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 […]

Reworking Vintage

I have quite a collection of vintage quilt tops and vintage orphan blocks. One of my favorite quilting pastimes is reworking them into new finished quilts. I don’t get to spend as much time at it as I’d like, but every now and then, I put in some effort on it. I’m teaching at Arrow […]

Fortunately, I was at my guild’s spring retreat last weekend at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s fabulous retreat center, where I did move a few projects forward with some uninterrupted sewing time. We got to watch the […]
