All I can say is WOW!  I’ve had a complete BLAST with this quilt!  Maybe it’s because I made it for friends… maybe because the parameters were narrower… maybe the colors soothed me… maybe it’s because I tried many new things (and was successful at them)… more than likely it was a combination of all […]

Today its “surfaces” that are catching my eye… let’s indulge in a little eye-candy  shall we?   On closer look at everyday things, these surfaces have much to tell.  Patterns don’t have to be predictable and dull, the bark on a tree is much more than a field of brown, the sheen of glass is […]

First, I’d like to thank you for your name suggestions for my next baby quilt.  I LOVE “New Earth,” so thank you Paula K for your suggestion.  As for that deer, it’s from a line of baby bedding called Willow Organic.  I’m hoping to create an image inspired by this little template… one that does […]

In a way I can pinpoint when my recent series of baby quilts started… it happened when I began thinking of a quilt for a new baby in my world.  Not mine… whew… a few friends of mine.  Seems like so long ago we started on the journey they are taking… I remember all too […]
