something very girly.
As you know I Love everything about girls and 
especially pretty things that girls wear!

The triangle pouch above was inspired by a spoonful of sugar 
and you can find their tutorial here.
I made this cute triangle pouch for "lala's" lipstick.


This is the "Sunny Dress" pattern by my 
pattern company called Butterfly Kisses
I Love this pattern because it can 
showcase many colors and prints from the 
Wistful Winds 
fabric collection.


When I designed this pinafore pattern many years ago 
I needed something that would showcase a variety of fabrics.
This pattern worked perfectly:)


My cute grand daughter is modeling this sweet pinafore... 
she can't wait to eat her cupcake.


Shari's colors and designs from Wistful Winds 
blend together so well. 
There are beautiful florals, sweet dots, 
bold stripes,tone on tone patterns, 
and a few geometric prints
 to help give this fabric line a modern vibe.


You can see we were lucky to capture one of those beautiful 
fall days up American Fork Canyon in Utah.


The sun is still shining and there is a slight breeze in the air.

                   

There is nothing better than a picnic up the 
canyon...listening to the running water 
and taking in the gorgeous scenery.


         Thank you so much for joining me in celebrating the
debut of Wistful Winds.
You can purchase all these beautiful fabrics from
your local quilt store.
You can also view the whole fabric line 
here at Riley Blake Designs.
Thank you Shari for letting me be part of your 
beautiful story!!!

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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

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...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
