A "SWEET" Sew & Tell!

For Sew & Tell Wednesday I wanted to share one of my fabulous finds in St. George. I found everything to make this cute quilt from the Sweet collection from Urban Chicks for Moda. This fabric is a follow up to their popular Swell line. It's full of fun colors, and inspired by vintage feed sacks. I'm loving all of the pieces. "Peeps" is the name of the bird fabric. Some of the other names are Sugar, Carnival and Sassy. This collection of roses and dots are bound to satisfy my ever demanding sweet tooth.(Not, I still need my chocolate!) Are you hungary yet?

I've already cut up my jelly roll, but I think you can see a sampling of all the fun fabrics in this line. Can't wait to share the finished project with you. It may take me awhile to do this quilt, there are 80 paper pieced fans in the quilt. It's been many years since I paper pieced but I'm up for the "SWEET" challenge.

This is the other fabric I found. It's by a local designer here in Utah County, it's from Back Porch Boutique by Bate & Taylor for Maywood Studios. The pattern is from the Crazy Old Ladies quilt patterns also here in the county. I've made several of thier quilt patterns, so easy and fun to make.

Judi Johnston( had something to share with us. She made these 2 cute quilts for her Ward Budget Fair. I didn't know they still let you hold those events. Good job Judi and thanks for sharing.

Kira also has some fun news to share with us. She's starting a new venture so check it out here to see what cute things she's whipping up. Here's a sample of her work. She's got some really cute things planned for this new little venture she's on.
Have you got anything you want to share, contact me and I'll get them posted for you. Happy Sewing ladies.

Let me explain. It wasn't a ward budget fair. It was a ward service auction. it was really fun at the beginning they had you answer some question they had wrote down. example. If your family has been to Disneyland give yourself 15points. How many children you have x 2 add 10 points and so on. So anyway with these points you can bid on what ever you want no money is exchanged.through out the night the auctioneer would let you add points for various reasons and when your points are gone it's over for you. Anyway the two quilts went for more than anything else that evening.
