Quilter's Affair 2016

Just a little Quilter's Affair Update!
The Splendid class has a discrepancy between the original supply list and the pattern.
Please use the Fabric Requirements listed on the pattern.

A note for each of my classes:
You may choose to do a little pre-cutting (not required).
Should you feel like you want to be a bit more prepared, go ahead and cut the strips listed in the pattern.
Please do not cut the triangles.
I want to be able to demo the technique for the triangles and be close by to guide you through the process.

Please call. email or text me if you have any concerns I have not addressed.

I am so excited for class, see you soon!

I would love to know!  

Please share your color ideas with me.
The pattern book is available for sale right now

Check it out on my website:

You can get a hard copy or download it digitally

The Goddess Block Project–Block 12

The last block (for now)!  Spinning Wheel Block.


I really had a good/tough time designing these blocks!  The blocks themselves came rather easily, but writing, filming, editing and all that jazz takes a toll on a quilter.  I need to spend more time at my sewing machine and less time at my computer.  It seems to be my never ending struggle.  Well, here is the last of the blocks in this series.

Here is the block all stitched up.DSC_0033 (2)


So here is a digital version of something you can do with the block….Spinning Wheels Quilt

I really think this one is fun and funky!  Someday you may see these as actual patterns, you never know!  As for now, I am off to other adventures (in the quilt world, of course) and the occasional Harley ride.  The weather is beautiful here, great time for a ride.  Gotta go…

The Goddess Block Project–Block 11

I have a special block to share this week.  I designed this one quite a while back.  It is called the Stunning Star.DSC_0032 (3)

It is a fun block to make (at least it was a fun one for me).  I have actually used this block in a quilt before.Block 11

So here is a digital version of something you can do with the block….Stunning Star Quilt

I made this one up into a quilt with a second block intermixed.  This is a digital version.  On the actual quilt, every star is a different color.  It is currently on display.  It will be raffled off this coming Saturday, so my job is to try and get some great pictures of the quilt before it belongs to someone else.AVPCC 2014I will keep you posted about how the quilt looks and how the raffle goes. 

By the way, if you watch the video I let you know that I have decided to bring this project to an end.  There will be one more FREE Quilt Block for The Goddess Block Project next week.  Block 12 will be the last of the Free Blocks.  I hope you have enjoyed each block each week.

There is just so much always going on!
