Many, many quilters will probably have this mystery quilt on their design walls this week. It is Celtic Solstice by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. It’s not too late to start and you can find out all about it here.
I went back and forth over whether to start this or not, then decided what the heck, what’s one more project. Bonnie is using orange, blue, green and gold with a neutral background and I knew those colors would be hard to find in my stash so I went with what I have. I haven’t pulled all the ...read more
Hello Friends, I am most excited to share with you about my Nature Walk quilt being selected as cover quilt of American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2014 Calendar!
Nature Walk differs slightly from my usual featured work in that it is a scrappy quilt that uses fabrics from my stash. You can see the general schematic of the quilt in the initial design image below. Do you have any blue and green scraps you need to use up in your stash? Perhaps Nature Walk would entice you to use up those tiny and not so tiny scrap ...read more
So last year , I was unable to get my sister or my cousin Kristin a quilt finished before Christmas, so instead I gave them the option of a quilt Or Christmas Stockings. they both chose stockings ! So on Friday when I made my Birthday delivery, I also delivered Christmas in November to my sister ! The Stockings are LAST years gift , the tree skirt is THIS years ! I wanted them delivered early so she can use them this year !
The tree skirt started out attempting to modify the Moda Bakeshop tree Skirt and failing so I improvised , then ended up making ...read more

Hello! It's that time of year again, for those of us who only wish we were in Houston to celebrate the Blogger's Quilt Festival! This is my third time to participate. Thanks so much to Amy for hosting :)
I am entering Springtime Riot in the Bee quilt category. I joined the Nurture circle of do. Good Stitches in February and working with these ladies has been the most wonderful experience! The level of commitment and skill is far beyond what I had experienced in previous bees and most of all, it's just a lot of fun making ... read more
Is this a new table runner pattern???? Nope, it is the start of a tote bag but I thought I might get a giggle out of you if you thought it was a runner. When I'm not out in the living room using the quilt frame this is the little project I'm working on now.
I wasn't sure which way to word the title of this blog, It's a black quilt with a holiday dahlia -- not a black dahlia! Anyway, this was a "practice" quilt for me. I've never done a giant dahlia pattern, ribbon border, or a black quilt. I wanted to make something pretty for the holidays, just in case it turned out ok!
The dahlia pattern was a bit of a challenge, once I got the hang of it, it was much easier. There is a way to make a secondary pattern so that you see the "petals" that ... read more

For the past week, I have spent an amazing visit with my mom. We went out and about every day that she was here. I even had the extreme honor of giving my own mother a tattoo ! Yes, I am also a tattoo artist, but I have to say that giving one to my mother was one of my proudest moments. I also gave my cousin her first two tattoos on the same night. It was a girly bonding night that I will never forget !
Amid all of the excitement and busy days of the past week, I did manage ...read more
