8-Pointed Star Quilt

8-Pointed Star Quilt

For anyone that knows me, they’ll tell you that I do a lot of quilt research. In my travels, I’ve acquired a nice personal library of resource and reference books. One of those books happens to be America’s Quilts and Coverlets by Carleton L....
Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019

Super Blood Wolf Moon 2019

My husband is an amature astrophotographer. He likes to take photos of astronomical things for enjoyment and research. In January of this year, there was a lunar eclipse called the “Super Blood Wolf Moon”. Some of his photos were down right stunning....

Projects for Me

Sometimes, I get so wrapped up in making stuff for others that I forget to make stuff for me. (Like wool socks for winter) Then, there are times when I take the time to finish some projects that I’d started but set aside for whatever reason. I started the gray...
Krampus Hat

Krampus Hat

I’d found this Krampus Hat pattern online, during a random search for something else. I saved it for later use, because I never know when something is going to come up or I’d be asked if I knew of it (or something like it). I’d posted the same link...

Sean Patrick Flanery, actor and author,¬†posted a particular photo on Twitter a while ago. I like the composition he’d created, and asked if he’d allow me to turn it into an art quilt. With his permission given, I began my journey. The actual assembly of...

Fuck Cancer – Stephen Amell

Fuck Cancer – Stephen Amell

The idea for this project started about a couple of years ago, when a friend of mine asked if I’d consider making a “thank you for all you do” sort of thing for Stephen Amell. Mr. Amell, I’d come to understand does a lot of work with an...
