Still can’t draw a straight line!

Thursdays are dedicated to sewing/teaching/learning with my niece, Ana Lía. Though she is a relatively new quilter, she is extremely talented and catches on very quickly. It’s been fun to design and sew with someone who thinks way beyond traditional beginner quilts.

Floral whimsy… finished at last!

A seven-patch table topper

Halloween around the corner again

Over three weeks ago I started working on several Halloween projects. When I work on any one particular project involving several similar but separate elements, I usually draw and draw and draw, and then select my favorites from all those drawings.

New patterns on the horizon!

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
