A Wonderful Evening

It’s always a wonderful evening when you get to look at and talk about quilts, right? I spent yesterday evening at the Macon County Historical Society Museum in Macon, Missouri, presenting a program about The Life of Hazel Ilene. I showed all the quilts from my book “A Simple Life: Quilts Inspired by the ’50s”, and […]

Oh, The Insanity!

Oh, The Insanity!

Not that you’ve noticed, but I’ve been a bit absent online lately. I’m extremely busy with some very important projects and deadlines (and very behind on some of them), so I’ve had my nose to the grindstone. Did you catch that word “extremely”? It’s a bit of an understatement. Since Monday morning, I have stood […]

And I’m throwing in a little News From the Ranch for good measure. I’ve been working hard on lots of fun stuff lately. Some of it I can’t show you just yet, but some of it I can, so I will! Last week I showed you a bunch of pieces I cut using a new little wedge […]

Finders Keepers Quilts

My friend, Edie McGinnis, has recently had her 18th (I think) quilting book published! This one is called Finders Keepers Quilts, and it’s chock full of reproductions based on a fantastic find of vintage quilts in an abandoned farmhouse in Iowa. You can read more about the quilts, and the story, and see more pictures, […]

News From The Studio, Episode 1435

This week went by at lightning speed — here is it Friday already, and I can’t even tell you where my week went! I know I spent a lot of it doing math, followed by suffering a migraine. I wonder if those two are related somehow? I try to spend a little time every day […]

Dealing With UFOs

With over 100 UnFinished Objects on my list, I figure I’d better come up with a good method for dealing with them, right? My Procrastination Challenges last year didn’t help me out too much. I did move a few projects further along, but nothing from that list actually got finished. That needs to change! Of […]

A Few Projects

I thought I’d take a little time today to show you some of the projects I’ve been working on. A lot of the time, I can’t show what I’m working on because it belongs to someone else, but sometimes I get to squeeze in a couple things for myself. I’ve been doing the Moda Sampler […]
