  • Home Again….

    Back on my way to Portland. It’s been a lovely trip but it’s always nice to come home. Not that I get to rest; next Monday, March 10, I am presenting a program at the Northwest Quilter’s meeting on quilts made from Taupe fabrics – plenty of eye candy.

    The following Saturday, I am giving a workshop on Animal Totems – creating a totem quilt with Seminole Piecing and reverse applique. The workshop is full (with a waiting list) but take heart, I will be offering this class at local quilt shops.

    There will be a variety of totems – a salmon, a jaguar, wolf, lizard, bear, rabbit, crow… and others as well. See some pictures of finished samples below.

  • What a week!

    I’ve heard it said “Time flies whether you are having fun or not – so you may as well be having fun.” We sure had fun and the week flew by. Before we realized it, the week was over. My students all graduated with A+ and don’t they look wonderful posed next to their quilts in progress?
