October 350 Blocks Report

Oh, my gosh! What a whirlwind month of quilting! I had so little on my plate for the trade show (Quilt Market) this fall, I was resting on my laurels and feeling quite smug about it, and then all of a sudden — BAM! — along with quilting three quilts that had to be done, […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1739

September 350 Blocks Report

Last month we had fall weather, and this month has felt like July again! I think it’s the hottest September we’ve had in ages — whew! Mid-90s a lot of the time, and lots of storms, too. When I first realized it was time to write this post, I thought I didn’t have ANY blocks […]

August 350 Blocks Report

Labor Day weekend! How is this possible already!?? And this morning, I wore long sleeves. It’s August 31st, and it’s already cooling off like fall. My favorite time of year. But since it seems to be arriving a tad early, I’m wondering if it means we’re going to have a really cold winter, and I […]
