A Montana Wedding

Congratulations to my son and new daughter-in-law! They had a charming wedding in Montana this past August. It rained right before the ceremony, but happily that cooled things down considerably and for their first dance they had this beautiful double rainbow above them! It was spectacular. Quilter that I am, I wanted to make themContinue reading “A Montana Wedding”

Friendship Star Christmas Wreath

My first attempt at a Christmas wallhanging! The friendship star is one of my favorite blocks, so I decided to start with that. And a scrap quilt is always a favorite! This little wallhanging measures 30″ x 30″ so it’s not too big to easily find a place to hang it this holiday season. IContinue reading “Friendship Star Christmas Wreath”

Every Which Way

Is it conceited to say I love these quilts? I don’t mean they’re the best quilts ever, but I so love flying geese and I so love bold colors set off with white, that these little baby quilts check all my boxes haha. The quilt would look great with so many colors and the layoutContinue reading “Every Which Way”

Right Angle Rainbow

I’m really excited about this quilt – it has all my favorite things! Scraps and color! And lots of them! I was inspired to make this when my son graduated from law school – got to me thinking about courthouses, so naturally the courthouse block came to mind. This version of Courthouse Steps uses theContinue reading “Right Angle Rainbow”

Red, White, and Black Argyle

I recently made my Argyle Nine Patch baby quilt pattern, in a different color way, for a young man I’ve known for over 25 years. What fun it is to see a little boy you knew back in kindergarten grow up, get married and start a family – the circle of life and all that!Continue reading “Red, White, and Black Argyle”

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. He has recently retired, and now primarily does interim work – so he can spare the stoleContinue reading ““Laughter is the hand of God…” Quilt”

Big Sky Star Quilt

Isn’t this a lovely design? I used a pattern from Plains and Pine, in Bozeman, MT, called Big Sky Star to make this quilt – I tweaked it slightly to make it bigger and give some more space around the star points – but isn’t it a striking? The main reason I bought the patternContinue reading “Big Sky Star Quilt”
