About a year ago I responded to a call for quilt patterns in recognition of Cinco De Mayo. This is the throw I designed:Continue
I like to interview my fabric before selecting which ones to use. I do a rough layout and switch different swatches or scraps then take a photo in the light where the finished project may be. This is a Christmas bed runner I'm in the process of deciding. I'm not happy with the first ball...the accent fabrics do not…Continue
No, not talking about Prince, although he's been the topic of discussion these days. Strange how people scurry out of the woodwork to capitalize when tragedy strikes...family or otherwise.
Anyway, I have once again (somehow) subjected myself to help out (a cousin-in-law this time) with making her daughter a quilt. I say help, but yes, I am making the entire thing start to finish.

The name came as a result of us being asked to purchase insurance to protect the university from liability should one of us…Continue
Finally got that paper-pieced turtle quilt set off to my sister in law. She loved it, thought it was so cute. I really wish I could post a photo, I've tried everything I can think of. My Vivitar digital camera software just isn't going to cooperate.

Only real difference is the fact that I used a whole strip of a cute cartoon turtle print for the outer…Continue
