Challenging Work

Today, I begin the task of gathering the name of each victim of the Las Vegas shooting to  create a new set of blocks for my Victims Quilt. As I type each one, I am looking at their photos and reading about who they were. I am reading about husbands who died shielding their wives and […]

Creative Play Date Week – Day 2

You read about the day I had on Monday so it won’t surprise you that Tuesday morning I was a little tired sitting down for Creative Play. I didn’t create any masterpieces on Tuesday either, but that’s not really the point. One of my experiments for this week is to see if 15 minutes of […]

On the Auction Block – Urban Baby Quilt

All cotton materials and machine washable. I am running auctions that start each Monday morning. If you’d like an email […]

On the Auction Block – Quilted Coasters

Up for auction this week is a set of 4 quilted cotton coasters. I started making fabric coasters when my toddler started playing with the breakable ones I used to have.

Creative Play Date

It’s Creative Play Date Day!  I was falling asleep last night thinking about a new piece that I think I’ll get started on today.  What about you? Can you find a few minutes today for some creative time?

On the Auction Block – Rainbow Strips

As you read in my post on Thursday, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about art and commodity exchange and have decided to try an experiment. If my art is a gift and not a commodity, then I can’t put a price on it. So, I’m going to post one piece of art a week […]

Coming Out of Hibernation

The fourth quilt in my Arabesques series has been sleeping the winter away in a heap on my work table. (I last posted about finishing the top in June!) I’d done some basic quilting over the summer (?) in the fall (?)  but put it away after that. I knew that it needed more quilting, but […]
