The Quilt Top is Finished, Now What?

So the quilt top is done, now what?  I have my bag of tricks, multiple designs, some I have learned  by some great quilt instructors, other designs I have created by doodling.   I have picked up some quilting designs looking at architecture, tiles or antique plates or trays.  I’ve seen new designs in someone… Continue reading The Quilt Top is Finished, Now What?

Hurricanes, Puppies, and a Drippy Sink

Quilt Beginnings

The first quilter I knew was my grandmother.  She and my grandfather had lake cottages in Northern Wisconsin.  The antique brass and  wooden beds were covered with my grandmother’s quilts.   I spent every summer there swimming and fishing in the lake, warming by a fire, eating my grandmother’s wonderful German food, and snuggling down… Continue reading Quilt Beginnings
