Photo Friday – Windows

The challenge for this past week in my Ricky Tims’ 2016 Photo Challenge class was “windows.”  A few minutes after I finished reading the lesson, I hopped up to walk down the hall, walked past my laundry room, stopped, backed up, and noticed this window.  (The caption is exactly what I posted with the photo […]

Photo Friday

Week 2’s Photo Challenge was “Line.”  I shot some pictures in Harvard Square until my fingers stopped working from the cold and settled on this image as my submission for the week:

#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 35

By Week 35 of my journal quilting project, my pregnancy was in full swing, so to speak.  Inspired by the Batman television series, I created this journal quilt to record those first kicks. I put scrapbooking stickers on fabric, painted over them with fabric paints and then removed the stickers when the paint dried to […]

Design Wall Monday – on Tuesday

What I have been working on lately could qualify for Throwback Thursday.  I started working on these in 2012 and then put them away from a while. I just picked them back up and got the facing done on 9 quilts over the weekend. Many years ago, my sister wrote a children’s book. I love […]

The power wasn’t out for long, but the generator […]

7th Time is a Charm!

Finally, finally the top for Arabesque #3 is done. The center star required seven tries, cutting out three different stars, cursing, and prayers. It’s still not done well, but I decided that seven was my limit. If it lays flat when it’s quilted, it will be a miracle.

#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 33

This week’s journal quilt was one of my favorites because of the cool batiks and the silver threads used to create bare winter trees.  I made it the week of January 5th, 2012, and it just makes me think of the hush of a winter blanket of snow.
