This has been on my bucket list since the turn of the century when I was first introduced to their catalog by my quilting friend Trish.

Monday Musings: City Culture 2

When I worked in a quilt shop, back around the turn of the century, I was always delighted when the UPS man wheeled in boxes of new fabrics! We'd almost mow him down to get to the treasure boxes to be the first one to open them up to take a peek! I can almost… Continue reading Monday Musings: City Culture 2

Monday Musings: Try a New Technique

Ever heard the saying "A day late and a dollar short"? That's kinda today's Monday musings as I am actually two days late in posting my March Island Batik Ambassador project.

Quilt Story Saturday – Why I Love Quilting With Friends

I love quilt retreats, guild sew-ins, or just setting aside time for quilting with friends, don't you? It's almost indescribable!

Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

Today's Quilt Story Saturday is a tale of a quilt I created and called "My Dangling Carrot".  Leftover orphans blocks were included in the quilt featured a few weeks ago called My Colorful Past. It certainly doesn't seem like 10 years ago, well, technically a little over 9 based on the time of year. Settle… Continue reading Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday

I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. The Jetsons and Yogi Bear were among my favorites. I especially liked the way Jane could look so perfectly made up when talking on her futuristic phone. If I could make that come true I might be tempted to use FaceTime or Skype....until then, no thank… Continue reading My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday
