Log Cabin Quilt

I haven't been very active on my blog lately because we have had a glorious spring here on the southeast coast and I have been spending my extra time outside (running, fishing, yard work, ect.). This is my favorite time of year but soon it will be very hot so I'm taking advantage of it... Continue Reading →

Today I attended one of my area’s largest quilt shows, the Cobblestone Quilters Guild 2018 Quilt Show in Charleston S.C. I always look forward to this show because it’s only held every other year and it showcases some terrific talent. Awhile back I posted about being in a pattern test group and I’m happy to...

Convex Illusions

I love taking quilt classes and I’ve taken a lot of them over the years.

The Busiest Time of Year!

We are officially empty-nesters and it’s made me a little depressed, especially during the holidays. I was a homeschool mom for 12 years so I... Continue Reading →

Quilt Care Instructions

I've gotten into the habit of adding care instructions with all of the quilts I make for others. It is a simple list of rules that should be followed to care for a quilt but I can honestly admit I break most of them. For instance, I always put my quilts in the dryer because... Continue Reading →

Thrift Store Finds

  Do you like to shop at thrift stores? I grew up with a mom who loves to thrift shop. In fact, I took her for a colonoscopy yesterday and she asked to stop at a thrift store on our way home from the hospital! From an early age I remember getting up early and... Continue Reading →

Two Bargello Quilts

I finally finished piecing the two bargello quilts that I have been working on for quite awhile. The first one, Wind Song, has 24 fabrics and is a king sized quilt. I started working on it over a year ago but put it aside for awhile to work on other projects. I designated this year... Continue Reading →
