First Night

As we get ready to leap into 2015 I wanted to post a quick note reflecting on my year and wishing everyone a happy new one. This has been an exceedingly tough year for me. My grandfather died in February, I had shoulder surgery in April, Jewel (my cat) got sick in August and I finally had to have her …

Finished: Modern Alphabet

  For this quilt I used Tula Pink’s Modern Alphabet quilt pattern. I made this quilt for my friend Laura who was pregnant with her first child over the summer. This quilt was really simple to put together, which was good, because I made it while I was in the early stages of recovery from my shoulder surgery. I probably …

My quilt for the June edition of the Nurture Circle of do. Good Stitches is finally complete. This summer has had some serious setbacks for me, but I’m absolutely thrilled to have this done. I think it turned out amazing and I have my bee-mates to thank for that. I asked for brightly colored blocks and I received enough to …

Finished: Mosaic for do. Good Stitches

    This quilt was formed from blocks collected as part of my month for the Nurture Circle of do. Good Stitches all the way back in March. I used the Mosaic block which is a paper pieced pattern. I asked for brights, a fussy cut in the center, and low volume intervening rounds. I really like how bold this …

Finished: Denyse Schmidt Wedding Sampler

You may remember that just before my surgery, during Mid-Atlantic Mod and the week afterward I pushed hard to finish my Denyse Schmidt wedding sampler top. Well, it was finished beautifully by my longarmer up in New York and I was able to take it with me on the plane to Santa Fe, New Mexico when I went to their …

My cousin got married in a beautiful wedding last spring. At the time I had only been quilting about six months and I wanted to make a quilt but I didn’t want to step on anyone else’s toes if someone more experienced than I had already offered. I pulled my cousin aside during the reception and nervously asked if she …

I have several finished projects that I need to post, but I thought I’d start with a quick one.

Robert Kauffman provided Essex Linen for us to use. The pattern is from Elizabeth …
