I’ve gone and done it now

I've added a Retreat to the list of classes. I've wanted to add a retreat for a very long time, now seemed as good a time as any. A three or five day retreat to explore the world of thread, batting, design, and color. Find the eclecticness of you, the freedom to explore and push… Continue reading I’ve gone and done it now

Why I quilt

I love this quilt, Serendipity. It is the result of needing to make a new quilt for Mary W. Kerr's book a few years ago. I had to think inside and outside my box all at the same time. Inside my box is a whole lot of stuff that I use to quilt. Outside my… Continue reading Why I quilt

Serendipity the Third Time Around You may wonder how I moved so quickly from Serendipity to Serendipity the Third Time Around. Wonder no more!

Yesterday 18 students gathered to have their "colors" done.  I covered the shop floor while my coworkers attended the workshop.  However I asked my boss last week, knowing I couldn't attend the class. … Continue reading Color Me

Thinking, thinking and I would like your input, please

I've been teaching machine quilting on a domestic for about 4 1/2 to 5 years now. I… Continue reading Thinking, thinking and I would like your input, please

Tilde wins 3rd in it’s category at Road to California

And now I have a photo of Keith with the quilt.  One day we'll be at the same show together with the quilt.  For now I have to be satisfied with this one. I'm thrilled Keith got to see Tilde hanging in the show.  It's always exciting to see your quilt hanging.  Keith's sister Rachel… Continue reading Tilde wins 3rd in it’s category at Road to California
