Quilting the World

Last year for Christmas I finished a top for Kent that looks like the Earth from Space called Blue Marble. Kent and I are both cartographers or map makers so this quilt was especially fitting for me to make for him. I decided a while back that I would do contour or topographic lines and originally […]

Finishing up the Year

In my first blog post I challenged myself to finish 5 kits by the end of the year. I bought all these kits in 2006-2007 and wanted to finish them up before starting many more projects. Around September I began to wonder if I would be able to meet my challenge, but I am happy […]
