Utah Valley Quilt Guild Fair

Here's my booth at the Vendor Mall yesterday. I have to say I can't wait to do it again! My husband calls this my padded cell. Well if this is crazy, I'll take it. Everyone that came through loved what they saw. I had a few ladies call my quilts, "Just too stinkin' cute!" After it was all said and done, I was happy, but bone tired. Thanks to all who stopped by to say Hi!

Thanksgiving Skinnies... Hooray!!!!

Do you love them or what???!!! I have to tell ya'll when I first started drawing my turkey I went to my husband and asked, "What do ya think?" he said, "What's it supposed to be?" I said, "A turkey" he said, "Well it looks like a peacock." So I went back to the drawing board. It took me a little while before I came up with the turkey you see here. I love them and just laughed when I put on his rick rack legs. The Skinnies were a hit at the show.

Add a little spice to your life...

Pumpkin Spice that is. Finally you can see what I've been raving about all this time. This was also shown for the first time at the fair. I taught a class yesterday and showed the quilters there how I did my foundation piecing on "Pumpkin Spice". They were interested and liked what they saw. I have to say this is one of my favorites. I have always loved fall time and the colors that we are blessed to see. I made this whole quilt, back included with fabric from my stash. So go pull out all your yummy fall fabrics and make yours today. Corn Wagon Quilt Co. has this on display also.

Park Avenue

Now showing in all quilt shops! OK, maybe someday. Here it is "Park Avenue"!!!! It debuted yesterday at the Utah Valley Quilt Guild fair. Oh it was fun being there and meeting all the great quilters, designers and shop owners!! My daugther was there with me and we had a wonderful time. I was really good and only bought one piece of fabric. To see it in person stop on by Corn Wagon Quilt Company in Springville UT.

Time flies!!!

Hey out there! I realized that It has been over a week since I have posted. Time is flying at my house. Summer is happening too fast. I'm getting ready for the Utah Valley Quilt Guild fair, which is on the 21st. I have been printing tons of patterns and making sure I don't forget anything. 3 new patterns will be released that day. I can't wait!!! They will be posted on the 22nd. Also some exciting news, "Stitching It Up" in Cedar City is having my trunk show starting July 26. Super excited to be in their shop. I'm even making a "Very Merry" sample for them. It's out of the Basic Grey line "Fruitcake". Something great about "Very Merry", is that, you can use just about any fabric line and it will be gorgeous. I will post the "Fruitcake" one when I have it done. Well hope ya'll have a great weekend filled with family and fun. Until next time, busy, happy and sewing!

Lost Marbles gone baby size

I found my marbles! I just love to say that. My kids really think I've lost it. So what do ya think?? Cute huh? I just love it. I realized that I forgot to post this a few days ago. So here it is. The fabric line is "Love U' by Moda. Even though as stinkin' cute as it is, it wasn't moving to well ... so I decided that making a baby Lost Marbles would help it. The quilt is hanging up in Gracie Lou's quilt shop in Salem, Ut. The whole fabric line was directional prints. I think using the directional fabrics in all different directions is a fun way to use them.

Hope ya'll had a great 4th!

The 4th has come and gone by golly! I can't believe that we're in July already. Spent time with my family being outside and enjoy the nice warm weather. Had a great BBQ and even set off a few fireworks. I was able to get some quilting done too. It wouldn't be a complete week with out it, right? I got Pumpkin Spice back from Brandy, my quilter, she again did a great job! It's bound and ready for release at the July Quilt Fair. My Thanksgiving Skinnies are almost done and wait till you see the turkey! I'm so excited to post them. Keep in touch.

Very Merry Again ....

This fabric inspired me to create this quilt, 12 Days of Christmas, by Kate Spain of Moda. I was able to design it in a couple of hours and sewing it up went so fast I couldn't believe it. I love the poinsettias they just scream Christmas, which by the way my kids reminded me today it's only 5 months away. I also re-created the vines and holly leaves too. Like I said, I loved this quilt so much I had to make another. This quilt is quilted in green thread. I have say, that when Brandy told me green would look best, I was nervous, but I shall never doubt again. It is beautiful!!!! This quilt will be hanging in Gracie Lou's quilt shop in Salem, UT if ya'll happen to stop by.
Until next! Sewing and happy.

Very Merry is Here!!!!

Here it is! I got this back from Brandy this morning and I just LOVE it This is a shop sample for Cotton Shop in Provo. When I saw this fabric , Home for the Holidays, by Henry Glass, I knew I had to make Very Merry again. Tell me what you think. Thanks Brandy for doing another amazing job quilting!!!!
