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.

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.

Glamper-licious Fabric Tour

Glamper-licious I'm always so excited to be part of a fabric tour.
These fabrics scream of luscious reds, delicate pinks,  spring greens and summer aquas.            This collection is designed by Samantha Walker.

As soon as I received the fabric I
 got right to work in cutting up all the wonderful cherries and cute glampers so I could sew them into  a Dresden quilt block.

Once the blocks were completed and pieced together...

 the quilt was sent to Connie so she could work 
her quilting magic.
The binding is my favorite ending to the quilting  journey and I love nothing better than  using Shari's Binding Babies to prepare  my binding for the scallop edge on this quilt.
The colors and design of this quilt look so summery.  It reminded me of packing a basket filled  with fruit and sandwiches for a fun picnic.

The red and white check along with the  cherries are my favorite designs in this
Glamper-licious collection.
Once the blocks were sewn together and 
assembled with the scrappy sashing,
