Swapping on the Internet

I'm so excited with the new fabric swap!! There was such a great response to my original discussion on the quilting page. We all need to thank Susan, the editor, for all her work in coordinating emails and swap partners. I've always loved swapping, but since I'm not in a guild anymore I don't seem to have much opportunity. Isn't the internet great! Anyhow, this picture is my Country Rose wallhanging. It is all hand appliqued and then machine quilted.… Continue

?? CHRISTMAS IN JULY ??

I've been noticing alot of "Christmas in July" promotions over the past month. It always seems the holidays creep up on me and every year I say I'm going to make this or that. Last winter I was flipping thru books and magazines to come up with an idea for a wallhanging. I found beautiful ideas but, each one was too Christmasy (is that a word?!). So I decided I would design my own wallhanging that could stay up longer throughout the winter. This… Continue

I've also noticed that different areas of the country offer different fabrics too, and this just widens the possibilities. So, keep on responding to the fabric… Continue

Door Topper

I work on alot of quilts at the same time as do most quilters, I think. Some days I cut, or pin, hand sew or machine sew. I might have lots of blocks to press, or paper to remove from a paper pieced project. But a good portion of these projects take some time and every now and again I like to throw in something quick and easy. That's when I decided to do the door topper. I was looking around the living room and thought to myself that the area over the… Continue

DO WHAT YOU LOVE....

DO WHAT YOU LOVE WITH ALL YOUR HEART. That's what this wallhanging in my sewing room says!! I couldn't agree more. I have been sewing forever (we'll keep that undisclosed!), and have been quilting for 20 years. Although I've tried my hand at many crafts, cross stitch, tole painting, floral arranging and so on, sewing has always been my passion. This is where the bulk of my "investment" to myself lies. I truly believe that purchasing good tools:… Continue
