A Finish! Customer Quilt
Quilted and bound!  This pretty little quilt is actually a cheater cloth that a customer brought by last week and asked me to quilt for her grandson's graduation gift.  It was easy enough--just follow the lines she said.  She is making a set of pillow shams...

Sunday Quilt Inspiratation: Pastels
Happy late Easter everyone.  By this time, all the eggs are eaten, the baskets emptied, and masses prayed.  In honor of Easter I thought I'd use pastel colors. They remind me of the dresses we wore as little girls.  Nothing fancy or lacy, just cotton fabric...

Pin It Wednesday #61
Happy middle of the week before our Easter break.  I'm excited to have a few days off.  I have tons of paperwork and grading to do, but I might be able to get some quilting done, too.  I hope so, at least, I'm sure missing getting a few stitches in. Aren't ...

Pin It Weekly #60
I'm going to have to rename this weekly post!   Wednesday is crazy.   No.  Really.  Every. Wednesday.   But by Thursday I'm exhausted.  What will I do? I will figure it out later.  Maybe next week. Or the next.  For now here is my weekly.  With apologies. H...

Modern Monday
The La Traveling Quilt Bee is getting under way.  In fact, I've made my first block and will send it off in a day or two.  I am not sure that it's what I want, but I am working on a customer quilt that has a deadline, so my block will have to wait.   There ...

Life is Peachy
LOVE peaches!  I don't mean that I like them.  Don't mean peaches are my favorite fruit (they are!).  No, I mean something much more.   Given the opportunity, I will pick peaches over just about any other food.  Well, almost any other thing. (Thank you, Goo...
