In The Meadow Blog Tour

                           

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
 In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy. 
The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...

I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks 
measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.


I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those 
into 2 1/2" squares...
the block center is 16 squares sewn 
together to create a 16-patch.


The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of 
16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners...
all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 

          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors. 
It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.

The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares. 
Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.


Check your local quilt stores for
In The Meadow 
It will be available this month!
Check out all of Shari's cute binding babies on her website.

Enjoy some sewing and petting fabric today!!!
Happy Sewing!

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.







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 …

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
