Another UFO Completed!

A finished UFO from spring 2013.  This wall hanging is my first free motion quilting project.  If I remember correctly, it is the Bethlehem Star or possibly a Carpenter’s Star.

DSCF1452It’s about 28″ square.

Here is the link to the original post about this project.  If you read it you will see why I was confused about the name…hmmm.

Anyway, here’s to a completed project from the past!

I have put together a Gallery of some of my quilts and quilted projects.

And, I have added a Contact page.

The Pieces Are Coming Together

Here’s a quick peek at the Jungle Quilt for my friend’s grandbaby, well a peek at some of the pieces.

DSCF1444I’m using fusible interfacing for this applique project.  This method makes very lightweight pieces that retain the fabric’s flexibility, and it gives a clean finished edge to each piece.  And, it’s fun!

Have a blessed day,



Tired of Paddling Upstream? How about Go with the Flow?

I guess all my paddling upstream caught up with me.  My sister, Dori, suggested, “Why don’t you make one of your Row patterns for a break?”

So, I did. I finished up the 2015 Row by Row Experience kit from the Quilt Haus in New Braunfels, TX.  I had started it while visiting this sister last summer, so today was the day to finish it.

The lighting isn’t so great, but you get the idea:
