Quilt Retreat!

I just got back from a fun Quilt Retreat at Vina De Lestonnac.  Round the clock sewing and chatting.  Best part of all, all meals prepared and served – no cleaning up! And, I still marvel at how much a bunch of women can talk all day, and into the wee hours of the night 🙂


Hemet Quilt Show

Some eye candy from the 2016 Hemet Quilt Show hosted by the Valley Quilter’s Guild:

Happy Quilts!

As much as I admire art quilts, I have a preference for utilitarian quilts.  Quilts that can be lovingly used, scrunched up, and washed over and over again.  We hosted our daughters Collegiate Cycling team this weekend, and our quilts were put to good use.  The guys and bikes slept in my Studio surrounded by quilts! I threw in a photo of dear daughter, courtesy of Cycling Illustrated.


A Baby Quilt

Baby quilts are fun to make.  Small, cute, and fast to complete. Kind of an instant gratification quilt.  My friend Muriel has a new grandson, and when I came across this French bunnies fabric, I could not resist 🙂


A Modern Quilt

My very first modern quilt.  Dear Hubby hung curtain rods in my studio – perfect for displaying my latest creation.  And my sweet quilting buddy, Hiro 🙂


Pink Cactus!

Yay! I have finally finished my Pink Cactus painting!Pink Cactus
