Quilts from QuiltCon 2015

The signage at the show was great. In fact, there really wasn't anything I didn't like about the show or its organization.
I went to QuiltCon with the hope of getting inspired and oh baby, I was inspired and then some! I took hundreds of pictures of quilts and the tags next to them. Some of the pictures were on my phone, others on my casual camera and still others on my better camera. I loaded them... Read more »

Modern baby quilt on Longarm with red snappers

I was able to load the “modern” baby quilt onto Gladys the Gammill pretty quickly, hurray! I have been pretty motivated to sew because that baby is coming in less than a month. I want to get a few more things done so I can just enjoy her once she gets here. Here is the... Read more »

Modern Quilts and Traditional quilts

I love quilts, all quilts!  There are all types that really appeal to me and a lot has to do with how the color of the fabric works with the design.  I learned to quilt the very traditional way, everything by hand.  Everything?  Oh yes, everything.  We cut out each piece, traced each seam and...
