About Me
I live in a small town in Ohio and we just celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. We have 2 adult children and one granddaughter who's my pride and joy. I've been quilting for just about 13 years. I'm still learning (so don't look too close) but I really enjoy trying new techniques. In 2011, I was fortunate and honored to have been chosen as a member of Quiltmaker Magazine's Scrap Squad. It was quite an adventure; I learned a lot and had lots of fun!
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, paper piecing, machine quilting, embroidery, general sewing, other

A little excited - my best year yet exhibiting at our county fair; 9 ribbons -- 6 blue, 3 red.  Such fun to see your work arranged so nicely for folks to enjoy.  If you have never entered, give it a…

Just saw this on Facebook.  I know we all do this all the time without a second thought but I guess it's a REALLY bad idea!

Whimsical Welcome pattern

Posted on March 28, 2014 at 12:00pm 35 Comments

OK, I can make enough errors in quilting on my own without help.

I bought Fons & Porter's Quilting Celebration fall 2013 issue because I fell in love with the Whimsical Welcome banner pattern on the front cover. Checked that all the pattern pieces were full size.  Traced all the pattern pieces onto fusible; ironed them onto carefully chosen fabrics and cut them out.  Triple checked the size for the background fabric and cut into my last piece of perfect "sky fabric" and a…

An inspirational day brightener

I posted this on one of the groups and was asked to put it on the main page.  I read it some time ago and found it again today on another site.

If you need a morale booster, this is for all the moms and grandmas out there.

Adding pictures

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 2:00pm 7 Comments

Anyone else have this problem?

I can add pictures to my page and I can add a picture to my comments in my groups.  But I can't add a picture to individual messages or to a blog post on the main page or to a comment on a main page post.  I use Internet Explorer and when I try it says that the website has experienced a problem and IE needs to shut down.  Then it does and reopens the page but without my typed comment.  Suggestions…

Oh, before I forget.....there is a New Philadelphia only about 35 miles from us here in Canton, IL. But it's not much more than a dip in the road. Ha,ha.   And, yes, I have been through Canton, Ohio and Canton, MO.

Sending my Christmas wishes to you and your family as well. It certainly is a joy for me to have found this group of crafty women.  We have so much fun. And I'm looking forward to lots more fun in the new year!

Thank you for your comments about my 3 Sister's quilt.  It was fun to do and DH loves it too.  We do have great memories of that area.

Carol, thank you so much for my card, you are such a sweetheart!!!!! I am feeling better, this is the first time I have actually felt like being on the computer for a few minutes.  I read on the book group where you wrote about the Sugar Creek festival.  I wish I could come, that would be so much fun.  Maybe next year, please remind me, maybe I can get Dale out for a few days.  We both desperately need some fun time and time with friends.  Thanks again Carol and Jim too!!

Thank you for looking and the nice compliments. The blocks are the Carpenter's Square and since her husband was in that line of work, (Quantity Surveyor), the quilt means even more to her.  That makes me very happy.

Carol - I used to play a lot until I had a stroke in 2008. Couldn't play at all for 2 or 3 years. Now I can play a little but I have lost a lot of strength in my arms and hands and I can't play nearly as well. I still try and sometimes it seems better. I guess all I can do is keep trying. Thanks for your comment.

Hi Carol.  Thank you for taking the time to comment on my quilt.  It started as a challenge in our group.  We were given paint cards and had to use three colors from the card.  It was fun to do and I hand quilted it too.

Thank you for the encouraging words, Carol. I need to "neaten" up my points and seams and the mystery quilt has helped a lot.

You have some lovely work in your albums too. It is really nice to find people with similar hobbies and passions.
