Village Squares Quilters & a Reminder

While talking with a friend and shop owner this post from 2014/2017 came up in conversation. I wrote: I hereby propose that the word “JUST” be permanently removed from the Quilters Lexicon. I’m just a beginner I’m just a traditional quilter I’m just a new paper piecer I’m just I’m just I’m just We are… Continue reading Village Squares Quilters & a Reminder

A Matter of Perspective and Experience

Every once in a while Tracy Mooney will post a question on the big social media site asking questions for whatever publication she's working on. Recently she asked about sewing on the go, and I got to respond with...head on over to The Quilting Company to see, and while you're at it give the podcast… Continue reading A Matter of Perspective and Experience

Speaking Gig

I'm visiting with the Huntington Quilt Guild in East Northport on Tuesday February 5th. I met Alyson at the City Quilter a few years ago, striking up a conversation with her, and her mom. We were still doing the magazine and I thought the idea of parent/kid quilt duos were a neat story idea. It… Continue reading Speaking Gig

Did you ever?

Wonder what the heck? I do. So, I'm not sure if you know that the City Quilter is closing in October (as of yet there is no final date). Dale and Cathy are ready to retire. While it's hard to see another quilt shop close, leaving a huge hole in the NY Quilting Landscape, I'm… Continue reading Did you ever?

An Invitation, Accepted

A few years back I entered "Twilight in the Bronx" into the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show. It came home with a second place ribbon. I remember talking with a couple of ladies after picking my quilt up and remember doing the whole, "pointing out of the flaws" when "Thank You" is gracious. Thank you! I've… Continue reading An Invitation, Accepted

Coffee

Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. One might think I have a love affair with coffee, and one would be right. I love me some good coffee from grinding the beans to sipping slowly as I wake up. A few weeks ago I had to leave the house pre-coffee and stopped at Starbucks on my way… Continue reading Coffee

Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild Meeting

April First is always bittersweet. Memories flood back remembering my dad's passing.  This year was a bit different as the Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild booked me to speak on Finding my Quilterly Groove. As I spoke about quilts and learning who I am as a quilter (that Groove!), one of the quilters who held… Continue reading Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild Meeting

It takes time

Spending time quilting is a great joy. When I get to I relish each and every moment, particularly when I get lost in the stitching and lose track of what's going on around me. It's freeing, meditative, relaxing and joyous all in the same moment. Quilting wasn't always that way. It was downright painful and… Continue reading It takes time

Telling the Story

A while back I changed the title of my trunk show from Quilting is a Beautiful and Complicated Art to Finding my Quilterly Groove. Quilting is a beautiful and complicated art there is no doubt in my mind, there never will be. From beginning to end we make decisions from size and shape to color and… Continue reading Telling the Story
