That 30-foot Quilt!

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 […]

Over the last month, I’ve added some snacking to my quilt diet. All without adding a single extra calorie! “How do you do that?” you ask — well . . . My bestie, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, has these adorable template sets available that make the cutest little 4″ finished blocks! There are seven different template sets […]

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 […]

Spiked Punch

No, I’m not posting a holiday recipe! I’m showing you the progress I’m making on the Tula Pink Spiked Punch quilt I’m making for my daughter. When my daughter went to QuiltCon with me in February, she was amazed by all the “pretty and fun things” she was seeing. Pati, at Marcus Fabrics, let her […]

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I made a Halloween quilt over the weekend while I was at a retreat with some friends. Getting good pictures without My Cowboy’s help is nearly impossible, too. It’s a dreary, breezy day outside, and sort of misting. Perfect for Halloween, I guess, and at least it’s not cold! I had purchased this assortment of Halloween […]

I recently had the honor of quilting for my friend, Sandra. She made a Metro Rings quilt for her son and his new wife, as their wedding quilt. It’s made in 30s reproductions fabrics, and it is simply gorgeous! Sandra made this quilt for their bed, so she made the center portion of the quilt […]

A Lonely Lone Star

Next door to my favorite quilt shop, Sew Sweet Quilt Shop in Brunswick, Missouri, is an antique/gift shop called Plantation. I drop in there whenever I have enough time, just to check out the offerings, and I can usually find something I’d like to have, even if I don’t buy it. The last four times […]
