Here’s a quilt that I’ve never blogged about. I blogged about The Big ‘O’ Quilt a few months ago. This is the second quilt in the ‘O’ Series, The Big ‘O’, Part II. Like The Big ‘O’ this quilt uses the Bias Tape Appliqué technique but only on the right half of the quilt.  The other half uses Dale Fleming’s …

A very dear friend is having a baby boy soon. She loves red polka dots. And browns. And polka dots in general. And twice I heard her say she loved the Fox and the Houndstooth fabric.

I thought it would be fun to see some modern quilts at the LA County Fair, so I thought I’d enter one. It’s not really a show quilt BUT, it is definitely different than any other quilts at the fair. We usually go to either the LA or Orange County Fairs every year. My primary goal is usually to get …

I just wanted to share a quilt that one of my students Monica A. made in my last Perfect Puddles class. Isn’t it great?

This is a project that was finished last year – like six months ago – that I never posted! It was made for the LAMQG Mini Quilt Swap.

There are two things that I think are perfect. Picnics. And, circles. Picnics are romantic for two and awesome for many. It’s just you and those that you love sitting close  to each other and nature eating yummy food (picnics make all food yummy) having nothing better to do than connect with each other.  What can be more perfect than …
