The first thing I want to say is that I'm not calling this quilt terrible. Did you notice that? How I made my first quilt? Well, I can look back now and say that my quiltmaking skills were terrible. I really didn't know what I was doing, but I'm so glad I jumped right in and made a quilt.Read More

My kids love rag quilts, and this is the best one I've made yet. At least according to them. I wrote last Saturday that they had it on a rotating schedule so everyone got a chance to sleep with it.

This new logo makes me think of a party... a fabulous sewing soiree!Read More
