How Did I Quilt That: Healing

The concept of this wall hanging came to me a few years ago. As with my quilt Beyond the Brick Wall, the image of healing popped into my head out of nowhere.

Some Fun News: Brand Ambassador

I have some fun news to share. I have joined up with a new Canadian quilt store called Spack Craft Fabric.

Have You Ever Done a Block of the Month?

Have you ever participated in a block of the month quilt? A BoM isn’t the same thing as a mystery quilt. For a block of the month, you know what the final product will be.

I’ve done both and while a mystery quilt is fun, I prefer the block of the month.

Since February and March, the face of our society has changed significantly.

In the midst of this, is a blog or Facebook page about quilting really worth anything? Is it a light in a world that is getting progressively darker, or is it inappropriate and tone deaf when others are suffering?
