This past month, I pretty much did nothing but work on the new Block-of-the-Month quilts for Sew […]

Vines and Valleys

A while back, I showed you the back of a quilt I had been working on, and said I’d show you the front when I could (in this post here). Well, the cat’s been out of the bag for a couple months, but I never took the time to write anything up till now! This […]

July 350 Blocks Report

Here we are in August already! How can that be? It’s been 7 months, and I still haven’t had my cutting table completely cleared off once this entire year! This is STILL pretty much its current state — I leave myself one little clear corner to work on — pathetic! I think I need to […]

Quilts for Pam and Rachel

A couple years ago, my cousins asked me if I would help them out by finishing some quilt tops that my Great-Aunt Jo had started before she passed away. I was honored to do it. Isn’t this a lovely stack of finished quilts? First up was a set of embroidered blocks that Aunt Jo had […]

A Trunk Show by Julee Prose

Last night at our guild meeting we were treated to a trunk show by Julee Prose. If you’re familiar with Julee’s work, you know she does some really spectacular hand appliqué, which is right up my alley! Her trunk show did not disappoint! I asked her permission to post a few pictures of some of […]

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 […]
