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 […]

I bought these two fat quarters in Salt Lake City last summer. Anything with a Paint Horse on it is instantly mine. I’m just glad this time it was only $6.00 worth of fabric. It was speaking to me……  “Pillow Time” A nice little afternoon project on Thanksgiving weekend. “OK guys, I’m going upstairs to […]

I was going to call this post “The Ugliest Quilt Ever”. But that’s really not fair, nor is it true.  These vintage quilt blocks came in a boot box full of treasures I bought from a custom quilt shop.I laid them out in my studio and stared at them for  weeks.  I think these fabrics […]

I had 32 blocks left from the Crazy Quilt of my last post. I wanted this one to be larger and different. I chose to use some black “sashing” to accentuate the blocks. “Sashing” is basically cutting 3″ strips of black fabric scraps and framing the blocks like window panes. It’s a fun and mindless […]

  Creative Everyday Challenge  Art Everyday Month I feel like a cheater.  I bought these wild quilt blocks from my custom quilter. She bought them from her mother, who bought them from a craft sale. I did not pay $20 for them. It was more like $10. I would never have the patience to put […]

 This is my first official post from my new website that went live yesterday. I am determined to publish this post today. I think I could have made this quilt …… twice ….. with the time it has taken me to post this. I may have even cried once and yelled at the dog. The […]

After my recent epiphany that quilting is like Canned Soup  (artistically speaking, of course, for myself only) I know I can do this myself and it will taste better. I purchased one item.  A Bernina Free Hand Quilting Foot for $40. Then I watched a couple videos on YouTube. This is our maiden voyage.  I am in […]

In June I blogged about my non-process of putting this quilt together. Fiber Art 10, My Muse Was In The Room I was so excited about it at the time, then I let it sit for three months before I took it to my Custom Quilter to finish.  I am in a quandary as to […]
