About Me

My photo
Sewing and cooking are two of my favorite things. In the past, I often found myself searching for pictures and details of projects I have done, without success. So I decided to start documenting my creations. Then my son suggested I add my recipes to the blog so that they are documented also.

McCall's Quilt Along Top Pieced Together

Well I finally got the McCall's Quilt Along quilt top pieced together.  I have made this quilt with scraps and learned many new blocks. I really am not a fan of sampler quilts as they are just too busy for me. However here it is!  Now I still have to quilt it but that probably won't get done until the fall after golf season.

How about this border with all those half triangles - really time consuming and well worth the trouble.  Stay tuned for my free motion quilting on these blocks as I am planning on trying out new techniques and designs.

Simple Applique Class

I haven't posted in weeks because Internet Explorer 11 automatically  installed itself on my PC and blogspot was not functioning correctly; apparently it works well with IE 10 but not fully supported on 11.  So I finally installed Firefox as my browser and voila! I can now update my blog!

Earlier I posted about my simple applique pattern that I had made.
 I taught a class on it and here are the attendees' wallhangings.  I am actually having another class on this project starting next week so there will be more.
