Hello from the world of snow. We've had a ton of snow and ice. Our record so far this winter has been 22" in 24 hours. I love to see the trees covered in snow and all crystallized looking. So I am staying home and sewing and planning new quilts. I also got the cleaning bug, so I have been staying up late and going through boxes and cleaning out drawers. School is still out so kids are getting restless because it's just to stinking cold to be outside. I'm looking forward to the new year and what fun lies ahead. Be careful and safe as you celebrate. Blog to you soon. Until then be happy, life is a blessing.

Sassafras made by Krista
It's Sassafras! How cute is this??!! This was made by Krista, her very first quilt. She did a awesome job. She used the fabric line "Park Avenue" by Moda. Instead of blanket stitching around the flowers, she stitched 1/4 inch from the raw edge, that way when the quilt is washed, the edges will fray up a bit and add a nice soft touch to the quilt. I LOVE it!!! And of course Brandie did the quilting, which is always wonderful.

My new look...
Don't think you're in the wrong place...Hey there, it's me.. really! I changed things up a bit. Tell me what ya'll think. I need to get a new logo too, and this blog template inspired me, so I started here changing my blog. I hope you like it. I love it!! My logo is coming next. I should be sewing since I have a ton to do, but I thought well, I'll take a minute and do this. It's so much more cheery then the one I had before and right now with all this cold weather, cheery is good. Back to work. Have a fabulous weekend. Life is wonderful!

This little piggy is going to Market!!!
WoooHoo! I'm going to International Quilt Market in May 2011. Can you believe it!! I'm so excited I can't stand it. May will be here before I know it, there is so much to do to get ready. Luckily I have a great friend , Emily from Crazy Old Ladies, that is putting up with my billion and one questions. It's hard to sleep at night because I have so many ideas popping around in my head, like which new patterns do I do? what should my booth decoration look like? What am I going to make for dinner tomorrow? You know things like that. CRAZY!! I will tell you that I'm going to use the new line of fabric by Deb Strain called Fresh Flowers for a main part of my quilts at market. The line is absolutely awesome. To see it go to the Moda website and view the new fabrics coming in January.

Valentines Day !?!
Here it is!!! "Lots of Love ". What do ya'll think?? I used an older fabric line for this one, plus of course pieces from my stash. I found some of the fabrics at the Cotton Shop in Provo and ordered some on-line. This is a wall quilt that measures 30"x42". So this a perfect project, not too big and not too small. I do hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I know I did, I took a break from the crazy hectic life and enjoyed my family for the week. Well now I'm back in the saddle again. Watch for more new and exciting quilts coming soon... until then, happy holidays and happy sewing.

A Happy Thanksgiving to all..
Well, we're starting the week with a bang! We are under a blizzard warning starting in the morning. So we might have a white Thanksgiving. That's OK I love snow. It's great to sew and bake when it's snowing outside. So, I hope to do some baking and sewing before the weekend hits. Then enjoy my family and reflect on all the wonderful blessing that I have. With that, I wish you all the best for this week, please be safe when you travel and enjoy family and friends! Happy Thanksgiving to all.

It's the middle of the month already and I can't believe it. The year is just slipping by. Life has been insane. Halloween costumes are still not done, but they will be done by Saturday, I hope! The weather is getting cooler and I've gotten out the winter clothes. I LOVE this time of year, crazy with holidays and everything. The fall colors on our mountain are beautiful with all the oranges, yellows, and reds. I want to go out and buy more fall fabrics, but I don't have room for them, I may have to rent a space. Got to go sew. Keep in touch and watch for $5 Friday.

Friday is here...
Good morning to ya'll. Let's start the weekend right with a good sale. Christmas Sox is the $5 Friday pick for this week. It's a great quilt to use up scraps that you have from other Christmas projects, or go and buy one of the new lines that are out and have a ball. I'm not quilting today, I'm buying fabric for Halloween costumes. It's creeping around the corner quick. Well, have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

Farm Quiet Book
Oh my gosh!!! Is this the cutest thing ever??!! Sorry that wasn't so humble. I do have to say I did a pretty good job designing and making it. Don't you think?? I used a pair of old jeans for the base pages and wool felt for the letters. Scraps were used through out the whole book too. Each page has a different sensory item to feel. Take a look and tell me what you think.
The cow has button nostrils, I told you I love buttons. He also has a ribbon tail that has a knot on the end and a bell around his neck.
The sheep, I used a chenille fabric for a different feel.
The pig is made from a scrap of minkee fabric and she also has a ribbon tail, but don't you love the button nose!!
My horse has a rick-rack mane and a ribbon bridle. Adding a large piece of rick-rack, which I love too, was fun.
Spot the dog, has wool felt floppy ears so the kids
can lift them up. He is made out of wool felt too.
The sleepy owl is sitting on a pipe cleaner branch.
I took one chenille stick and twisted it to the size I needed and then tucked in the ends so there are no sharp edges. I used embroidery floss to hand sew this in place. It looks like the owls claws holding the branch.
The little fish pond was a fun thing to add. The blue is a tulle I found at a scrap book store in their trim area. I scrunched it up and sewed it in three areas to secure it to the page. The fish have seed bead eyes.
Finger puppets are a must for a quiet book. The three little chicks come out of the nest so the kids can pretend they are flying. That's the Farm Quiet book I hope you like it. Let me know.....

Color Quiet Book
Here's the Color Quiet book I made. I LOVE IT!! It as so much fun to use scraps of fabrics, trims, ribbon and buttons, I love buttons! I use buttons on almost all my scrapbook pages too. Anyway back on track. I used wool felt for the letters. I also zig-zagged around everything so any little hands that play with it won't rip things off. I tried to find trim that was different textures for added fun. On each page I used different shapes to help with shapes recognition too. All in all it was a very fun project and I hope you like it too.

Not sewing, but canning
Hey, out there! It's canning season. I have been making peach jam and loving it on my husband famous french toast. Salsa and pear jelly is next on the list. I canned so much fruit last year (245 quarts, 75 pints) that I don't have to much to do this year. Now I have more time to sew, which I can't wait to get in my sewing room and go crazy. Until next time, happy sewing!

Gone to Pieces..
Since I saw this fabric I had to do this quilt. I had the drawing in mind and I was waiting for the perfect fabric. Well, here it is, "Gone to Pieces". I tell you I couldn't sew fast enough to get it done. I love this quilt!!!! It's a great quilt for charm packs and layer cakes. I can't wait to make it again in some fun bright fabrics, or use my collection of Christmas fabrics. In fact I believe anything fabric you love would work. How fun would it be to make it all scrappy. Tell me what you think. Today I'm working on a snowman quilt...and can't wait to show you this too. Until next time, happy sewing and enjoy the fall.

What do ya'll think?? This was such a fun quilt to make and I love the colors. I was up at 6:30 in the morning to go buy this fabric. Corn Wagon Quilt Co, had a PJ day sale, so of course I was there with a whole lot of other crazy quilters. It was great. I just love quilting!!! This quilt was a little out of the box for me. It was fun to design and more fun when it was done. It finishes 64"x78", so it's great for a huge throw.

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.

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.

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!!!!

Grounded for sewing...
It's been crazy! Just like everyone else, I'm running a hundred miles an hour trying to get everything done. I decided I had to ground myself from sewing so I could clean house and do laundry. Yep, I did it. I got the house clean, laundry caught up, grocery shopping done, bedding changed, pack night attended and errands run. Yippe! That was earlier this week, so now I can report that I have made 2 other quilts. Very Merry, my latest creation is going to be quilted this week and ready to be posted right after. I did it in two different fabric lines, Kate Spain's, "12 days of Christmas" and Henry Glass line, "Home for the Holidays" I love them both. I will also be posting "Pumpkin Spice" my new fall one as soon as I get it back from the quilters.
Now I'm designing a Thanksgiving Skinnies. I hope to unveil them at the July Quilt Guild Fair in Provo on July 21st. Hope to see ya'll there. Until next time, happy and sewing (in a clean house)

Rough and Tumble, for the boys
For those wonderful little boys in our lives! After making Happily Ever After, I got a lot of request for a boy quilt. It took awhile for me to get the images just the way I wanted them, but I finally did. I really enjoy doing applique' because there are no boundries in what you can create.

Sassafras, don't ya'll just love it!!!
This quilt has been in my head for almost a year, can ya believe it! I finally found the fabrics I wanted to use and here is the finished product. Not to mention the quilting by Brandie, my amazing quilter. She echoed all the flowers so they really stand out. It's just gorgeous in person. To see it go to the Provo Cotton Shop and you will, it's there until the 28th of June. I loved making this one so much that I had to make another. I searched through my stash, and found an older Kansas Trouble line and did up a twin size Sassafras. It was fun to see the difference the fabrics make. Let me know what ya'll think!

Seasonal Skinnies 5 is here
I can't stop making these, I keep getting more and more ideas. I noticed that shamrocks were hard to find, I made some for everyone. Since I love Halloween, I find ways to make more things for it. The star is so versatile that I could redo it in Christmas colors, or Patriotic fabrics. I just love skinnies!

Here's one of the lastest - Twist & Turn
I just delivered this one to Cotton Shop for part of the trunk show that they are displaying for the annual Shop Hop. I just love the hot pink square in the middle of the quilt. I have made this quilt in 3 color ways and have loved them all. Today I'm trying to work on a new fall quilt that uses a foundation technique. I can't wait to get it done to show ya'll. I have also been re-visiting a few drawings of quilts I want to do too, we'll see what happens. Still quilting and happy! till next time...

Wow! Everyone is so awesome. Thanks to Crazy Old Ladies for directing ya'll here. Emily is great and helped me with updating my blog. I just got a quilt back from my quilter and it's perfect. As soon as I have it bound I will post it. It's black and white with a touch of pink. I think ya'll will like it. Thanks for the comments on Happily Ever After and Lost Marbles. I need to post Rough & Tumble the boy quilt so ya'll can see it too. Keep watching for more to come in the next couple of days. I'm getting ready for a trunk show for our states annual Shop Hop. It will be so cool. But for now eating, sleeping and sewing quilts -

Seasonal Skinnies 4
Get ready for summer. I can already feel the heat. I believe this set was the one that came together the fastest as far as fabrics and colors. Adding rickrack and buttons are always fun for me to do. I'll have to try some other types of trim on future Skinnies

Seasonal Skinnies 3
Set 3 is here. I made a pieced table runner that was a carrot, and let me tell you, this carrot was a lot more fun and easier. I also added some rick-rack to the strips for a little added color.
