There are times in life when you know you have reached a goal with hard work and determination.  This post is about one of those times in my life.

Tulips & Roses Quilt Part 3


Moving right along nicely!  This is turning out to be larger than I anticipated.  I don't think I realized just how big 80x94 was going to be until now.  LOL.

Tulips & Roses Quilt Part 2


In Part 2, I finish the applique design in the large center block of the quilt top.  The appliques are all pressed and stitched into place and the block is trimmed out at the end.

Tulips & Roses Quilt Part 1


My first quilt of the year is this beautiful Tulips & Roses quilt by Darlene Jewell-Walhood for Connecting Threads.  The quilt kit arrived and I'm excited to start making it for a friend.  This quilt will be beautiful when complete!  If you would like to make this quilt along with me, simply go to Connecting Threads (the link is in my blog post) and order the kit, the backing fabric, and the supplies you need to complete the entire quilt, sewing along with me!  If you have any questions, I'm happy to help.

Memories of Thanksgiving past

(Hillside Overlook by John Potatchnik)

My fondest memories of Thanksgiving are from my childhood and my grandparent's house in the Walkersville, Maryland.  I'd like to share those memories with you.
