What fun, and the creations are awesome. I am constantly amazed by other people’s interpretations of the designs. I’ll let them speak for themselves…well, maybe a couple of comments 🙂
Busy, busy week! Got a new sample made for a Block of the month I teach (details later), re-did some lettering for a second group of ladies that I join to play with crayons and finally finished two new patterns! Oh, and caught some Olympics action too! In honour of the Olympics, I had to […]
At around the same time I was finishing up the tree quilt design for “Old Friend, Northcott sent me another challenge. This one was right up my alley! ROCK fabric! They are introducing some new fabric in fall 2014 called Earth Rhythms and it’s gorgeous. Fabric-wide prints of rock agates in blues, browns and blacks, […]

It is another in the Fabulous Flowers series, a series designed to introduce embellishing on small quilt projects. I have lots of students who are curious about yarns and beading on quilts and have […]

I will be running a promotion to win the pattern and kit to make the quilt, interested? Details will […]
