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.

Candy Cane Bouquet - Done!
I know I haven't been in blogland much lately.. and I am sure I have missed some wonderful posts, but I have just been super busy (Like all of us this time of year!) with a new boss at work and all that comes with that! But I wanted to share with you a UFO finish! Yahoo!
This quilt, Candy Cane Bouquet, by Laurie Simpson was on my 2014 UFO list. So I am really happy to have it done and actually hanging up for this holiday season!
Love the mix of cotton and wool.
I started this quilt last year. You can see the post about it here. The pattern was in the Winter issue of Primitive Quilts.
I don't have a lot of other quilting projects ready to post right now... so I thought I would just share some Christmas quilts, etc. from the past.

In the front hallway, a runner from Log Cabin Star blocks won at a quilt guild party many years ago.
Two friends cuddle together on a Christmas quilt.
A table topper that was a challenge to make. This is about 9 years old, but still looks great on the coffee table in the family room.
Gracie just like to snuggle amongst all the Christmas pillows!
I still have Christmas sewing to do (oh, my!)..so I better run!!
