Featherweight Fun with a Friend

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

For the Love of Vintage

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. With the eventual progression to bigger longarm machines in my studio, this new domestic… Continue reading For the Love of Vintage

Hippie Trailer Quilt

I've mentioned already - and if not here, then in several other places! - that I sat down in the fall and pondered a few projects I had thought of maybe doing "some day" and made decisions about which ones I was going to go ahead with and how.

Crazy Quilt Lady

As I stood over the trash can in my sewing room this morning about to dig for "crumbs", I faced an unavoidable truth: I've hit the point of no return.

Snowflake Tree Quilt Panel

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

Custom Quilting Ohio Star

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
