Improv Piecing Class with Valley MQG

Today, I taught an improvisational piecing workshop hosted by Valley Modern Quilt Guild. I really feel fortunate to be a part of a guild that has so many talented and creative people. We had a great time and shared many laughs. Each of the students produced some very different and unique blocks. I’m always amazed and inspired by the creativity that other people possess. A special thank you to CJ Foss for setting up the room for us…it was perfect!

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles

Another lazy Sunday…what to do? Let’s go to the Natural History Museum! We’ve both lived here for quite a while, and neither one of us has ever been there. There is a new exhibit of Pterosaurs, so let’s go check it out. We had a great time, and it’s an excellent way to spend a day!

LOVE, the Table Runner


Those UFO’s keep stacking up. I made this table runner for Greg in January of this year. It was intended to be his Valentine’s Day present. I started quilting it on my Bernina domestic machine and I wasn’t happy with the stitches and my pebbles. Not too sure about everyone else, but I would almost rather start over than sit down with the seam ripper and remove stitches. We’ve all heard people say ‘I love to take out stitches’…WTF? Really? Well, I did it! Stitches ripped! I then loaded the project on Johnnie and 30 minutes later all my pebbles are done. The road less taken? I need a new map.
