Good Morning, Quilters!

It seems The Inbox Jaunt email system is working again–I’m not sure what happened and I don’t know how it got fixed…Thank you to all who sent messages about their email status-it really helped!


It is very likely it is YOUR email server.  There are many reasons an email can be blocked… I found that my own email (Outlook) has been putting posts from The Inbox Jaunt straight into the trash–not even Junk Mail, where I might check for them–straight to trash.  I suggest you Google search blocked or trashed emails for your email server and follow the directions to unblock.



Last week we met Deborah Boschert and reviewed her new book, Art Quilt Collage-

To enter the giveaway, we all considered what our personal symbols might be…Feathers, trees, flowers, teacups, dogs, cats, coffee, waves….

Perhaps YOU could incorporate your symbol into your next quilt using Deborah’s techniques?!

Be sure to check out American Quilter Magazine on news stands now.  (or subscribe HERE)  American Quilter has a new editor, Ann Hammel–(Congratulations, Ann!)–and is even better than ever!  There are several quilt patterns, a great article about Kaffe Fassett (rhymes with Safe Asset), a pattern and article, Quilt Class Etiquette by the lovely, Kimberly Einmo and The Pumpkin and Oak Leaf border–step-by-step tutorial by yours truly.  

I’m sure YOU will be inspired!


We had a family craft project last weekend, making more than 25 velvet pumpkins.  We came up with a system and I’ll share a tutorial soon.

Try to  get your hands on some pumpkin stems-raid a local farm, ask at the farmers’ market or buy a pumpkin, gourd or squash and save the stems.  Let the stems dry out.   I will have the tutorial ready for Thanksgiving-so save your Halloween pumpkins and ask the neighbor for theirs…

Tomorrow we’ll be doodling an “Essential Doodle” and Friday–The Dog and Quilt Show!

Next week….an exciting addition to my sewing room!

Happy Quilting,
