A Happy Accident

A week or so ago,  I mentioned that I was attending a Cheryl Arkison workshop called "Make Words, Not War".  As you may recall, I was looking for an extraordinary word to create something (i.e.  a wall-hanging or a pillow) to showcase in my quilting studio.  I wanted it to be motivating and beautiful; I wanted...

Make Words Not War

I often wonder how many bloggers engaging with people in the quilt-i-verse (or any other universe for that matter) reflect on their choice of  words used when telling their stories.  I know I do.  In fact I've talked about this in a small degree in an older post entitled The Name Game.  Check it out, should...

A Very Scary Quilt Block

Well here it is the middle of October.  Who knew that time would go by this fast. Not me for sure.   October is the month of ghosts and goblins and all kinds of spookily spectacular things.  Sew, it couldn't be more perfect that the next block in my Wicked and Wonderful PFMSQ is called "Hexing...

This is how our... Continue Reading →

Did you know I had a quilt pattern published in September, 2018.  Holy O My Goodness Gracie.  Her name is Tilt-a-Whirl.  You can find her in Issue 24 of Make Modern Magazine.... Continue Reading →

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This is my little star quilt.  It was born following a wonky star block swap back in early 2018. Swappers built star blocks like the beauty below in January and mailed them out in February.  Then we waited with bated breath (what is bated breath and it is related in some way to fish bait?...

Lets all eat Cake…

This is my birthday month and guess what,  I don't feel any older than I did last month, or the month before, or even the year before that. On September 4, I blew out an awesome number of candles, which means I get my wish. Do you want to know what I wished for?  Of... Continue Reading →
