My new pin cushion (and a cute baby quilt…)

I needed a new pin cushion.  Yes n-e-e-d-e-d.  I was using some old thing that I recovered a while back and I didn't pay much attention to the fact that it was ugly as long as it worked.  But then when I started using the pretty Clover flower head pins from my mom, they made… Continue reading My new pin cushion (and a cute baby quilt…)

Downton Abbey Quilts

I found myself buying a large set of Downton Abbey fat quarters from Andover Fabrics at a quilt show I attended in the spring.  Now go ahead and call that stashing if you must, but seriously, they were all packed up inside this too cute little quilted bag with a special Downton Abbey label on… Continue reading Downton Abbey Quilts

Keeping in Touch

I don't have a new quilt to post yet because I've been working on a couple of custom quilting projects that I can't even share right now; they were brought to me by ladies who are giving the completed quilts as gifts in the near future and with the way things go around the internet… Continue reading Keeping in Touch
