Well, did not realize it has been a whole year since I have been here - but have been doing some "quilting" recently. Have made a couple of table runners for my daughter - need to get pictures posted. She loves chickens so one had chickens and the other on is farm fabric. And am looking for material for another one.
Have started a quilt for my son - he loves cats and found some great "cat" fabric at Missouri Quilt Co. He wants it long enough so his feet do not stick out…Continue
What a wonderful Spirit Led week.
I was kept busy with little projects and scheduling time. I made a couple of gift bags for a couple of boys' presents. Their party was Saturday though their birthdays were earlier in the month. The boys are brothers and are about 2 years apart, 7 and 9, now. These are the son's of the young lady (Rachel) that our oldest is seeing. The one I taught how to quilt. In fact, I slid her into my schedule this past week to mend a couple of spots…Continue
It has been awhile since I have posted a blog. I finished this table runner today, and wanted to share it. This is my adaptation of "On a Limb" designed by Mary Warner-Stone (directions in the December 2016-March 2017 issues of "The Quilt Pattern Magazine"…Continue
We have been traveling the past week. Decided to drive to Halifax, NS via VT, NH, and Maine. We decided that many people miss out on the colors of Spring with the different trees leafing. The coast line of Maine was special. We stopped in Kennebunkport for lunch and picked out our fictious house on the sound! If only....
We stopped in Freeport at the LL Bean place and did a little shopping. Was surprised that they are open 24 hrs. We had lunch in Belfast down on the wharf where they…Continue
If you haven't heard, Bill Schroeder passed away May 13 at the age of 85. He and his wife have been an integral part of the quilting world for many years.

Also in the publishing world they began AQ Magazine as well as many other publications. The accomplishments of Bill and Marilyn Schroeder are so numerous. An amazing couple to say the least.

I am looking to purchase the pattern shown below. It was in an ad in the Mar/Apr 2013 edition of Quiltmaker. I will be making a quilt for my son's wedding and this is one of the patterns my soon-to-be daughter liked. It is the one I like best and would feel most comfortable working on. It anyone has the name, knows where I might buy it, or has one they are willing to sell, please let me know.……
I really enjoy doing wool applique'. Wish it wasn't so darned expensive, but I just tell myself I'm worth it. I started making this on April 26th at a meeting of like minded quilters and finished it about 10 days later. I decided to have it framed at my local Michael's store and they did a fabulous job. Right now it is leaning up against the wall in my office as I want to take it to show it off to my friends who belong to the same little group when we meet next week. This is from the…Continue
