Book Review Day

Writing book reviews and participating in blog tours for Generation Q Magazine was an important component of my work on the website, and in our pages. While doing my best not to play favorites I did have them, usually finding the words endearing them to my heart within the first two pages. Each book brings… Continue reading Book Review Day

A bit of a round up

Over the last couple of years I've been switching over to Alex Anderson's Quilters Select Rulers and Mats. The Quilt Show posted a video of Alex demoing the ruler and mat: https://www.facebook.com/TQShow/videos/196028521005926/ and here's the whole bit in one vid: https://www.facebook.com/TQShow/videos/196017877673657/ I keep the 12'' x 18'' by my sewing machine to square up blocks,… Continue reading A bit of a round up

Color Wheel

I like color. A lot. I like how color plays. I like how color sings. I like how color behaves, misbehaves, swirls, whirls, blends, hides, shows off and generally is itself.

Quilt Market: a personal report

I love going to Quilt Market. There isn't quite the buzz of Quilt Festival or one of the other larger quilt shows, however on Saturday afternoon I heard it.

Overwhelmed

Okay, I'm totally taking a conversation with the comments to heart and brain and in quilt-teacher fashion addressing the larger group of students as the information is pertinent to all. Where do I begin? How do I decide what motifs to use? How do I choose what weight and color thread? What batting do I… Continue reading Overwhelmed
