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

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 →

Three Little Birds for my quilt.

Its September, AKA the best month of the year, AKA the start of back to school season, AKA my birthday its essential that this month's blocks really sing.  Bob Marley's smash hit song "Three Little Birds" positively fits that bill.
