Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt 29" x35" that I made from a kit for a little baby girl to be born in Oct. to a new mom. 
Shhh it is a secret. I added another border at top and used wool batting which makes it light and soft. quilted on my short arm. You can see a close up on my page-pictures. Fun to do!

Colorado Shops

Wondering if anyone knows of any quilt shops in the southern part of Colorado.  We'll be there Sept. 12 - 19, traveling from Denver to Durango to Telluride.  I've been to the Great American Quilt Factory and have that at the top of my list.  Would love to know if there are any stops I should include in our trip.  Thanks.

Hi i am a recent widow and retired after 44 years of nursing. I have been quilting for about 30 years. My Mother was a quilter so i have carried on the tradition for the family. I love 1930's reproduction fabric and batiks, i know an odd combination. I go to quilt camp twice a year and more if I could afford it. I have a cat Bumper. Continue

Day of reckoning

I know your all dying to find out how the "hair clippers worked". Yesterday dh asked me to give him a haircut but I skirted the issue by saying I was too busy to do it.  I told him I would cut it today. Hoping he'd forget. After lunch he said, "I don't suppose you can cut my hair". I didn't know whether to lie and say I was too busy or tell him the truth. I opted to do neither. I said O.k. so off to the kitchen we went.  To my surprise the clippers work just fine and I decided never to tell… Continue

Modern Quilts

I've started a new group for those of you who are interested in modern quilts. Since the Contemporary Quilt Along never took off (I think mainly because there was no way for a daily discussion) I thought I'd start this group so we can talk and share ideas.

So if you like to make traditional quilts with a modern look using wonderful new fabrics and fresh color combinations come and join this new group. 

You can find us here: …

Two New Web Sites Coming From RKMQUILTS.COM!


The Quilter Cook and The Crafty Quilter

So, I have decided that my collection of recipes and craft ideas has run away from me on my web site rkmquilts.com. Starting soon, I will have two new sites where you can copy off my ideas.

Originally, I started RKMQUILTS as a place to write my Roseville novels and then slowly it has grown larger and larger into some other "fun" avenues. Now, I have so much on the tool bar that I have to "weed…

Kitchen tiling is done....

I got a lot of sewing done while they were finishing the tile. I designed a medallion for over the sink, but what you have to go through to get it together and up...was going to be too costly. So, went with one already made, that I really like. This is a job, but very happy with the results. In the meantime, I made a mini bow purse! So, was a successful day! Will work on bags for the children hospital today for Beads of Courage.

Have a great day!…

Power ON after 34 hours

Without power, I thought that I would lose my mind camping out in my own home. But it came on this morning at 12:45a.m. after almost 34 hours of no power. My rug in the family room already has a mildew odor. I'm hoping with baking soda and Carpet Fresh, and a lot of fans blowing around, that may help reduce the smell. It gives me a headache and I'm finding that I can't sleep. My heart goes out to others who have worse situations in the NE. I simply cannont imagine how devastating it could…

Hi all, just wanted to let you know we didn't get much of the storm here at my house. Was really surprised at how little wind and rain we got. We're about a mile or two from the Intrecoastal waterway and a little bit more from the Atlantic as the Crow files so I expected to get a lot of wind and rain. I'm not sorry a bit and do feel for those who got hit hard in NC and up the Coast.


Take Care,
