I’ve been seeing so many cute things that look like they’d be fun online lately. It’s all I can do not to start some of them! So, I thought I’d share them with you, and just live vicariously through watching other people do them, until I get my own mess a bit more under control. […]

Off The Cuff BOM

My bestie, Victoria, just launched her first Block-of-the-Month quilt, and I couldn’t resist jumping in on it. It’s called Off The Cuff, and I had the honor of quilting two of the sample quilts for this BOM, the red one, and the light one, and it was hard to pick a favorite — I think […]

Flying Geese and a Correction

Today’s post is for those of you who are working along on the Summertime Sampler Block-of-the-Month quilts. As you work on some of the filler sections, you will be making lots of Flying Geese, and while I’ve spelled it out in the instruction booklet very clearly (I hope), I thought I’d also provide you with […]

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 […]
