2018 Mystery Quilt Reveal

Our guild’s mystery quilt from last year went over so well, they wanted to do another one this year. So my sister and I once again hosted a mystery quilt for the Pecan Valley Quilt Guild members over the last few months. I finished my binding 2 hours before the meeting, in my usual style. […]

This Week

We’re past Hump Day already, and I don’t feel like I’ve done one single productive thing yet this week. Fortunately, I was at my guild’s spring retreat last weekend at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s fabulous retreat center, where I did move a few projects forward with some uninterrupted sewing time. We got to watch the […]

Starting and Finishing

Starting and Finishing

It appears that for every quilt I finish (even if it’s for a customer), I start another one — or two! I’m sure none of you ever do that, do you? Last fall when I went on a road trip to a quilt show with my pal, Linda, we went to a JoAnn’s store, which […]

QuiltCon 2018

The Modern Quilt Guild’s annual quilt show, QuiltCon, is going on right now in Pasadena, CA. Since I was just in California over Thanksgiving, I opted not to go back again this soon, and as it turns out, that’s a good thing, since I have these two to bottle feed and entertain every few hours. […]

Imogene’s Vintage Quilt

Imogene’s Vintage Quilt

Last summer, I worked on restoring a vintage quilt top for my friend, Imogene. This quilt was made by Imogene’s great-aunt, Emma Salyer (Mrs. James Salyer), when she was young, and Aunt Emma gave it to Imogene as an unquilted top. Imogene says she’s reasonably sure the quilt is at least 100 years old! Over […]

My Yo-Yo Quilt

One of the projects I put on my list this year is my Yo-Yo quilt. I’m planning to do a lot of handwork this year, and my Yo-Yo quilt is a big hand stitching project that I’ve had going on for years. I’ve decided that this is the year I’d like to try and finish […]

Spotted. Out and About.

I’ve gone to several quilt shows this year, and readers and customers have also been kind enough to send photos, and some of my fellow guild members have shown me things they’ve done . . . And there have been a lot of quilts made from my patterns floating around in the wild! I’m so […]

The Witching Hour Is Close At Hand

Halloween is fast approaching, so it’s high time you were getting your Halloween stitching on, don’t you think? I’m here today to tempt you with a few projects . . . Last year for Halloween I made this quilt: It’s made from my AmpersAnd pattern, and instead of appliquéing the ampersand on it, I drew […]

Fall Into Autumn

Fall Into Autumn

For the last week, we’ve had temps in the high 80s and 90s, with heat indices of 100 degrees or more, but in spite of that, the first day of fall has come and gone! This is my favorite time of year. It’s a great time to stitch up some new fall projects, so to get […]

Hexactly Quilt

I’d like to show you a quilt I made a few months ago for Dear Stella to hang in their booth at Quilt Market. It’s called the Hexactly quilt, and it’s designed by Sam Hunter of Hunters Design Studio. Isn’t this gorgeous?! The folks at Dear Stella had me make the quilt using their Chroma […]
