Except for quilting. My knowledge of quilts was reduced to photos from magazines and glimpses provided sometimes in movies. Not enough information to be able to make one myself. Read More »

Every January we offer a couple of member-only and one free block-of-the-month project. And a free Christmas BOM starting in July. We post the dates in which blocks are published on each BOM page, and send out a newsletter with reminders. In December we actually send out 3 reminders for visitors to download the blocks by December 28, at which time we take the projects down as we prepare to post the new BOMs come January 1st.

    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.
