About Me
I am not a pattern follower and enjoy designing and creating my own art quilts. I have used many different techniques, textiles and mediums to create my art, however I enjoy traditional block quilts as well. I use my home machine to piece and quilt up to full size quilts. I like to add embellishments and texture to my creations which provide depth and interest.

Sapphires quilt is done!

Posted on June 16, 2017 at 7:29am 10 Comments

Yesterday I had a couple of hours in my studio and finished it.  I'm happy with the outcome and my son has already expressed his opinion with "FABULOUS".   That makes me feel good.  The quilt is fairly square so the question is, which end should be up?  When I was in the design wall phase, the winding path was meant to be on  the left.  However, I am liking the path horizontal.  What do you think?  …

Half Over

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 12:22pm 3 Comments

Oh my gosh!  Where has the first half of the year gone?  I haven't blogged in ages and I feel like since the weather has gotten better all my time is spent doing those jobs outdoors.  Not just gardening either.  We had to fix some facing coming off our house and patio walls.  Though not a hard thing to do, just time consuming.  The other big project was moving wagon loads of rock from the back yard to the front yard, replacing bark chips  ( I hate bark, it blows...everywhere) with the rock.…

Charity Project time

Posted on April 19, 2017 at 10:16am 2 Comments

Haven't blogged in a while, but that doesn't mean I've been lax on the work in the studio.  My DH had a Birthday early April so when our DS came for a visit we combined his Birthday, our 35th Anniversary and Easter together as all these celebrations were only separated by a couple days.  It was so good to see him and spend some time together.  

I've been spending my studio time making charity kennel quilts and MorsBags.  Seems like the scrap bin is getting bigger with smaller scraps…

Out of the Blue -UFO

Posted on March 3, 2017 at 9:00am 1 Comment

I'm working on another UFO.  This one has been in my basket for about 3 years.  It was a challenge piece in that the circles had to be as perfect as possible and pieced, then appliqued onto a whole cloth background.  The pathway is also a challenge as it was pieced together with strippy pieces in differing widths and cut to meander down the side of the whole cloth background.  It sat in my basket up to the sandwich stage.  So, I've again committed to working on it for at least 1 hour…

Sandra, I think when you make a new post, at the bottom of the page it asks, "Who can comment on this post" and if "just me" is selected, no one else can comment.  I just didn't want you to think we were all snubbing your posts when no one commented on them.  :)

UFO Circle quilt - The comment section was closed on this post, Sandra, but I wanted to tell you how lovely the quilting is on this project.  I admire anyone who can free-motion quilt, and this is turning out beautifully.  Hopefully it will be a fun, relaxing project for you.
