My studio. This is where the magic happens friends. My studio. Which is just an extra room in our walk-out basement. I think we originally planned it to be an “exercise” room. As if that was ever going to happen. I don’t think it really qualifies as a basement. It’s just the lower level of […]

I have a muse. I think everybody does. According to my online dictionary a muse is a noun and a verb. My “Muse” is my sister goddess who presides over my art. She visits me while I’m “musing”. I thought I might share some of my process with you. I don’t really have a process, […]

If “Cowgirl-Red” married “Dia de los Muertos”  that’s what you would get. Ladies and Gentlemen, I announce the birth of ……… “El Gringo Cowboy” “cowboy” pronounced  “kuh-BOY “ Say it now…… El Gringo Cowboy ! If I had a little cowgirl or cowboy close by I could use them for a model. That would be what […]

Some of you may remember my old friend, The Amish Cowgirl Well, I said goodbye to her Saturday. It’s hard to say goodbye when you’ve been friends for so long.   She was my first vintage quilt. I sold her to someone who really wanted and appreciated her and will cherish her in her home. […]

Everyone has a dream. I’ve had many.   About 7 years ago I started “Cowgirl-Red”. I wasn’t sure where she was going to go.   I set goals. I got coaching. I planned. I blogged. I sewed. I lived my crazy life.  Cowgirl-Red is pretty much just like me. (Actually, she is me.)  She pretty much […]

 I call this one “The Story of My Life” quilt. The pattern is an old one called “Trip Around the World”. I bought it at an antique store in Wichita the same day I saw the Surfer Jesus . “Trip Around the World”  is apropos for my life.   Because ….. I’ve been everywhere, man.    […]

 My name is Terah and I have serious addiction …. to vintage quilts. Not all vintage quilts…..  Just the ones that are unfinished. Unusual. That speak to me. That need some TLC. That want to be brought back out into the light. From wherever they were hiding. To fulfill the purpose “She” intended.   A […]

This was originally posted in 2011.  Under the title “Vintage Quilt Blocks.”  I promised you another post when I finished the backing and binding so here it is. (3 years later…..  don’t judge, …. I’ve been busy) I know I’ve said this before. But this may very well be my favorite project to date. In […]

This blog post was originally published in 2012. Which was before the  “Great Escape”  of 2013.  I finished the quilt. I’ve got my mojo back! Quilting for Karma   …..  2014 I had a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box.  I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only […]

Staying with the “Our Lady” theme …..   I hope I’m not doing anything insensitive here.  I’m not Catholic, but I have consulted my Catholic girlfriends, and I have spent lots of time in Mexico. I love the art form of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is one of the fabric art panels I bought […]
