Arsenic & Old Lace, Chocolate cake and a long arm

  Debby Brown has a Handi Quilter Avante in her studio, and on occasion when needed she lets me use it to baste my larger quilts. Yesterday I basted two quilts Arsenic & Old Lace pieced by Keith Dommer and Supernova in Chartreuse designed by none other than Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero.

2017 Word of the Year

Quite frankly seeing the back of 2016 is something of a relief. 2016 has kind of kicked me in the shins repeatedly, been a bit of a bully, and needs to end.

I did try to turn away politely, not staring but it was so sweet that I had to capture the moment. The dog and the pig kissing was suggested by Kelly Ann, the fun-sized owner of Kelly Ann's… Continue reading Bucket List

Doing the (prep) Work, the next part

At some point in my quilting journey I knew that teaching was a next step. How did I know? Well, another quilter asked me one day, "Teri, when are you going to start teaching?" Well, I guess . .  soon. It took me a bit, but I figured out that I wanted to teach machine… Continue reading Doing the (prep) Work, the next part
