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 […]


Diamonds Forever Quilt

I am a big fan of the Kaffe Fassett Collective and one of my all time favorites are the Shell Montage Pattern by Philip Jacobs. For years I bought this pattern in every colorway I could find and saved it up for a future quilt. I found a pattern in a quilting magazine by Kaffe Fassett called Diamonds […]

Super Quilt Santa

Most years I don’t think about making any Christmas presents until it is too late in the year to start and commit to finishing. This year I went in the opposite direction and probably bit off a little more than I could chew. In the end, I took on not 1, but 3 new quilts […]

New and Different Things

So far this year a handful of projects have required me to try some new and different things. This wasn’t the result of some New Years resolution or plan on my part; it just came about that way. Although trying new things  can be challenging it is always good to stretch yourself a little. I […]


Batik Sampler Quilt – Kit # 3

I am so excited about my 3rd Unfinished kit (soon to be finished). First, it is nice to be working with a different kind of fabric. I love the Civil War reproduction fabrics, but it is nice to have a change of pace. This kit is a Sampler quilt using batik fabrics; it is pretty […]


Kit # 1 – Quilt Top Complete

I just finished putting together the top from that first kit I started on last week. It is a small quilt, only 42” x 42”. The blocks I showed last week are put on point and the quilt is assembled in rows. Here is a closeup. I loved laying out these blocks on my design […]
