One more time....

I'll stop now, I've probably driven everyone crazy.




more testing

Kind of makes a statement at this size, doesn't it?


Just a test.............

Just trying out a signature.


All about Geta Gama..............

I've talked to you about Geta in past blogs but there is NEW news today! The Electric Quilt Co and website interviewed Geta and it's really a wonderful and intersting interview. You'll get right into the heart of this lovely and creative woman. And the really cool thing is, Geta now has her first e-book ready for purchase. And I'm betting it's got every little detail possible to teach us how to make shadow trapunto projects like Geta's beautiful work.

So, stop by and visit Geta.

The interview at Electric Quilt:

You'll find her new e-book here and some other beautiful works.
Geta's website and shop.

Geta's blog and all of her other goodies that she makes.

More restful to the eye, right?

Things are heating up.........................

Ok, where did our coooooooooool July disapear to? I want to turn back the calendar. I want those 50* nights back. I knew the unsually cool July could not last forever but a girl can hope, can't she? I guess the only thing to do when it's miserable hot is turn on the AC and sew, sew, sew.

A new pattern at called Stars On The Square. This would be a fast pieced quilt, with huge blocks, set on point. You can have this pieced in a weekend, easily.

Ok, I'm going to sit over a cold air vent. Hope everyone is staying as cool as possible.

Now for some fun...........

So sorry to be absent. Who would have thought just two college courses would take up so much time. But, the summer session is over and I have a few weeks before Fall classes begin so now's time for something way more fun. I also finished hand quilting the two railfence quilts and they are in their new home. Why don't I post pictures? well, I was so excited to be finished with them both (I rarely do two of the same anything so this was a challenge dealing with boredom) so, I hurriedly delivered them and only remembered later that I hadn't taken final pics. But I was pleased with their results and so was their owner. So, new fun!

Several years ago I purchased the Dear Jane software to go along with my Electric Quilt software and haven't touched the DJ since. (
But a week ago or so, I stumbled across a DJ blog. (I love stumbling upon blogs I've never read before.) Check out Karen's blogs to see her DJ journey and all of her other great projects. She's very inspiring. So inspiring, I began my DJ journey this weekend.

Karen's Dear Jane:
Karen's other projects:

I completed my first three blocks and can't wait to do more. I'm using fabrics from my civil war repro's stash and plan to make my DJ quilt as similar to Jane Stickle's quilt as possible. Just to see if I can, you know?

My goal:

I'll post my progress as I go along. Lets see how many blocks I can get done before classes begin again.........
