The Busiest Time of Year!

  I love Christmas, but this year has been tough! I think the reason for the difficulty is because this is the first year my husband and I are alone. 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 →

Memory Quilts

I love making memory quilts (quilts from clothing of deceased loved ones). I usually spend my time praying and reflecting on the life of the lost loved one while sewing.
