  • The Wizard, a Commission

    February 19, 2022 by

    Awhile back, as in 2019, I purchased fabric called “Dorothy’s Journey” featuring the story of the Wizard of Oz. I have so many personal connections to Dorothy, Kansas, friends along one’s journey and last but… Read more

  • Urban Light Quilt

    July 5, 2021 by

    What’s the saying, “better late than never”? That applies to this post! The timing of my blogpost has nothing to do with my enthusiasm for this pattern or quilt. I finished the quilt top MONTHS… Read more

  • Scenic Road Quilt

    When we think of Scenic Roads, it may bring memories of wide-open country spaces, city skyscrapers, or rocky cliffs with an ocean on the horizon. Each of us has a different place we consider scenic… Read more

  • Cozy Cabin Quilt

    April 14, 2021 by

    I’ve often admired quilt patterns by designer, Modernly Morgan, (www.modernlymorgan.com) so when she asked if I’d test this latest design, it was an easy “YES” from me. Morgan and I both have a love of… Read more

  • Sawtooth Shine Quilt

    February 19, 2021 by

    I’m often asked if I buy fabric with a specific quilt in mind. Sometimes, yes; most of the time, no. As I’ve mentioned previously, creativity comes to me by way of “the story”. If a… Read more

  • Hooked

    November 20, 2020 by

    Hooked. I don’t know how to crochet, and I can only sort of knit, but this fabric collection by Mathew Boudreaux, aka Mister Domestic, had me hooked the minute I saw the sheep. Well, the… Read more

  • Festive Forest

    September 30, 2020 by

    It’s still September, but there are Christmas trees in my studio. I am not one to jump ahead in holiday decorations, choosing instead to savor the current moment. However, when the opportunity to test a… Read more
