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.

Fall Table Topper/Wall hanging

I started creating these blocks with fall 6.5 squares from a swap several years back. I added two shades of yellow, cut my blocks, twisted the pieces, sewed them back together and ended up with a pile of blocks and no idea of where to go from there.
I am participating in an HGTV Handmade swap and decided to use my fall blocks to create this wall hanging. It finished somewhere under 50 inches square. I used a Valdani hand dyed varigated thread for quilting a maple leaf pattern. The quilting was pretty but my machine was very fussy with this thread...yeah for Sullivan spray. Nickilee is the new owner of this piece.
