Prayer Flags

Prayer flags are part of the ancient Buddhist tradition. Traditionally, they are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. it is believed that “the words and symbols printed on the flags (the prayers) are spread throughout the universe as the flags flutter in the wind. Everyone who is touched by that wind is touched by the prayers. The wind spreads the intentions through the world, extending happiness, goodwill, and peace.” (Prayer Flags: Make Banners of Hope and Peace from Fabric Scraps and Fibers, Vivika Hansen DeNegre, Editor, Quilting Arts® Magazine, 2014)

Flower Power Quilt Along

Like any other quilt maker, my #1 “complaint” is the lack of time to sew everything I would like to sew. So when it comes to other designers’ BOMs and quilt alongs, I tend to admire from a distance, and very, very rarely participate. I have enough UFOs as it goes, and don’t want to add to the pile.

    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.
