Propellers and Planes, my Steam Punk, hung in our guild show this week along with many fabulous quilts by members of SCVQA and BAM. It's the first, and probably only, photo of the entire quilt. The colors aren't quite right; they are much truer in the previous posts, but at least you can see the entire layout of the quilt.
There is a huge variety of fabrics in this quilt. The oldest was purchased in Boston about twenty-five years ago. The newest were purchased last year. Sue Benner gave me one of her hand-dyed pieces. After being saved ...
I am dreaming of Spring......while looking out the window at the ice which is covering the deck and steps. Hopefully we are getting close to the end of winter........I knew we shouldn't have put the shovel away! I've been working on a few flower blocks and I can't wait to start appliqueing them.

However the other one is going to take a bit ... read more
My Scrappy Affair Quilt is going to be a documentation of my fabric collection. I have collected fabrics that I love, or loved at the time ( haha ) I am sure we all have those in our stash ! Looking at Antique quilts, it is so important to leave a trail for Quilt Historians to find clue’s to our quilts.

Thinking about this has prompted me to take a strip from each of my fabrics and make a Log Cabin design Quilt. I ...read more
