I stitched this green sampler in parts so I could make videos showing my process along the way, so if you're interested in watching the action, I've posted the links to each step in order below. After doing a few in a row like this, I'm pretty sick of hearing the music that once sounded… Continue reading Wild Quilting Stitching Videos
YAY! My most recent project is now finished and if only bright green fit into my home decor .... Yet again, upon laying the whole thing out in front of me I was faced with a decision about whether or not to keep a finished quilt, but alas, it isn't my color so as… Continue reading Number 100

The Daisy quilt is finished. And once again I face a dilemma: to keep or not to keep? I love daisies! I especially love bright and colourful Gerbera daisies; I have a vase of lovely bright daisies on my piano right now. I also really love the look of a solid white quilt and the… Continue reading There’s something about white

Look at all the yummy thread I just got in the mail! My fabric has been waiting ... Since I'm still working on a couple of custom projects right now and have no new pictures to post quite yet, I thought I'd share an opinion today! I enjoy reading about what other quilters are finding… Continue reading Happy Mail!
Well, here I am again posting pictures of a new quilt before the binding is even finished. It seems I'm most inspired to write about a quilt when it's hot off the press! After I spread it all out and take a look (even I don't know what it really looks like until that point!) I'm… Continue reading Whole cloth quilt … almost
So I've received a few custom quilting jobs here, and that means it might be a while before I post a completed quilt, but just to keep you posted and involved, I thought we might play a little game. TWO OF THESE THINGS ARE NOT LIKE THE OTHERS ... Do you remember that song from… Continue reading Sandwiches Anyone?
