One of the joys of being an Island Batik Ambassador is the (totally unnecessary) excuse to constantly play with batiks - and this month's challenge is no different. I LOVE paper piecing - and hopefully you do too! What I have discovered is that paper piecing, much like chocolate, is... Continue reading

I love seeing the blocks come together. And I love it when my quilting fairy (thank you, Pat!)... Continue reading

On this, the last stop for Tamarinis, I thought a nice pieceful (ha ha - get the pun....pieceful instead of peaceful.....yeah, I am easily amused.....) stop in the countryside would be refreshing. On this trip, I'm working with... Continue reading

I was thrilled - and honored - to be included in Marlene Oddie's blog hop celebrating the release of her new book with AQS, You Can Quilt.
