For the record

For the record

Are you a record-keeping quilter? I wish I were. How cool would that be to have a notebook, or a spreadsheet, with every detail of every quilt you’ve made in one neat place? I know quilters who keep track of everything, from each spool of thread and how much they paid [Read More]

Outtakes

Outtakes

I’m not a huge fan of winter, but there is one thing I like when the weather turns nippy―I get to take my River Trees quilt out of the closet and enjoy it until spring. Even though it’s red and green, the quilt is not so Christmassy that I get tired of looking at it [Read More]
