I recently spent a fun day with a friend who was willing to be a guest on a video I posted on my Youtube channel and Facebook pages. Luckily, she's a good sport with a sense of humour, and we spent as much time laughing as we did sewing! Check it out below, and be… Continue reading Featherweight Fun with a Friend
I started free motion quilting in 2015 on my old workhorse of a Pfaff using a darning foot, quickly realized I loved it and that I wanted a bigger throat space, so upgraded to a new domestic machine designed for quilters.

I recently finished this project for a client, making good use of my Gammill Statler Stitcher for the custom quilting both in and around the snowflake tree. I love all those lines with varied spacing! I was able to mark them out as I went along the quilt so I could design on the fly… Continue reading Snowflake Tree Quilt Panel
This quilt is made from a pattern published by Missouri Star Quilt Company and they call it "Oberlin". I used it recently as the basis for a larger quilt - I put four of these together and added a border - but this grey and white smaller custom version was the one I first intended… Continue reading Custom Quilting Ohio Star
