Welcome to my quilting blog! My combined love of sewing and a degree in art brought me to quilting 25+ years ago. I love all the various styles quilting encompasses - art quilts, traditional, woolwork, etc. I have designed my own art quilts and patterns and also love traditional designs (especially needle-turn applique!) So come along on my journey and let's see what quilts we can create.

Happy Easter and a Free Download!
I wanted to do a quick post to say Happy Easter to those of you celebrating this weekend! Spring is finally in the air. Even though we got snow this week - but we won't talk about that.
14 inch pillows
I made these really cute Easter pillows a couple of years ago. They were so much fun - I made three! The carrot center is paper pieced from a pattern by Deb Karasik. She has the pattern on her web site as a free download. I have included a link below.
After completing the paper pieced carrots, I just added fabrics around the outside until I got to the desired size. I added some machine quilting and some big stitch hand quilting and I was done. Easy - peasey!!

I hope you enjoy your holidays and Spring!!
Lucy decided she wanted to make my Easter table topper into a comfortable bed for herself.
