Two More Weeks!

That’s all the time you have left to get to Winterset, Iowa, and see Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Retrospective exhibit: “Playing with Purpose”. It’s at the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa, right now, and it’s a wonderful exhibit. I really wanted to go see it while it was hanging because I quilted several of her […]

Baby Baby!

Baby Baby!

I have another new pattern out! This one is called “Baby Baby!”, and it’s a very quick and easy baby quilt that you can personalize with a bit of easy appliqué. There are two versions, and I’m calling them the Girl version and the Boy version, altho they’re completely interchangeable. And you can also choose […]

June 350 Blocks Report

Well, I didn’t manage to keep a list of blocks for June, either, so I’m pulling from my really poor memory to come up with the blocks I made this past month. I went to a retreat, and several sew days, so I did get some sewing done. As usual, there are some blocks I […]

May 350 Blocks Report

Well, May is already over. I started a list of the blocks I was making this month, to try and keep better track, and then I lost the list, so maybe I can try again next month to keep better track, and hopefully, I haven’t forgotten to include the ones I’ve worked on. Worse than […]

Reworking Vintage

Reworking Vintage

I have quite a collection of vintage quilt tops and vintage orphan blocks. One of my favorite quilting pastimes is reworking them into new finished quilts. I don’t get to spend as much time at it as I’d like, but every now and then, I put in some effort on it. I’m teaching at Arrow […]

April 350 Blocks Report

What a crazy month! (And we had some very strange weather to go along with it!) As usual, I didn’t keep real good track of what I was working on — I just had my nose to the grindstone, churning stuff out because of deadlines — and most of that was at the longarm, not […]

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. […]

Handstitching Progress

We’re nearly done with the first quarter of 2018 — how can that be already? And . . . how is it not really spring yet? I’m ready to open up the house and let some fresh warm spring air in — my living room smells like a barn! It’s been storming off and on […]
