Quilting in July
It is only mid-July, but it has already turned into a long, hot summer here. This is today's view across the valley -- we actually can see across the valley today, as the smoke is a bit lighter that it has been.  No wildfires threatening the immediate area,...

A small finish
It is little, but it's done! Three pinwheel blocks make a little wall-hanging. I made the blocks one day to try out an idea and then I tucked them away and forgot about them.  When they showed up again I realized they were exactly what I needed.  The finish...

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks #14
A new edition of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks comes out this week! It looks like this: Volume 14 -- on newsstands about November 15 So, why am I so excited about this, you ask?  Because I have a block in this issue, that's why!  And not only that, my block is on...

Pondering the scraps
Lots of things I SHOULD be doing in the sewing room, but this week the overflowing box of plaids caught my eye again.  I decided to work on "just the small bits" and try to get rid of the messy part of the collection. I cut strips 6 1/2" long and assembled ...
