I’m finally getting to some of those old projects in my studio that I’ve been long putting off!  Today’s accomplishment was a block for Yahaira as part of our Mid Mod Quilt Bee.  This is the last of blocks due for this bee and there is a part of me that’s sad to see it […]

It’s been quite a week for me!  Medically that is.  Let’s see we have one broken bone, one surgery, stitches, another doctor’s appointment, immunizations… a cold… not me, thankfully.  The good news is everybody should be just fine!  Now, with the kids fully back in school I have the house to myself and I can […]

I blame Cheryl for this one… she sent our group, the Mid Mod Quilt Bee, fabric packs and pretty much said go for it!  When I read her instructions panic set in.  I had absolutely no idea what she was going for!  So I read the instructions over… and over… still nothing.  Guess where this […]

I finished my second assignment for the Mid Mod Quilting Bee!  This time it’s Jess’ turn.  As you can tell, I ran out of fabric at the end.  It’s an easy fix on her end.  Hope she likes it!

I’ve been invited to join an online quilting bee called the Mid Mod Quilt Bee.  It’s a different kind of quilting bee, instead of gathering at a someone’s house, we gather virtually… online, and instead of everybody participating in the quilting of a quilt, we are all piecing blocks which are then put together and […]
