I like to make all kinds of quilts, from postcard to king-size. I have a Gammill longarm quilting machine, several domestic sewing machines, and also work with a Babylock Embellishing machine. In the past few years, I have tried my hand at painting with watercolors and art journaling. I also throw in a little nature photography and the occasional travel or grandchild pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

Symposium Report #3: Quilt Show
The North Carolina Quilt Symposium last weekend is continuing to provide plenty of blog material. Today I will show some photographs from the Quilt Show, whose theme was Raleigh, City of Oaks. They are in no particular order. More to come in later posts!
Here is the raffle quilt, designed by Mary Corcoran, pieced and appliqued by members of Capital Quilters Guild, and quilted by Cathy Kirk.
I can't determine the name or maker of this delightful quilt. Can anyone help me?
