What I most enjoy doing with my time!

Our 2020 Block-of-the-Month projects

Oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy! As much as I love to draw and prepare quilt patterns, I rarely have time to sew up all these projects. I think this year I am going to have to make the effort. If I say so myself… I’m loving our 2020 BOM projects!

Scandinavian Flowers

A new year… In looking back at what I was able to accomplish during 2019, I am happy. It seems I never have enough time to do all I would like to, but last year I came close.

The woes of an independent designer

It’s been a hard year. At times scary. Challenging, frustrating, even annoying. And also exciting, invigorating, inspiring… happy.

A panel quilt

A gazillion years ago I purchased a whole bunch of fabric panels on a super sale. Fast forward to today… and I still haven’t done anything with any of those panels.

Polka Dot Quilt

This has been a busy, busy year so far. And I haven’t been able to do as much sewing as I would have liked to. Which is about to change, as I begin to concentrate on making Christmas gifts.

Hey Birdie!

What to do when there is no space available any more for wall hanging, and you’re wanting to work on a small quilt? I recently noted I haven’t ever made quilted cushions, so that’s were my focus for small projects has turned now.

My Dream House

It’s back! The CD version of this collection, published initially by The Electric Quilt Company, was discontinued a couple of years ago. As I keep receiving requests for it, I finally got around to putting a  downloadable version together, which is now available through our online shop!

A few little lizards

    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.
