  • New York Beauty for a New Year

    I took a New York Beauty paper piecing class in Milwaukee during the summer of 2011. The class projuect yielded a 40x40 quilt top. But I don't make wall hangings, and I don't make lap quilts. I always make full or queen size quilts. I set out to find matching or coordinating fabric. I found some...

  • The beginning!!

    I have always wanted to start a blog but I was never sure about how to go about it so I guess I will just jump right in. I haven't been quilting long (about 6 months) and I am completely self taught. I have finished 2 king size quilts so far and I am pretty proud of them. Quilting has become quite...

  • Exploring "up" or "recycling"

    I have been exploring recycling (or upcycling) existing materials into new items. For example, I used a toddler size fleece lined vest to make a winter coat for my dog Chester.

  • What do you use for a design wall?

    Everyone has a their own way of previewing the quilt they're working on. I used to lay it all out on our living room floor. My friend Rebecca would use masking tape to stick them on the wall of her sewing room. Marianne and Liz used to go down the the local Ben Franklin store here in Winterset and...

  • Chase Away the Winter Blues!

    Winter always seems so dark and dreary to me because we go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. Spring is my favorite time of year because of all new buds, flowers, baby animals, and green grass. We are currently working on the Spring 2010 issue of "Easy Quilts" so I get to pretend...

  • My first blog!

    I have never "blogged" before. I can see that it can be a useful way of communicating in this techno-age. I will upload pictures when my projects are at a recognizable place.
