Full disclosure here:  I’m not Catholic. I’m Cowgirl. But if I was going to choose a religion based solely on art and visual imagery, I would totally convert. Catholics have us beat.  Hands down. (Hands up actually) Not that it’s a contest or anything. Especially the Hispanic Catholics. Because they have “Our Lady”. And they […]

  Our Lady of Guadalupe. En espanol por favor. Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. I don’t have a Spanish Keyboard to get the proper punctuations. Lo siento. I made a similar pillow earlier this year. A really nice man bought it on my Etsy Shop for his wife. Our Lady now resides in Laguna Niguel, California. […]

  I met “My Muse” in person when I made this quilt. It was a magical experience that I will never forget.   I even blogged about it here.  My Muse Was In The Room. This was my most favorite quilt I ever made at the time. I think it was my second one. I […]

 Our Lady of Guadalupe. My process for my art is this ……. I don’t really have one. I find unusual, quirky fabrics that appeal to me. Then I lay them out in my studio and look at them for awhile. (a year) Then one day they speak to me. They say something like this …… […]

  I love to doodle. I love the word doodle. I love to say the word doodle. Doodle. When I doodle on paper (which is constantly) this is what it looks like. Daydreaming. Heart shapes and swirls. I doodle in my studio when I don’t have a big project going or when I need a […]

I have a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box. Last year I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only about 1/10th of what’s in there. I would never tackle a project like these blocks even with modern fabrics.  It’s much too tedious for me. But there […]

 I’m back in the studio and does it ever feel good! I took an unintended hiatus because of marvelous Spring weather, lots of riding, playing with dogs and fish and being T.H.’s hired man.  The heat has finally driven me (willingly) up to my studio for my summer schedule. This was a little “warm-up”  project.  The […]

   I posted about this quilt a few months ago.  At the time I thought it was the ugliest quilt ever made. As it turns out, it is the most favorite one I’ve ever made. I went on an Artist’s Retreat to Santa Fe in November, having just finished the top. I showed the blog […]

  I picked up this fabric somewhere.  I have so much in my stash now that I forget. I’m pretty sure that I bought it at a little boutique fabric store in Salt Lake City.  A few fat quarters and some remnants. At first I thought I would cut up some random pieces and mix […]

I have been practicing with my new Free Motion Quilting Foot. I take one fat quarter ( 18″X22″) and make a quilt sandwich and just go for it.  I was just messing around but when I filled up the whole square, I thought ” This is almost the size of a pillow” Why not make […]
