Happy Easter 2008!

It is a cold, gloomy day outside, but I am happy, indoors, with a fire burning in the pellet stove.

This quilt is one of my favorites and it hangs in my living room. I love Bargello quilts. No matter the color combination, you cannot go wrong with the design of this quilt.

Quilt Diva

Last November, my husband and I took a trip to Scottsdale, Arizona. He wanted to see a car show and I wanted to visit quilt shops. I saw this wallhanging in a shop in Mesa and just had to have the pattern. This is an Amy Bradley design, but it is not a self portrait. I don't have that much hair :( sadly.


This is my very favorite quilt. The pattern is called Eureka and it is one of Jackie Robinson's patterns... you can see her patterns at This is my first quilt where I went "out of the box" and used a color I have NEVER used before... orange!

The quilt is a super king... 105" x 122" because my husband complains my quilts are never quite big enough for the bed and he steals my covers all the time so now... no problem!

Baby Quilt in progress

Here is a picture of a baby quilt in progress. I love making scrap quilts and have a bin of 4 inch squares that I use. From these squares, I can make half-square triangles or 4 patch blocks. And then the designs are endless!
This block is called Jacob's Ladder and is one of my favorites.
