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!

Some Quilts from the Whacky Ladies
Last night was the monthly meeting of my local quilt bee, The Whacky Ladies.
Show and Tell is always fun, and that was the case last night.
Carolyn made a tote bag from a Bali Pop bundle and used it on a trip to Texas last week for a high school reunion.
Carolyn also showed a Work in Progress, a Basket Lattice project.
Sharon is working on an interesting Mystery Quilt. The setting is quite unusual, and Sharon is altering it a bit from the instructions.
Here is a detail from an art quilt by Janice Badger. The flower is formed from a silk hanky.
Janice spotted a product of mine in a C&T Publishing advertisement on the inside cover of the latest Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. It is a painted silk journal that I made using products included in the Artful Fibers package from C&T. How fun to be named in a magazine! Sorry about the sideways image. My journal is the magenta one with the pansy closure.
Here is a better picture of it.
Here is a baby quilt that Kathy Miller put together from some of my fabric squares at our January Sew-in meeting. I quilted it, and it is now bound and ready to turn in to the Capital Quilters Guild.
Marilyn is also working on a quilt top to be given to a baby upon his Baptism at her church.
It has been a very hot week. I have been going for early morning walks with Kasey on the greenway. The aromas of honeysuckle and wild roses along the pathways are just intoxicating!
