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.

Moving...time to hand sew

Posted on December 7, 2017 at 6:02pm 5 Comments

Wow, has it really been over 6 months since I last wrote a post?  This year has just flown by, and now it's time to up stakes and move.  Over my life time I've moved 14 times and it seems they have all been different in some way or another.  If you're wondering, yes, I married a military man.  Today has been a long exhausting day as it is the eve of our scheduled pack-out.  Exhausted because for the last few weeks I've been setting aside everything I need for the next 6 weeks including…


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

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

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…

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.
