I've been putting up a few new patterns on my pinterest board and will be working to add a border board and block board for more custom jobs in the next week or two. 

Currently running a special of ALL Edge to Edge designs are $.01 an inch.  This is a great deal and won't last forever, so take advantage while you can! 
I am offering a 72 hour turnaround on edge to edge designed quilts.
Quilts with edge to edge design but separate border design are $.015 for up to 2 borders. 
Custom quilting begins at $.02 an inch and goes up depending on complexity. 
I have batting available for $7 a yard.
I will ship quilts back - and only charge actual shipping costs. 
No hidden costs!  Quilting, Batting, and tax if you live in Utah are the only charges on the invoice.

Happy Birthday Mom and Dad

This week is always a busy week in April - as we celebrate my mom's birthday on the 17th and my dad's birthday on the 20th. 

This year my mom had a big one - the BIG 60.  My siblings and I decided to send her for a little spa day and it was so much to surprise her with it.  My mom is so giving and helps us all so much - this day was longtime coming and very much deserved.  She is such a great mom and the best grandma to our kids.  We are lucky to have her. 

Jim's birthday is tomorrow and we are taking him breakfast at the Iceburg his favorite spot in the world.  My dad is so loving, kind, hard working, honest - the best dad a girl could ever ask for.

I am lucky to have such great parents and to have them be such a big part of my life and lives of my kids.

Love you both - Happy Birthday!

It's been awhile! I have a goal this week - and only 1 goal.  To lose weight!  I'm going to be so hungry and so onary by Friday - but I'm going to do it!

Tuesday - Basalmic Grilled chicken w/ fruit
Wednesday - Chicken Broccoli Casserole w/grapes
Thursday - Bean Burritos w/edamame
Friday - Turkey Meatballs w/pineapple

For the rest of my meals - I'm focusing on fruit and protein - like edamame, hummas, cottage cheese w/tomatoes.  Maybe throw in a little oatmeal to feel full!

Goal is to eat good - and get active this week!

WIP Wednesdays

We have been hit HARD with a horrible flu this last week.  It has lingered and has not been fun.  Felt the weekend was a bit wasted as laid around and watched a lot of TV.

I had purchased and watched the Craftsy class Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple by Camille Roskelley which is so worth the money.  Great tips and tricks.  New patterns, great ideas.  Very helpful.  One of the patterns is some ideas on half squared triangles - and I feel in love with the look and with the ideas.

So I got a couple of Marmalade charm packs and couple of white charm packs - put Jake to work drawing some lines down the middle (that was a fun exercise) and made about 84 half square triangle blocks.  

I spent Friday night trimming them up - and playing with some ideas.

Loving the star look - I think a whole quilt in these would be to die for!

I have been wanting to make a quilt using this block for a long time - so I decided on a couple more and came up with this....

I love how this is turning out!  I can't decide whether to keep going and make it bigger or stick with a baby sized quilt.  I have a few showers coming up - thinking this could be a cute baby quilt. 

What do you think?

Client Quilts

 This was a cute quilt done out of Grace fabrics.  My client wanted the dresses and the sashing outlined and the borders done in an all over design.  

I was excited to try out a new (to me) design called Anne's Favorite Flower.  I don't even have it listed yet as one of my patterns I offer - but I love how it turned out!

You can see it best in the photo below.  This is a great pattern and is very striking on a quilt. 

The next 3 quilts are from my cute client Rinda.  She comes up by with some of the cutest quilts - hard to give them back to her.  

This quilt was just center fabric surrounded by charm pack squares and some cute appliqué.  She wanted the Tumbling Bears and Hearts pattern.  I hadn't used this pattern before and thought it turned out cute.  So sweet for a baby blanket.  Hard to see the detail in the pictures - but fun pattern!

The next quilt I think is the disappearing nine patch pattern.  She chose the pattern Flower Panto for her design.  I hadn't used it before, and to be honest wasn't that excited as I didn't love the look of it.  

Once it started quilting - I changed my story fast!  I love how it turned out.  Love the detailed flowers.  I really enjoy this process of quilting - and opening my eyes to patterns I wouldn't normally chose myself.  Love a surprise like this!
The back looked so good!

And her last one - I love this x's and o's pattern.  I really need to make one for me.  She chose Candyland which is one of my favorites!

Rinda uses minky on the back of a lot of her quilts and I love how it looks!  They all turned out so well.  

Remember - I'm currently offering all my edge to edge patterns for $.01 an inch - so if you're interested email me at to get scheduled.  My current turn around time is 72 hours so take advantage before prices increase.
