Modern Heritage Quilts

It seems like eons ago that I pieced a couple of quilt tops for Amy Ellis for her new book. It’s excruciating to wait for all the work you’ve done to finally show up in print. But it’s all worth it in the end when you get to hold the fruits of your labor in […]

Finders Keepers Quilts

As usual, things have been busy around here. There’s always some kind of work to be done on a farm, and it’s time to begin winterizing, so My Cowboy has lots of projects he’s itching to do. He gets really antsy because he wants them all done NOW, but his health requires him to pace […]
