Facing technique for quilts from Flying Parrot Quilts

Just popping in to share a video of how I add a facing to my quilts. If you’re not familiar with this method of finishing your quilts, it’s a fabulous way to get a borderless finish on quilts.

Elk in the Hay Field... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


Last evening the Elk herd

came down from the timber...



Their spring calves

on the other side of the fence.


The sun was setting ...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: E L E P H A N T S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

This post first appeared in February of 2015, and it's still a favorite--over 12,000 views. How is that even possible? Well anyway, I thought I'd make it easy to find, again. 

Try spelling elephants with spaces between the letters....it's strange. This morning I was reading a few blogs, as I tend to do pretty often now that I've cut back on the number of quilt magazines I purchase. I ran across Sew Fresh Quilts and had to take a closer look at her darling "Elephant Parade" quilt.


See that cute little pink guy near ...
