This is my 16th quilt. Before I tell you more about it, let me apologize for the poor quality of the photo. In my defense, I made this quilt and took this picture in June 2004. This was long before I had a good quality digital camera and the skills to edit the photos. Continue reading →
Awhile back, I shared the Crown Royal quilt I made for my husband (My Up-North Crown Royal Quilt #137), and when one of our cabin neighbor’s saw it they asked if I could make them a quilt using those same purple, flannel bags. As much as a pain in the butt as those bags are, to work with, I didn’t hesitate to say yes when Elliot asked because he is such a great kid! So began my 150th quilt project….
I figured now was the perfect time to post about the quilts I made for my 4 grandkids back in December of 2012 (2 boys — Mason and Easton and 2 girls — Blake and Tatum). Now is the perfect time to post because I just pulled these pictures out because I am going to be making a few more and I needed to refer to the picture for guidance! Continue reading →
I designed this quilt pattern for my 4th grandchild – Tatum! She was born in January 2013. At that time, my daughter Katie (Tatum’s mom) was really into yellow and gray so that is how I chose the colors. I chose the design because I had been itching to make a quilt using half-square triangles, plus chevron was just starting to get really popular. Continue reading →
I took on this enormous project as my 14th quilt (in 2004), just a few couple of years after I made my very first one. When you look at this quilt, you might not think it looks like an enormous undertaking, but considering this was the first time I tackled a quilt without having a step-by-step pattern to follow.

One of my resolutions this year is to try projects that use up some of the fabric in my stash rather than shopping for new fabric… I know, it is a tough resolution… But, I am determined to keep it.
Some of the fabrics that are available today are so amazing, it is a shame to let even a small scrap go to waste, so that I why I thought smaller projects would be perfect and jewelry certainly fits the bill! Many of these projects are also a great way for non-sewists to be able to use some of the amazing fabrics that are available without having to sew. Continue reading →
I love working on a variety of crafts and that includes crochet. Lately, I have been on a crochet kick, making scarves for all of the gals I know; but now that the weather is getting warmer, I wanted to think of something else to make. That is when I decided I wanted to try to crochet a throw rug (you can find the tutorial for making the crochet rug here). Continue reading →
Shortly after I started quilting several years ago, I started keeping a quilt journal. Not only is it a wonderful way to keep a record of every quilt I have made, but it is a fun way to see how far I have come as a quilter! I would highly recommend keeping a journal for anyone who quilts or sews. Continue reading →
What do you think of these flannel scarves??? They are about 30-inches long and about 12-inches tall. The outside is high-quality flannel and the inside is either flannel or cuddle fur (depends on the style). Some of them are even reversable! With the faux leather or suade strip and snaps, it can be worn in a variety of ways. Continue reading →
