Sailing Away!

Sailboat Block, QuiltAhoy, Quilters!

Next week I am traveling (though not by boat) to Denver to film a third Craftsy video!

I am very excited about this video because the emphasis is on using the quilt motifs in a variety of quilts.   I don’t want to give too much away…but the whole idea is to jumpstart your UFOs and turn them into useable quilts. We offer a variety of approaches to quilting a large selection of quilts.


While my blogging has been very inconsistent lately, I am not lost at sea…

We have spent hours writing a comprehensive script (and the tweaking continues!) and I have been working feverishly to create dozens of samples.  I hope (and expect) the results will speak for themselves!

Sailboat Block, QuiltI will have to follow the winds for the next two weeks and post when I can…please be patient!

I hope it will be smooth sailing!

What about YOU?  Are YOU working on any big projects?  How many UFOs do YOU currently have?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Yo Ho Ho!

YOUR Quilting Legacy?

Quilt Legacy

Good Morning, Quilters!

This article was published in Country Living Magazine recently and I thought it was exactly what we have been discussing lately!

How will our quilts stand the test of time?  Will anyone cherish them?

The family of Janet White of Morristown, NY certainly did!

Janet White was known for her quilt making…She made over 100 quilts for family and friends.  When she died last week at age 84, her family draped her quilts over the pews at her funeral.

Her story and her family’s love of her quilts is heartwarming!

Quilt on, Ladies!  Quilt on!

What do YOU think?  We’d LOVE to hear!

Grab a cup of coffee and a few kibbles, you’re in for a real treat…

Our pets certainly LOVE to get right in on the action…

If these pets had opposable thumbs, I think they’d be quilters!
