News From the Studio (and Ranch), Episode 1599

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 […]

So how about those stellar numbers? Did you manage to make a lot of blocks in June? I got to go to a retreat last weekend, and I put on a veritable piecing marathon! I had several projects completely cut out and partially pieced, and I was on a mission to finish those tops. I […]

Studio Organizing Challenge #3

It’s been awhile since I posted about any organizing I’ve been doing, but over the last couple weeks, I’ve worked a bit on whittling down my mess some more; decluttering, organizing, and putting things away, or sorting things out to get rid of.

News From the Studio, Episode 1593
