About Me
I love to make all types of quilts as well as admire the beautiful work of other talented and artistic quilters. I have won a couple of Blue Ribbons and one Grand Champion Quilt Ribbon at the Colorado State Fair. I prefer making old fashioned scrappy quilts rather than the current trend towards more artistic designs.

I am also a former professional "pets and their people" photographer. Currently working on creating a series of Louisiana Wildlife prints.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, paper piecing, machine quilting, crazy quilting, other
My pets are awesome!
Sable is our 6 year old Papillon and Houston is our newest addition to the family. He's a 2# Chihuahua (01-19-12) that runs Sable ragged!

My sewing room "was" my formal living room.  I had my sewing room upstairs and loved it but when I retired and started doing alterations it was much easier to have it downstairs.  I have a den so moved what I could in there and sold the rest to have my sewing room. I miss my piano but there just was no room for that in the den.  I don't have a longarm. I have been dabbling in free motion quilting but have a ways to go before it's perfected. I'm having problems with keeping the speed just right to keep the stitches more uniform.

Your tree quilt is beautiful, I love the woodsy theme quilts. I see your from Colorado Springs. I have been there and actually had tears in my eyes when I looked up at that beautiful mountain range. My niece was living on the base there.  They built a home in Fountain Col. after her husband retired from the Army.  I live in a valley not far from the ocean but I love the mountains. They are so majestic.

Thank you for the comment on my bargello. No I wouldn't say it is difficult because it is all straight seams BUT it was time consuming. We used a flannel that had a grid printed on it to keep things straight. Thanks again.

I answered your question regarding photo transfer. It's under the quilt on my page. Thanks for asking!

Thanks so much for your kind comments regarding my mom...and for your compliments on my memory quilt. It was a very healing process and helped a lot I think. I noticed that you live in Colorado Springs? I'm just north of you a bit in Federal Heights...we're practically neighbors, so to speak! I too love paper piecing...I would enjoy viewing many more of your quilts once you get them posted...let's stay in touch? Have a great day!

Hi Linda, Thank you for the lovely comment on by pumpkin quilt - I really appreciate it. It is a grid pattern that I found at a quilt shop hop last summer. It is called Scrabble Jack and it is by . Happy Hollow Designs

Hi Linda:

It's been a while... My computer had a melt down. I'm quilting and getting ready for our Quilt Auction Nov. 6 at the Ute Pass Cultural Center 6:00 p to 9 p. Up here in Woodland Park, CO. It's the Decadent Desserts from our Quilt Table Cook book. Our group Quilters Above the Clouds, are putting it on to raise $ for the Advocacy Quilts for the kids in El Paso and Teller Counties.

If you are interested. We will have a live auction too. I hope that you and a friend could come. I will be helping out with the event. I'd love to meet you in person.I hope that you are busy quilting. I've got 7 quilts in que and hoping to get them all done for the auction. I will catch up with you after the event.
Take good care.
Stitching On,

aline joy

Thanks for the comment! I just made up the pattern for chili jar bags with a little trial and error, based on some other drawstring bags I had done in the past (with patterns). The jars were oddly sized, so I had to make them long and skinny!

I won't be responsible for the backing or the quilting... This quilt is for my long-arm quilter... she is getting this quilt top and I'm getting 5 quilts quilted... I think it is a fair trade!! But she will be doing the quilting on it...
