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
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 your bag 
and I love how they keep the 
top of your bag open and accessible.


I did make my pockets larger and I placed 
one on each side...because hey, 
who doesn't need one more pocket 
and who says you can have too many??? Not me!


 I quilted the fabric first 
then I placed the Dresden Plate on the outside
of the bag and quilted on top of the block.


If you notice the modern flare Gerri has given 
her designs by giving them some texture and dimension. 
She's clever that way. 

I especially love the denim looking background 
on the main blue print
which I featured on the outside of this bag.


 On the back of the bag I cut some 2 1/2" squares and pieced them together. They add a bit of charm and 
show off some of the other pieces in this fabric line.

                            

   Notice all those blues, reds and creams next to each other....


You can find all these fabrics at your local quilt shop.
Penny Rose Fabrics is the Manufacture of these
gorgeous prints.


So ask your local quilt shop if they carry 
           Faded Memories

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.







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
