I Knew the Answer Would Come

I knew that if I just prayed and kept moving forward, an answer would come, and it did!  But there were obstacles…

“Frolic” Blocks Completed!

Since taking the “Straits of Mackinac” class the end of February, I have been spinning my wheels on my quilts.  I have worked on “Straits of Mackinac”, the whole time feeling guilty because “Frolic” pieces are spread out all over my work area.  I finally decided that I needed to concentrate on “Frolic” so that…

This Ruler Has Not Disappointed!

After participating last year in Bonnie Hunter’s “Good Fortune” Mystery Quilt, I KNEW I needed a better, quicker way to cut strips.  Yes.  I own a laser.  Yes.  It is amazing for cutting fabric.  BUT… sometimes it takes longer to set up to use the laser than it does to use a ruler and rotary…
