My Very Own Quilt Coat

I’ve been watching on Instagram as many a quilter has shared a completed quilt coat, getting more envious by the post. I am not a garment maker – nothing I’ve ever attempted has fit. I tried to make cute little outfits when my kids were little – and they wore those attempts, because, well, IContinue reading “My Very Own Quilt Coat”

“Laughter is the hand of God…” Quilt

Some of my dearest friends recently asked me to make a wall hanging for them, using one of his Presbyterian minister stoles. Many moons ago he was our pastor, and while at our church our families became close.

I’ve really enjoyed reaching out to people and getting to hear back from them – and what a great time to beContinue reading “100 Day Project 2021 Is Complete!”

Rainbow Lone Stars

(and a new tutorial) I started out making just the purple star with the intent to turn it into a wall hanging, but I was having such fun I decided I would make a four star baby quilt, then I thought I’ll make a six star lap quilt… and here I am with a nineContinue reading “Rainbow Lone Stars”

Quilted Postcards: 31-50 Halfway There!

The first 50 days of this year’s 100 Day Project have flown by – I finally chose a project I am happy to be doing every day. In fact, I’ll miss sending postcards when the next 50 are all signed, sealed and delivered. I’ll admit to having times during the previous two year’s 100 DayContinue reading “Quilted Postcards: 31-50 Halfway There!”
