Since my surgery I’ve continued to crank out hexies. I now have 200 basted 1″ hexagons ready to be sewn into flowers. At the DCMQG meeting on Saturday my friend Jessie talked to me a little about my 36 degree diamonds. The news wasn’t great.

I wanted to share a few quick shots of the March do. Good Stitches top I put together from everyone’s mosaic blocks. They look amazing. I’ve sent it off to the longarmer since I won’t be able to quilt it myself for a while. I hope to talk one of my friends into helping with a photoshoot when it’s complete. …

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.

Hi Nurture Circle! I’m getting this post out early as my surgery is scheduled for Friday and I’m not sure how much typing I’m going to be able to do for a while. Hopefully my recovery will be faster than I think it will be. For June I’m asking for four 60 degree triangle blocks measuring 8.5″  tall if you …

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

WIP Wednesday

I’ve had a string of busy weeks, and I’ve been fitting in sewing and fun where I can. On Saturday the 8th I went to see my friend Katie give a trunk show and lecture at the Anacostia Arts Center where our quilts are displayed. My friend Nicole had a pop-up shop in the gallery that was a mini version …
