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 says she’s reasonably sure the quilt is at least 100 years old! Over […]

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 […]
