Flashback Tuesday: Pinwheel Snowflakes for Winter Joy

I had SO much fun making this Pinwheel Snowflakes for Winter Joy six-month block of the month (BOM) quilt out of the beautiful “Winter Joy” fabric from Clothworks in 2009.

You still have time to start and finish it for the upcoming holidays!  It really goes together quickly and will work great with the newest Christmas quilt fabric collections that have recently come on the market!  It would also work great with non-holiday fabric.  Anything goes!

What are you waiting for?!

    Flashback Tuesday: Santorini Stars

    This was one of my favorite block of the month (BOM) quilts to make for in 2010 – Santorini Stars:

    This was a raw edge applique using pinking shears and a pinking blade on a rotary cutter.  Really fun to make and the special young lady I gifted it to absolutely loved it!

      “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” 2014 BOM from Block 10 Instructions Have been Posted!

      I have been shirking my duties by not sharing when I have put new quilt block instructions up at for my 2014 block of the month quilt, “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not.”  Forgive me.  This summer has been crazy, between my numerous medical appointments, my husband’s schedule and our four kid’s work and/or camp schedules.  CRAZY!

      Without boring you with all of the nitty gritty details of our never-boring life, here is the August “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” quilt block:

        Flashback Tuesday: Golden Royal Layers designed by

        Since we have been celebrating “Christmas in July 2014″ at, I thought it appropriate to flashback on another holiday quilt gem from our “Christmas in July 2008″ selections – “Golden Royal Layers“:


        This finished out to be an absolutely gorgeous quilt…I just wish I remember who I gifted it to!  LOL

        Try making it with your favorite holiday fabrics that are on the market now, but be sure you find a fabric that has the fabric panels as that’s one of the things that really makes this quilt stand out!

          Flashback Tuesday: TT Mistletoe In The Corner

          Ah, I remember designing and making of this quilt so well!  In the summer of 2006, our family took a three-month adventure throughout the Pacific northwest.  My husband had to speak at professional meetings in Portland and Sacramento so we decided to just make a summer adventure out of it.  We were already homeschooling our kids and decided what better of an education could they get than a hands-on one?!   We had a 35′ camper, loaded up our Suburban and away we went!  I might add that we had four children, ages 5 to 10, one small dog and one large dog who came along on our adventures.

          We followed the Lewis & Clark Trail all the way to Ft. Clatsop (this is a rough drawing of our travels):


          We had four bunk beds in the back of the camper for the kids and my husband and I had a queen-sized bed in the front of the camper.  The bottom half of our bed lifted up to reveal a marvelous storage compartment for…you guessed it – my sewing machine, tools of the trade and fabrics!  So, I put this quilt together in the small confines of our camper after everyone had gone off to bed.  It was fun to make but even more of a challenge within the confines of our humble traveling abode.

          Now, if I can do it from a camper…surely YOU can do it anywhere, too!
