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’s Vintage Quilt

Last summer, I worked on restoring a vintage quilt top for my friend, Imogene.

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

News From the Ranch, Episode 1640

It’s been awhile since I published a ranch update. Lots of folks have been asking for goat news, so I figured I’d better get to writing! Have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? It just makes everything so much harder. Back in the fall, I started keeping an eye on my goats, thinking they […]

Sewing a Village

My friend, Rose Marie, made a little house quilt last fall, and when she showed it to me, I fell in love with it! It’s so cute, and such a great use of scraps. I wanted to make one, but decided I don’t have time. Then . . . Stitch Supply Co. announced that they […]

January 350 Blocks Report

Here we are at the end of January already! If you looked at the Project page, you will have noticed that our monthly goal for blocks in January was only 10. Since we kicked off mid-month, I figure that’s a doable number. I have the Project page updated, but please double check me and make […]

Donna’s French Sampler

Back on December 15th, I loaded a quilt on the frame that belongs to my friend and customer, Donna. It was supposed to be my second-to-last finish of 2017, but I took 5 days off at Christmas to work on house remodel projects and enjoy the holiday with My Cowboy, and 2 days after Christmas, […]
