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.

I have been busy quilting ufos. My machine is down for maintenance ( Thank you, honey!) so I am sewing and finishing up the squishy swap from the Quilts Your Way forum, working on handmade items for the All I Want for Chritmas (HGTV), and the Homemade Holiday swap (HGTV).

My latest finish is the squishy swap blocks. I used the Wild Geese Variation from http://www.quilterscache.com/
I just love Marcia's site for block patterns. There are 9 other ladies in this swap and all requested 12.5" blocks except one, who asked for 6.5. I was able to downsize the pattern, however, one of my lines was off on the side and it didn't line up as well as I would have liked. So I made a second block with the remaining fabric, Rolling Stone. I do like the end result.
