I'm finishing up a graduation quilt for a niece. It's been a fun project - no pattern. Flying by the seat of my pants when quilting - especially when it comes to the math - is not my strong suit.
Outside of the 4 main big block printed panels, all of the fabric has been from my stash, which is something I'm trying hard to stick do these days. When I started, I "knew" exactly which fabric I was going to use on the last border, and amazingly enough, I had it in yardage. (I tend to…Continue
My husband, daughter, 2 grandsons & I drove from Mid-Missouri to Minneapolis yesterday to attend our oldest daughter's wedding tomorrow.

Three other co-workers and myself decided to make her a quilt (none of the others are…Continue
. . .I kinda wish I had taken the chance and entered it even though it was not finished when entries were due. I made this one up from the memory of a block I had seen up on a design wall at the last retreat. It was in purple and pink, with white, and somehow it attracted my attention. I looked in my "stash" and came up with this version.
I hate wasting fabric to fussy cut, but it seemed worth it to center the roses in the block. It is called "Roses in the Midnight…Continue
