Batiks! Batiks! Batiks!

This is what happens when you are confined to home too long! I was made an offer I could not refuse on batiks.  I love batiks.  How could I say no?  

What Little Pretties!

  Today I am going out on the road to visit some quilt shops.  I know, tough job, but this is just one of the reasons why I love my job! In anticipation of spring, I have been kitting up these little beauties from the Watercolor Blossoms kit.   I just love the colors and how…

A Very Good Day!

This morning we woke up in Bedford IN, and headed to our first quilt shop of the day, the Indiana Quilt Depot.  The shop was not open, so again, I stuck a card in the door and we were all ready to move on when we saw movement inside the shop.   I am so glad…

A Wall Quilt to Dye For!

I know how I want this quilt to look.  I have been looking for fabrics, and as far as I can tell, they have not been made yet.  So I will dye fabric!

We Are Blossoming!

After God and family, I love quilting and designing! And close behind those is my flowers. I miss them so in the winter, but without that time of waiting, I know I would not appreciate the spring flowers near enough. One of my very favorite spring flowers is the poppy. I just love the oranges,…

Bonnie Hunter’s 2018 Mystery Quilt, “Good Fortune” Part 3

Good grief!  Is Christmas really only a little over two weeks away???   I am SOOO far behind this year!  Between babysitting little ones, working on the store and the new designs to be released in early 2019, and the Mystery Quilt, I lost track of how quickly Christmas was approaching! I have been doing a…

Bonnie Hunter’s 2018 Mystery Quilt, “Good Fortune”

I have considered doing a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt for many years now, but joining just before Christmas was a hindrance.  I have folders on my computer of a couple of the PDF’s from years gone by, hoping that I would make it during another part of the year, but without the deadlines and community,…

Color Inspiration for Quilting

Heaven is declaring God’s glory; the sky is proclaiming his handiwork.  Psalms 19: 1 When I first started quilting, most of the quilting fabrics were “calicos” and solids.  There were few “quilt” shops (I don’t think I saw a single one until I was well into quilting and that was in an Amish area almost…

The Journey Does Indeed Begin!

He refreshes my soul.  He guides me along paths for his name’s sake.  Psalm 23:3 Retirement…  A time to step back, relax, take life easy.   That is what we like to think the definition is, but is it?   Or is it a clean slate to start doing that which you have been building within your…
