What's an inventory quilt you ask? Think a combo of stashbusting meets memory quilt, sorta but not exactly. It is something I know you will want to explore more! The idea began with a talented quilter named Jessica of Jessica Quilter also known on Instagram as @Jessicaquilter. Seems the good folks at Just Wanna Quilt… Continue reading Inventory Quilt Project – Future Featured Designer
This past weekend I welcomed 5 students to my Land Locked Quilting Cruise ™ event held here in my home studio - our project - Mini Lemoyne Love.

A few days ago a friend posted this on Facebook, and I took it to heart... “I know we are in the yearly recap phase on social media and everyone is announcing their biggest wins, but please don’t compare yourself… Continue reading Staying Alive Choosing Joy
I wasn't going to blog today as I have lots on the "to do list" but I found myself writing a novel on Facebook and then realizing that I blogged on that format (grin).
