There are good people and hope in the world and Project Lydia is one of them

Some days are hard to fathom and sad in so many ways. Other days give you a ray of sunshine that there are good people and hope in the world and Project Lydia is one of them. I was lucky enough to encounter their booth at the Sewing and Quilt Expo 2017 in Chicago. I reached back... Read more »

Best of QuiltCon at Quilt Expo 2016

I adore good signage and it was great at Quilt Expo.

Be Creative Challenge quilts from the Expo show in Schaumburg

I liked reading about the rules and how the challenge was organized. I could tell which fabrics were in common and which were new as I looked at the quilts. Here are my favorite finalists.
I want to share with you the Be Creative Challenge quilts from the Expo show in Schaumburg. I really enjoyed them and I think you will also. I did not photograph all of them, just my favorites. There are only 7 quilts in the gallery so it shouldn’t take too long to flip through. The winning quilt... Read more »

I am ashamed to admit I went to a quilt show and bought nothing

OK, true confession time. I am ashamed to admit I went to a quilt show and bought nothing. I can’t believe it either. I will post later in the week about the show itself; right now I am trying to figure out if I have lost all my quilting cred. When I first entered the... Read more »
