Trying New Things

Full disclosure here – I’m a sucker for learning and recently I committed to the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers group hosted by Yvonne at Quilitng Jetgirl (I’m in her Quantum Quilters hive. Woot!), Cheryl at Meadow Mist Design, Stephanie at Late Night Quilter, and Terri Ann at Childlike Fascination. Wow, our hosts and the entire group is…


Firs in the Fog

I finally completed “Firs in the Fog”, my culminating project for a design class I took in 2012-13. The class covered design principles like scale, proportion, value, and balance.

10 Quilty Secrets + 1 Bonus

I first caught wind of Amy’s quilty confessional on 13 Spools via Molli Sparkles. The linky party is well worth clicking out.  It’s fun to see civil diversity of opinion. Of course I was inspired to create my own list.  And, it was surprisingly hard to keep it to eleven items.
