Hello, Old Friend!

It's lovely to spend some time with you, again!


Quilt room is finally clean after a hectic holiday season. Enjoying some log cabins on this snowy, Winter Michigan Sunday.


I always have at least one pick-up-and-put-down project going at a time -- usually a scrap quilt. I've been working on this one on-and-off for probably 12 years! ��

The Splendid Sampler Sew-Along

Have you joined the movement yet?



So far over 3500 quilters from around the world have! 

85 quilters (designers and industry leaders) have contributed 100 6-inch blocks for this epic quilting adventure. Starting on Valentine's Day, two blocks a week will be published. Techniques include piecing, paperpiecing, appliqué, embroidery, and English Paperpiecing. 

The blocks will remain available until March 2017 when they will be gathered into a That Patchwork Press book. 

I signed up the moment I realized Pat Sloan was a contributor! Find out more details here: http://www.thesplendidsampler.com

I Wish All the World were Quilters

I posted this four years ago today and thought it appropriate to share....


I wish all the world were quilters.
We could bind our wounds,
Mend our differences,
Harmonize our colors, and
Blend our borders.
