It is with a heavy heart that I made the decision to cancel my Onboard Quilting Excursion!™ for the November 2020 Quilting with The Rambler & The Redneck event. Our cruise attendees have been notified. (Please check your email for the cruise newsletter and helpful link.) It's not easy to let go of a dream,… Continue reading Not According to Plan
Today I am truly missing my students. I miss the excitement and joy of teaching ~ sharing the things I have learned, passing on the joy ~ hoping to make quilting contagious! Contagious - now there's a word of the year. One can only hope it's the word of the first part of the year!… Continue reading Missing You
I woke up rather emotional today. I’m sure you can relate. As the country song goes “some days are diamonds some days are coal.” I struggled to wrap my brain around this isolation thing ~ I mean, seriously, I have worked from home the majority of my life, so why am I finding this so… Continue reading Fine Dining ~ At Home

Warning Will Robinson, transparancy ahead, proceed with caution! First Things First - Chasing Rainbows It all sorta started Sunday morning heading to rehearsal prior to the… Continue reading Chasing Rainbows
At the speed of lightening...or so it seems as we have had more than our fair share of lightening lately! Forgive me dear readers, it's been 15 days since my last ramble...and I promise I've not been muzzled (although some may wish that could happen every now and then)...life has been a whirlwind (and thankfully… Continue reading How Fast Can The Quilt Rambler Ramble?
March is entering the books with all sorts of crazy fun "March madness" going on in and around The Quilt Rambler studio. I have high hopes for lots of accomplishments (aka deadlines) for the next few weeks. It's been dreary weather lately so naturally it's a good time to sew. But then again, anytime is… Continue reading What’s Up March!?!
I’ve shared before that I’m an endless summer sort of gal. I love the thoughts of a tropical vacation - perhaps that’s why I love making my quilts with bright tropical colors.
