Be My Neighbor – Quilting the Beast

After the flimsy was done, I measured the quilt.  It came out at 70 x 96 inches, quite the beast!  So now the decision was how to quilt it.  From the beginning, I wanted to do a cloud fill in the sky parts, and individual motifs and designs on each house.  I needed to decide …

Building a Brighter Year Quilt

Last fall during the Autumn Jubilee, quilter Diann won the prize of quilting a table topper.  She contacted me to ask if I would do a small quilt for a charity called Building a Brighter Year instead of her table topper.  This charity supports families with infants facing medical challenges and financial hardship in Colorado.  …

Anita’s Arrowhead Quilts for Elizabeth House

I was having lunch with my dear friend Carin last November when she began to tell me of a quilting project her area group was working on. They were making quilt tops, but their plan for having them quilted wasn’t going as hoped. Carin hesitated to ask, but she wanted to know if I would …
