    Day of the Dead Quilt

      I spent a lot of time picking out the perfect fabrics for this quilt. I bought some online and the others I bought at JoAnn’s. A few of these glorious fabrics are from Alexander Henry. I had never heard of this fabric designer before and found out that I REALLY like his work. The …

    Lucha Madness!

    I am so happy that I agreed to guest stitch on this project. These Luchadores turned out great! They are awards for a local bowling competition ADfed puts on between the advertising agencies in El Paso. Monday evening I purchased the fabric, cut out the capes, and sewed them all until they were done. Fernando …

    Square Off – Baby Quilt

    I have been so exited about this new quilt! I am very pleased at the way this quilt turned out. About a year ago I bought two charm packs of Freebird designed by MoMo from Moda. I decided to design my own pattern and thought that this was the perfect opportunity. I needed to make …

    Oh La La Rouenneries!

      Oh, how I love French General. They just create such elegant fabric. I think they are the porsche of quilting fabric. This is an older line from them called Rouenneries Deux. To make this quilt, I used a layered cake  that I bought in Ruidoso, NM, at Martha’s Fabrics. The pattern is so easy. I saw …

    Green Stuff

    Lately I have been getting a lot of use out of my juicer. Over the past month, I have made watermelon water, cantaloupe water, carrot/orange juice, carrot/mango/blueberry juice, and Green Stuff. What, you might ask, is in this Green Stuff? It is a combination of apples (2.5), cucumbers (.5), and ginger (1″). It is tart …

    Watercolor Project: Part 1

      I broke my toe in April. My toenail was also ripped up from the nail bed. It was not until mid-July that the broken bone healed. Since I could not play outside, sew, or even drive a lot, I was forced to branch out. Going stir-crazy at home, I decided to experiment with watercolor. …

    Jack & the bean stock

    It has been to long since my last post…. I have been trying to keep up with life (and lookie here, I finally did it!). I have had a heck of a time with the comment part of this blog. I have had over a 1,000 comments and have concluded that they are spam. BAD, …

    Quilt #2

      I thought today would be a great time to send this post out. This is quilt # 2 out of about 20 that I have made over the years. I used a Kaleidoscope pattern. I fell in love instantly with the crazy cat fabric and built the quilt around it. I bought all of the fabrics …
