    Beautiful Applique

    When this quilt was brought to me to be quilted, I was excited to have the opportunity to work on it. These beautiful Antique Peonies are appliqued to a white block and set on point.

    Wow! The end of another hectic week. Things are a little crazy at school right now and I often feel like all I do is run from one place to another.  I love working with my class but sometimes the politics of the place is a little too much for me.

    Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter.  I have had a fantastic week.  A bit hectic, and I feel like I neglected my quilting a little bit, but I was still in school this week while my daughter and grandson were visiting.  I loved coming home from work and having them here.  My grandson and I would play or work on a littl...
