moving right along (dug-a-dung, dug-a-dung)

    The song mirrors my mood working on this quilt. I’m moving along,  s-l-o-w-l-y, but happily. I’m regretting my choice to do the quilting by hand. The result is lovely, and I’m sure I’ll be happy at the end, but wow, it’s much more work than I imagined. All the fabric co-ordinate well, evenContinue reading “moving right along (dug-a-dung, dug-a-dung)”

a little progress

I flubbed the flying geese, I admit that right now.   I had sewed flying geese for something else, but that was months ago, and in my memory the math on them was one way, when reality was entirely different.

That’s a little disheartening, you know? This year–well, fingers crossed I’ll have more time for projects. I’ll have to carveContinue reading “flirty little Christmas trees”

Does anyone know the name of the fabric in the circle below? If you do, leave a comment. I’d like to findContinue reading “favorite quilts at the fair, 2019”

fox face quilt square pattern

I have listed my fox quilt pattern on etsy again. I just sort of let it slide to the way-side, but it should be up running constantly, because it’s a good pattern and fits a niche in a way I haven’t seen anyone else do. Please follow the link above and pin to pinterest fromContinue reading “fox face quilt square pattern”
