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
              by Gerri Robinson for Penny Rose Fabrics

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 …

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 thought...how 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…
