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 . . .

It’s called “A Garden for All Seasons”, and it’s the creation of my bestie, Victoria Findlay Wolfe. It’s a quilt she made that is NINE feet tall by THIRTY feet wide! It’s so big I couldn’t get it all in one picture: It hung at the AQS Show in Paducah back in April, and standing […]

Mystery Quilt Reveal

This past year, my sister and I hosted a mystery quilt for the members of our quilt guild, the Pecan Valley Quilt Guild, in Brunswick, Missouri. We used a pattern by Jessie Fincham called Scrappy Irish Chain. I asked Jessie if we could use her pattern, and she graciously agreed, so I broke it down […]

Quilts, Goats, and Other Stuff

I’ve been chipping away at lots of projects, and a few of them finally got to the completed stage this week. I feel like I’ve been sewing in slow motion, so to have a few things done and off my plate feels pretty good! I finished this flower pillow that I started a couple years […]

Scrap Quilt Progress

I have my first finish of the year! It only took me six days. I finished the cow quilt I started in the Leni Wiener workshop back in October. All I had left to do was put the cows on their background, then get it quilted and bound. It didn’t take near as long as […]
