I'm excited for this opportunity coming up in April/May
It took me several days into the New Year to put away all of the quilts and decorations from Christmas celebrations. I enjoy having some new and some old worn things around me while I enjoy the Christmas season.
The large nativity set is all packed up in the stable.
The quilts are stacked to be put in the closet.
I'm finally ready to move on to the new year.
Hope yours is fruitful.
So easy - you can make a bunch in a couple of hours - I used all scraps. Dig around and see if you have some that will work. I save my Christmas fabric scraps in a large bag, ready to scrounge for little projects.
Email me if you want a pdf file.
Fold in half diagonally and then fold again for prairie point.
trim if desired.
Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA, exhibited works from artists of different mediums.
The exhibit was called: "Towering" inspired by the redwoods. Of course, that's right up my alley. I entered "Richardson's Grove" and "Miniature Redwoods".
I'm happy to report that "Richardson's Grove" won 2nd place People's Choice award. I always am excited when a fiber art piece stands up with paintings and other types of artwork.

You would never believe that these works of art are actually quilts – all stitched by hand! 😳 The @NationalQuiltMuseum in Paducah, Kentucky, is currently home to over 600 quilts made by roughly 350 artists from 12 countries and 47 states. We asked the museum’s curator, Rachael Baar, to choose some of her all-time favorite pieces. ✨ Swipe to see the amazing creations, and visit the link in bio to read the inspirations behind them. 👆🏼
I was happy to see that Martha Stewart posted my quilt on Instagram today.
It resides at the National Quilt Museum now and I’m always happy to see it again
This quilt is a blast from the past. It's large and needs a big wall space to display. It was inspired by my son saying. Hey Mom, one of these days you need to make a quilt of the US with a eagle flying over. So this is what I came up with.
Edge treatment is a bit unusual -
My local guild, Redwood Empire Quilter's Guild, has an annual Basket Auction. This year I decided to do a theme: Fun in the Sun.
Here's the Basket - then a picture of the small quiltHere's the basket - then the small quilt.
I did it! I finished the Morning Star Bed Quilt!! finally. This is a quilt which has been worked on in small little bits of time for several years. The first recorded date I have on it is when I scanned the sketch into my computer in March of 2011. I would get all enthused and try to finish it only to put it away and work on something else. I began to think that it would never get done --but finally--complete--accomplished--yipee. I'll show the sketch and a couple of other shots, along with the completed quilt.
When I do a quilt from this type of sketch, I have to invent the pattern as I go. This one was built around a center, so that's where I started. As you can see the finished quilt is a bit different from the original sketch, but that's just how it goes as I quilt. - need I say, I'm glad it's done!
