Quilting This Week

A Name and a Purpose is taking shape and form.  Meet "Lenny" in process. The overall look will change over time as the overall idea takes shape.

Quilting with Intention

Donna Morales-Oemig your fabric still speaks to my heart. Donna snow dyed a few pieces of Robert Kaufman's Radiance in the 2014/2015 winter when eastern Massachusetts got over 100 inches of snow.

    Yesterday I finished the quilting on Moon Set, the name of my nearly completed whole cloth challenge quilt. Binding or facing will be completed, probably on the plane to Chicago later this week. The determining factor for binding or facing will be when I trim it down, the quilt will let me know… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge

Whole cloth challenge update and A visit to my family

As you saw the other day Lisa Calle and I had a great visit to Olde City Quilts earlier this week. While we were there we took a few minutes to work out a few more details for the Whole Cloth Challenge!  (Note as you'll see below I am heading out for a trip this… Continue reading Whole cloth challenge update and A visit to my family
