We love Quiltmania!

Remember this quilt? My Hollyhock Garden. It will be appearing in the "Simply Vintage" magazine by Quiltmania. We have been so lucky to have a few quilts published in their great magazines.

Loch Lomond

This is Loch Lomond in Scotland. When I was a little girl my grandma would sing about this wonderful place. I have a fantastic Scottish heritage! Norma and I visited Scotland and went to Stirling Castle where my great-great grandfather was a coachman.

After returning from Scotland I wanted to make a quilt that reminded me of the beautiful country side with the wildflowers and all different shade of green.

I can't keep up with Norma. She has designed this cute picture to welcome in spring. I watch outside my window to see the robins looking for tidbits of grass and such to build nests. This picture is a wonderful wool piece that looks great on any wall.
Have a great Spring day my friends!

Second Time Around

Don't you love this new quilt? It is so scrappy and you can't believe the fabrics. We now have Geoff writing our patterns and he is doing a great job! He can hardly believe what he has to do for his mom and her friend! He has done all our pattern covers so I thought, well, he might as well be doing the writing too. I am so lucky. Have a nice day friends!

Spring is in the Air!

This is the table topper Norma designed and taught at the retreat. It was a great success. The blocks are easy applique and quick to piece. Thanks for stopping by for a quick peek.
