About Me
Lately I've made mostly scrappy quilts. Yet my scrap baskets are still overflowing, I don't understand how that happens.

I belong to a quilt group in Phoenix called Reap What You Sew. They distribute approx. 2500 quilts annually to various charities in the Phoenix area. I started a small chapter of RWYS at my church in Scottsdale. We take quilt tops that people make and put batting and backing to them and then tie them. When they are finished we return them to the main RWYS group for distribution in the fall. A friend has taken over since I moved to Ohio and she has done a great job. I love to see how the group has grown since I left when I visit each winter. Earlier this month (May 2013) I started an Ohio Chapter of RWYS. Started with 8 ladies and I learned there are 2-4 more ladies interested in comining next month. Best of all they all want to start sewing regardless of their level of skill. God is an awesome God.

My door always welcomes a fellow quilter!

Amish Country Retreat Aug.23 -26,2012

The retreat is over, but we all are planning for next year. We had a great time working on new projects and completing old UFOs. We developed new friendships and deepened old friendships.Friends stopped in to say hello and  folks staying in the hotel stopped by too. It was a great weekend. It was sad to say goodbye...but there's a little (maybe not so little) gremlin already at work for next year. Shhh..... it's still a secret until an announcement is made.

Happy quilting!

2013 Amish Retreat was Great!

I highly recommend the Rural Thimble by Miller's Dry Goods in Charm, OH for a quilt retreat. They thought of everything....about the only complaint was they needed some padding on the ironing boards. We had so much fun and if you ran out of something, all you had to do is run next door to Miller's and buy it plus they gave you a 10% discount the whole time we were there! Needless to say we ran in there quite a bit!!!

We surprised each other with gifts throughout the weekend and had…

Sneak Peak at Remodeled Sewing Room

Posted on March 17, 2013 at 2:00pm 14 Comments

The moment is almost here when I can finally move back into my sewing room.  Right now I can move in the Elna, but I'm trying to figure out a way to bring in the Pfaff too. I have a friend who comes over and sews strips and/or squares for me. I.m trying to figure out if the small table will fit and still give me enough room to move around without being too constricted. . Let me explain some of the changes. I've had new windows put in. They've already been tested thanks to Mother Nature; and…

Thanks Linda - you are very kind and sweet to say those things of my work. You, also, do beautiful, charitable work. I hope you have a good Memorial Day weekend - a safe one and hope you will be back home soon. Hugs, Becky

hello Linda - Haven't heard from you in a while and do hope you are feeling better. Did you have a good Easter? I had a bad sciatica attack onValentine's Day - been going to physical therapy and it has helped tremendously. I don't want another repeat of this - ever - so I'm taking it easy and listening to my doctor. I finished the amarrylis table topper - have to have my husband take a picture of it and put on my page here on the site.  do take care and hope to hear from you soon - Happy Spring - Becky

I'm so glad you wrote back, Linda. I see you are on line now - was going to chat with you a bit but you must be busy doing other things, and that's ok. Worked on some hand quilting today a bit. Got to get these projects done :) I'm so sorry you are in so much pain. I will keep you in my prayers. Hugs, Becky C.

Hello Linda - Just wanted to say "hi" and see how you are doing. I hope better. I'm working on a charm square table topper - it's almost done. Did the stitching in the ditch around each square last night and have the binding almost sewed on around it. it's nice to get projects done. Take care and hope to hear from you soon. Becky C.

Linda,I can't find your album called Standing Stones - i'm obviously looking in the wrong area - is it where all your pictures of quilts are?

Dear Linda - I'm so sorry that you have been so very sick. I've had pneumonia twice, and it takes a long time to get over it and feel like normal again. Thank you for your lovely comments about my quilt. Yes, it was a lot of work, but now I can put it behind me and move on to my next project. Let's all hope Spring comes soon - we need some warmth LOL - hugs, becky
