Introducing my Small Change

I had the opportunity several months ago to test a pattern for Joanne Kerton of Canuck Quilter Designs. I love her designs and always have fun pulling fabrics for her patterns.

Wonderful Wednesday

Had some fun today playing with scraps. 😄 I’ve been busy doing some organizing and redrafting patterns. I even drew out a quilting design on a quilt top.

Finally A Finish 😄

This finish is a real joy to have done. It not only completes a commission, but gets a flimsy off my To Be Quilted/UFO List. I had gone over several patterns and photos of quilts with my customer and his choice was this quilt. This top was a test pattern I did for The QuiltContinue reading “Finally A Finish 😄”
