Low-Volume Fabric

I’ve been asked several times what I mean when I say “low-volume fabric”, so today I thought I’d address that, especially since I just recently mentioned that I want to reorganize my fabric stash to include a low-volume bin. Low-volume fabric is basically just fabric that has low color value. They are usually prints, and […]

Hospital Sketches

Well, I caved and started a new quilt. What’s more, I talked my sister into doing it, too! She’s my partner in crime for most of my quilting activities — how could she say no? But when you see it, you’ll stop wondering why I gave in. It’s a new Quilt-Along by Barbara Brackman, hosted […]

Valentine Stitchery

I felt the urge to make a new Valentine’s project this year, and I wanted to do something with embroidery. I thought about designing something completely new, but I’m still in love with my “Be Mine” Valentine appliqué wall quilt pattern, so I decided to use it to make a little stitchery mini quilt. Here’s […]

Red & White Quilts

A new book was just released last month (by Martingale) featuring a collection of the most gorgeous Red & White Quilts. Fourteen designers were asked to create a quilt for this book, and honestly, I cannot pick a favorite! What’s not to love about red and white? And the book itself is beautiful and fun […]

Our guild is having a handmade bazaar at this year’s Brunswick Pecan Festival (this weekend in Brunswick, MO), and members are making handmade items to put in the booth so we can raise a little money for the guild. If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of […]

Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Show

Yesterday My Cowboy and I took a day trip to Springfield, MO, so that I could see the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Show. He went off and did his own thing while I was at the show. I asked him if he wanted to come in, and he said: “Nope. I have to look at that […]

It’s always been my dream to have a lovely decorated home for the holidays, full of wonderful handmade items I’ve made, handmade gifts to give, and homemade goodies like perfectly decorated Christmas cookies, or a fabulous line-up of fresh-baked pies with perfect crusts. In my dreams, my home is clean and warm, and smells like […]

Spotted. Out and About.

I’ve gone to several quilt shows this year, and readers and customers have also been kind enough to send photos, and some of my fellow guild members have shown me things they’ve done . . . And there have been a lot of quilts made from my patterns floating around in the wild! I’m so […]
