What a fun day in The Quilt Rambler studio at today's one day Land Locked Quilting Cruise featuring my Paradise Island pattern.

All the units and blocks are made… Continue reading Land Locked Quilting Cruise – Paradise Island

Fiesta Stars – The Rest of The Story

How many of you remember Paul Harvey, and “the rest of the story”? I remember back before the turn of the century (mid-1990’s) when I homeschooled our sons that the world stopped at noon so we could listen to Paul Harvey on the radio. In keeping with that spirit, I invite you to settle back,… Continue reading Fiesta Stars – The Rest of The Story
