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”

The main reason I bought the patternContinue reading “Big Sky Star Quilt”

More Quilts in the Time of Covid

More quilt finishes for my personal “Quilts in the Time of Covid” coffee table book (I’m only half joking – I think I will make myself a photo book to commemorate the year from hell. Although it was a very prolific year in terms of quilting!) These next three quilts all use flying geese –Continue reading “More Quilts in the Time of Covid”

Baby Quilts and Wall Hangings

After completing the 100 Day Project of embroidery, I have jumped back into quilting. It was worthwhile taking a break and doing something different creatively – but I am very glad to be back to my true love of quilting. And due to Covid19, my Artist in Residence status continues, with plenty of time toContinue reading “Baby Quilts and Wall Hangings”
