I mentioned in my last post that I had finished two quilts and that last week had been tough. One of the things that happened is that my good friend Karen @ CapitolaQuilter lost her sweet dog, Dottie. Karen kindly made her home available to me many times over the years […]

Finish: Dottie

So this weekend I started and finished TWO quilts!! This sounds impressive until I mention that one was 18″ x 24″ and the other a mere 4.75″ square. It’s okay, I’ll take it! I wanted to share the 4.75″ square one first, which was part of the mini mini quilt swap […]

Finish: Light in the Storm

When I was contacting friends to inform them of my upcoming move, I found out that a friend of mine had cancer. She had just gotten out of the hospital after a large number of -ectomy style operations and her prognosis is quite good. However, she told me that she’d be starting […]

Finish: Sea Glass

Finish: Macaron Quilt

Finish: Minecraft Pillow

Happy New Year everyone! I always enjoy taking a few moments at the beginning of a new year and reflecting on what has been and what will hopefully be. So last year I made a lot of things, but it turns out I didn’t finish a whole lot. Which initially […]

2014 and 2015

This weekend I spent time at the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild’s yearly retreat and got quite a lot done. First up, I was able to finally finish up the Plaid Parfait mini-quilt! This quilt is part of the Michael Miller Spring Couture challenge for QuiltCon, and I was sent […]
