  • Daisy Cottage Baby Girl

    Found a deal online for some charm squares, which I have never used. Made this sew together so quickly, in time for a special little girl. Enjoyed using colors I normally do not touch. The Daisy Cottage Fabric from Bee In My Bonnet feels great in your hand.

  • Bottled Rainbows Number 2

    I just love using up scraps and Rachel Hauser's Bottled Rainbows let me showcase the last bits of favorite fabrics. And Quilt As You Go lets me keep some color forms made up and add fabric to a color way all the time. About to start another set.

  • Winter Warmth

    Desperately needed something bright for a long winter and pink and orange hit the spot. My first ever quilted top (rather than tied). It has its problems, but a great learning experience. Half square triangles were fun to revisit after several years.

  • Bye-Bye Blues

    The cool color scraps were too much to store...so I made them go away along with a bit of my own life blues. I adore strings and paper piecing. This took two weekends from first square to quilted and bound. My $ job didn't get in the way, either.

  • Framed

    Fabrics too pretty to cut up into small bits.

  • spring sampler

    Random blocks from blogs I stumble across. It started as a pillow, then two pillows...then became a nine rectangle block quilt.

  • Green Aluminum Foil

    Some that saw this said it looked like Aluminium Foil, so that is as good a name as any. I was inspired to create this from things shared from: Film In The Fridge! Love her work. http://www.filminthefridge.com/ But the real inspiration was this was my first 'pieced on paper" quilt since my first one - at age 8. I made that one with my grandmother

  • Browns and Black

    My adaptation of Elisa Wilson's quilt featured in a Hoffman ad from last year. I thought it would be easy like a log cabin using strips, but noooo, the directional strips tried to get all wonky on me. But it did satisfy my desire to work with browns. I played with different household items for dying fabric last year. The quilt still smells a bit

  • Oriental Kaleidoscope

    Started summer 2011, finished summer 2012. My dear friend and neighbor Mary shares a new piecing method she calls 4-patch posie. Then, knowing I don't have a walking foot and don't even try to quilt - tells me about 'quilt as you go'! What a change in my sewing she shared that day. I love you Mary! I really couldn't afford to buy

  • My First Quilt

    1989. I had no idea what I was doing. I was 26 years old. I had pieced on a paper with my grandmother 14 years ago. I had survived Home Ec at age 13, actually wearing the dress I created without disaster. But my amazing husband gave me a sewing machine for Christmas, sew... I wanted to use it. I didn't know fabric, I didn't know traditional
