Sewing Retreat

Every year the Village Dry Goods Quilting Store sponsors a trunk show and classes. I like to attend the trunk show and dinner at Maddox with my quilting friends. This year Sue Garman was to be the speaker and couldn't attend because her husband has been diagnosed with cancer. A friend came instead and did a fabulous job of showing the quilts and explaining the expertise behind her fabulous handwork.

The following are quilts from some of the ladies at Village Dry Goods and Sue.



This Christmas Quilt of Sue's is spectacular and each sashing block is different.
Her eye for detail is evident .
Everything is stitched by hand and so neat and tidy.




This is the border to the ship quilt which was my favorite.

Each block is a different ship with the flowers that represent the ships port.


Isn't this just incredible?

After our fun filled night of looking at Sue Garmen's Quilts we headed up to Park City where Cindy has a cabin. We stayed up until 4:30 in the morning sewing our little hearts out. We had 4 hours of sleep then headed up the mountain for a hike and back for breakfast. Yummy egg and veggie burritos and then more hours of sewing. We accomplished so much we've decided we need to do this quarterly.
This is the view out the back window of the cabin toward Park City. It's breathtaking. We had such a great time.

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.

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.

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.

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…
