Scrap Time!
Crazy things happen when scraps are involved.  This is the story of the crazy scrap quilt that just is sorta happening in my head and hands with nothing on paper. No plan, just color and texture.   So, I made a failure quilt.  It was a good idea, but not en...

Just enjoy some pictures of quilts on a lovely spring evening    I don't have much to say.  Sometimes, there are not words... Back in February, I started the quilting on Tire Track s.   Finally, I made myself finish. This is a very large quilt - 110 x 93.  ...

I quilt. I parent. I teach. I'm alive.
Introduction
My grandmother showed me a box of her scrap fabric at age 8 and let me create clothes for my Barbies with freedom!  Before that summer ended, she had shown me paper piecing for quilts, and we together created a something I still have to this day!
