There are many, many thank you's this week. First, Trish and the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show Committee, it was an honor to be invited to be the Featured Speaker. I really enjoyed spending the weekend at the show, sharing quilting, and teaching each one of the quilters who attended. Our quilts are the story of… Continue reading Thank YOU!
While Shadowing one of the Floriani Educators last week my brain went into high gear. She could see it as I sat in the back of the room listening to Sarabeth. I'm not using her real name because she isn't a huge fan of social media, and I'm respecting that. Sarabeth presented each one of… Continue reading Wow! Wow! Wow!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The congratulatory messages on my new position with Floriani are simply awe inspiring. Now onto our regularly scheduled program: Oh I do remember giving you this update sometime during the week in Instagram. Debby was stitching this motif on a postcard, and I was inspired by it. I'm… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month August week 2
Last week we focused on the "bones" also known as stitching in the ditch. When you're working on a quilt it's not a "have to do" rather, it's a good thing to do. When working on something like @play the bones get stitched as these would be the ditch in a pieced quilt top. Finer… Continue reading July Quilted Block of the month part 2

Jenelle is a smart, astute woman with a beautiful perspective on re-using stuff we would normally toss in the trash. Listening to her this morning… Continue reading Listening
my sweetie put the a/c in the window this morning. The last few days the desire to quilt several things has been held at bay while waiting for the a/c or the temperatures to cool down. Both happened today offering the opportunity to stitch. First up I made a postcard for the 1000 Postcards for… Continue reading it all started when
I'm not sure what happened however, all of the sudden Microsoft Office isn't working on my laptop. So early this afternoon I handed this thing off to the in-house tech support. It's still not working. Gah! I'm going to have to give it back to him tomorrow. He says there's an app I downloaded and… Continue reading Gah!
I'm a quilter. And by that I love to free motion machine quilt. On and off I've had to work through the equivalent of writers block. I just. couldn't. quilt. Those moments were tough but often led to something that would pleasantly surprise me. Whew. Would it surprise you that, while I've been quilting on… Continue reading Quilterly Writers Block
https://www.instagram.com/p/BT9xco2B4RA/?taken-by=terilucas I finished quilting a quilt top this afternoon. It was so fun. The quilting is decidedly not my usual style, but the quilt is so fun and quirky. Along the top of the quilt I wrote "hello" all over it, and quilted in the hashtag #quiltsrule https://www.instagram.com/p/BT9pDTUh2Dg/?taken-by=terilucas In a few places I wrote… Continue reading A little bit of this and a little bit of that
It's a wrap! The BERNINA Ambassador Blog tour is complete. Getting to know more about the people you work with is always a good idea. So here's a quote from each one: From Cherry Guidry: I took my first quilting class summer of 2004 and wanted to learn to applique, but my sewing machine didn’t feature the right… Continue reading BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour It’s a Wrap
