About me

I have been making fabric crafts since the 70s, started hand piecing and quilting in the 80s, and have been machine piecing for the last seven years. My pile of UFO tops are slowly diminishing with the help of my longarm quilting machine, an Ansley 26.

Finished quilting this for Melanie. Didn't she do a great job with her top. Great wall-hanging.

Springville Retreat

My new flimsy from the retreat.

Springville Retreat with Linda Ballard

Awesome weekend with friends and new acquaintances. What a great group of ladies. Catered meals. Linda Ballard for a teacher. Sewing for three days and a beautiful new flimsy. Hope it doesn't stay on my to be quilted pile for too long.

Part Five

Part five of Ripples and Reflections is the easiest of the blocks so far. Create a square in a square with the green batiks and than surround with magenta. But wait, you get to make 16 of these 7 1/2" blocks.
Moving on to work on part 6.

Part Four

Part four of Ripples and Reflections is the mostly olive blocks. Four of these finish at 7 1/2" each.
My blocks are suppose to be on point, which they are, except in this picture.

Part three

Moving along now to Part three, called the mostly magenta block. Love the blue/magenta floral batik in the center. There are 4 of this block, 10 1/2" square.

Part Two

Block two of Ripples and Reflections is a beauty with the contrast of light blue and magenta. You make 4 of these blocks and each measure 10 1/2.
