Spelling Bee Sew Along



I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along by Lori Holt of Bee 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 
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 make something fun once I finish my other letters for the Spelling Bee Blog Tour.


"o" is for opal, outgoing, optimistic, orange, octopus, oxygen, ocean and owl.


It symbolizes a circle which represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement.
***
 I like to think of a circle as never ending LOVE!


Now to get busy on my other blocks!

Happy Sewing!

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.

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…
