Baby Sawyer, the second child of some friends of mine, was born yesterday, a couple of days early, but that was a blessing to my dear friends who we anxiously awaiting his arrival.
I wanted to make Sawyer a quilt and since I have known about this for at least six months, you would think I had already finished it. But, no, I had other things in the works and I did not start this quilt until Saturday night, yes, August 16. Actually, I might have started a few days earli...Read Full Post »

Today, I'm very lucky to be featured on the Emma's Garden Blog Tour. I'm so glad you stopped by.

I first met Patty when she came to Houston Modern Qui...Read Full Post »

Most mornings, I scroll through the numerous emails that have come in over night. I'm sure you have the same issue that there are more than you can possibly read in your inbox each day... so most of the time, I scan for important ones from friends, family and fellow bloggers and then maybe read a few of the others that have interesting subjects.

Some of these took on a new life as I tried various changes and added my own touch to patterns I learned on Craftsy from classes such as Quilting the Negative Space by Angela Walters.

If I want a laugh, I just have to look at myself to see all the funny things I do. Last Saturday, I went to a great workshop taught by our own Cathy W. of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild. She taught us how to make a lovely scrappy trip around block and quilt using a strip piecing technique, both fun and simple.
I had selected a red, white and black theme for my quilt, packed up all my fabrics, a...Read Full Post »

Do you ever think about doing something, but just never get around to doing it? Well, that is what I have been doing for a while....thinking about blogging. So, today, I decided, it is about time I start this blog.
This week went by so fast. On Monday, I learned to time my longarm. (Every longarm quilter needs to do this eventually.) I was so fortunate to have the help of the 24/7 ...Read Full Post »
