Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7



Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7 
How fun are these blocks? 
If you haven't tried one yet...you 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 charm...how 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 spring is just around the corner...even though we have had more snow here in Utah.


A black and white striped binding grounded these 
spring colors and made them look just a little more sophisticated than they really are.


Thanks for stopping by today.

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
