    Posted on September 4, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItDeck the Halls with Boughs of Holly!  Have you ever gone Christmas Caroling?  We have done it a few times.  Trouble is our neighborhood is very spread out because we live on large parcels of land.  We have to drive from house to house instead of walking, but it is a fun thing to […]

    September 2017 Block of the Month

    Posted on September 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItMy wild rose. These bloom every spring through the summer and are deer resistant, not like domesticated roses and have been very inspirational.   This quilt was included in my book “A Thread Runs Through it….” published in 1999.  I still have copies available at a special price, if you are interested.  You can see […]

    Pin ItThis month was an easy pick, I could only “pick” Violet!  The aroma of violets is so lovely I have them growing in an old tin wash tub with Columbine on my upper deck.  If I want flowers around here I have to grow them in pots out of reach of the deer and […]

    Stash Busting Little Girl Dresses

    Posted on July 18, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItJust a quick note to share what I have been doing, besides appliqué.  Our little granddaughter loves dresses.  I have lots of patterns from the 1970s when I made dresses for my daughters, but I was looking for something simple.  I found several sources with free patterns for A-line dresses. I thought I would […]

    Posted on June 1, 2017 by in Blog

    Pin ItThis month we have two blocks to get in thirteen for the year and not lap over into January.  One is a familiar flower and the other is not, but it starts with S.  I just loved the simplistic look of it.  I decided to use blue, rather than lavender for my flowers.  It […]

I really enjoy Laurel Burch designs, especially […]
