Denim Improv

Earlier this year I completed my Denim Mondrian quilt.  While I enjoyed the pattern very much, I was a little frustrated with the amount of prep work required, and also some incomplete information in the pattern.  I still have plenty of denim left, so I developed an idea for my own denim quilt.  I used … Continue reading Denim Improv

Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along

I have decided to join Yvonne Fuchs, aka Quilting Jetgirl on a quilting adventure.  You can see her original quilt here.

Bobbin Storage

I cannot be the only quilter with a box full of half used, tangled bobbins.  Some days I feel like they are the bane of my existence.  There is never an empty one when I need it, and they are never all the way full.  Life is hard.  (I don't have a photo, because I … Continue reading Bobbin Storage

My Quilting Studio Takes Shape

This week, instead of whining, I'm going to share my progress in setting up my new studio.  It isn't finished yet, but I can clearly see that it will be up and running shortly. This is where I started with my plan.  Yes, I still use graph paper rather than an online design program.  The … Continue reading My Quilting Studio Takes Shape
