This Piece is Over-Quilted!
But, that's alright
because the piece is mine, and after all, I planned it that way. But,
seriously, on this piece there are so many different motifs and
styles of quilting designs: Straight line quilting,
stitch-in-the-ditch, curved crosshatching, feathers...

Stuffing Appliques
I'd like to show you how
to give a little dimension to appliques using cutouts of wool
batting. The first picture shows the paper patterns that I traced
from the quilt top. I pinned them to two layers of wool batt and cut
them out. I use quilt basting spray...

Made in America
I've been away from this
blog for waaaaay tooooo long! But, let's see what I've been up to. This is a Made
in America embroidery designed by Claudia Dinnell. My

term “nightmare.” I've neve...

Strolling through the garden
This wonderful applique
piece did not get finished before the maker died unexpectedly. So a
couple of her friends finished it and asked me to quilt it for the
family. I was honored to do so. First of all, a big shout
out to longarm quilter, Susan Lawson, wh...

Paradise in Blooms

Ta Da Done!
Two and a half years after
I started it, my blue and white medallion quilt is finally finished! After discovering the
Zentangle art form several years ago, I knew I wanted to use some of
the designs as inspiration for quilting. And, that is what I have

Last Row...
...and only a border to
go! While the two sleigh
blocks are my favorites because of their detail, this Hawaiian-style
cut of the Holy Family is so special. Isn't it beautiful in its
simplicity? And, who wouldn't love
poinsettias in a Bean Pot?!!! And, Chris...

Blocks 9 – 12
People have complimented
me on my photos for this blog. The quality of inexpensive cameras
today really helps. But, the best aspect of my photography is
lighting. And, I take no credit for that. You see, my studio has a
big picture window just to the left o...

Blocks 5 – 8
So, here we are again with Row 2. Block 5 has lots of space,
so I filled it up with paisleys. Sweet. Block 6 also has space, so
we have pebbles with occasional shells. Block 7 – Oooh, I'm so
happy with how this turned out. After outlining the interior petal...
