  • Organic Acorns Quilt Finished!

  • New Quilt Books on the Market

    There have been a whole mess of new quilt books coming out these past few months, and I seem to have developed a collect-them-all urge.  I’ve been bringing them home from…

    I’m working on quilting another jelly roll project.  And this time it’s spiky FMQ a la Elizabeth Hartman. Wait for it.…
