Tomorrow, September 15th, is National Sew A Jelly Roll Day. A set of 42, 2½" strips, rolled to look like a delicious dessert, is lovingly known as a Jelly ... View Post

    Chain Quilting Thread Cutter

    I picked up this awesome little tool while I was at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago. I set it aside for awhile as I was not working on projects using chain piecing.

    Happy 4th

    Everyone who has walked into my house over the last couple of weeks has commented on this small quilt and pillow. They are patriotic and festive. The quilt is a small throw that I place over the back of my couch. It was made using 4" tumblers with a 4" border around the outside. The border nice... View Post
