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!

Star Light, Star Bright
Thanks for your patience during my no-sew period while I tried to avoid heat stroke by staying out of the upstairs of my house. Although our air conditioning was supposed to be fixed on Monday, they had to come back out on Tuesday and work another four or five hours. Finally, today it was cool upstairs and my sewing room did not feel like a sweat shop!
Here is the first of two quilts for my customer Pam. It is a pattern called Star Light, Star Bright, a very scrappy and fun quilt. Pam chose a dark purple thread which disappears in the purple sashing and border, but shows up beautifully in the lighter areas and on the backing.
I did free-motion leaves, swirls, and flowers all over.
