If you’ve been following along, you may have noticed that I like to approach quilting my own way. There’s no perfect method because every quilter thinks differently and prefers a unique approach that suits him or her best. This is definitely true for Free Motion Quilting! It’s supposed to be “free”-ing to do it your own way, but I can see how that might be difficult to tackle when you’re used to doing quilt piecing, which usually requires exact measurement and math. So, if you’ve been hesitant to try it out for yourself, we’ve decided to offer a little bit of motivation… and is there better motivationRead More →

February 20th is my 4 year anniversary. For the past few years I have been celebrating my recovery from alcohol addiction by hiking deep into the wilderness and enjoying nature with my newest coin. This year was the 4 year marker without a drink, so my 12 year old son and I did a three day backpack trip in Bug Sur, CA. The destination was Sykes Hot Springs and it was an enjoyable 21 mile hike! My son was a fantastic hiking partner and one of the major reasons I quit drinking. What a blessing to have this time together, a time both of usRead More →

I had so much fun at the Surf’s Up Retreat at Missouri Star Quilt Company! What a blast to spend one on one time with those that traveled to come to my retreat! Because we had a smaller group we were all able to spread out our sewing supplies and use the spacious Sewing Center to our advantage! Let’s just take a minute and talk about this Sewing Center. Nothing is better than a comfortable space with amazing lighting and plenty of space to spread out. Anyways, here are a few pictures of the Sewing Center! The whole place was a quilting inspiration. I mayRead More →
