Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

Glamper-licious Fabric Tour

Glamper-licious I'm always so excited to be part of a fabric tour.
These fabrics scream of luscious reds, delicate pinks,  spring greens and summer aquas.            This collection is designed by Samantha Walker.

As soon as I received the fabric I
 got right to work in cutting up all the wonderful cherries and cute glampers so I could sew them into  a Dresden quilt block.

Once the blocks were completed and pieced together...

 the quilt was sent to Connie so she could work 
her quilting magic.
The binding is my favorite ending to the quilting  journey and I love nothing better than  using Shari's Binding Babies to prepare  my binding for the scallop edge on this quilt.
The colors and design of this quilt look so summery.  It reminded me of packing a basket filled  with fruit and sandwiches for a fun picnic.

The red and white check along with the  cherries are my favorite designs in this
Glamper-licious collection.
Once the blocks were sewn together and 
assembled with the scrappy sashing, 
it seem…

Faded Memories Blog Tour

I feel privileged to be part of  Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs fabric tour.  When I met Gerri and saw her quilt designs and fabrics  I knew right away that she was a keeper.  She is incredibly talented and her expertise shines  in the selection of color, texture and illustration of this fabric collection called  Faded Memories

Gerri has designed some beautiful quilts  to go with this collection.  She has a book available now called "Casual Classic Quilts" It's filled with 9 beautiful quilt designs.

 With luscious reds, country blues, deep navy blues, and some creams and beige's mixed in...  how can you not want to make quilt blocks.

I could not resist making the traditional Dresden Plate block. This quilt block is addictive.

 I used a pattern you can download from Craftsy called  "The Retreat Bag" by Janelle MacKay
Super easy! Super fun!

You can purchase the wire frames from your  local quilt store. Don't be intimidated...they are super easy  to insert in the top of y…

Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7

Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7 
How fun are these blocks? 
If you haven't tried one need to. 
Lori Holt shows how simple and fun these Sweetie Pie 
blocks can be. Check out her blog here
where you can read about Lori's tips and tricks to making these 
fabulous dresdan plate quilt blocks.

I have especially enjoyed seeing all the 
different color palettes that everyone has chosen.
The consensus is that everyone is in the mood for spring colors 
...with the yummy fruit shapes in the center which give this block its can you not love the cuteness!

I decided to make a mini quilt with my 
Sweetie Pie block.

Don't you just love the blueberries!!!
I do and that's why I chose this block.

I love the detail Lori adds to her blocks. Of course, I had to add those same little details by doing some embroidery on my blueberries, leaves and stems.  The stitching gives everything an added charm factor  that goes along with everything Lori does so well.

These colors made me feel like…
