Today is the Day!

Thank you to all of you who have come here to see my work.
A particular thank-you to those of you who comment, follow and have even entered the contest to win a pattern!

The winner of the contest is 

#1 -

  Mary Pat Callihan!!

The person who stepped up first to offer her thoughts is now the owner of a free Quilting Bias pattern.
Mary Pat - please contact me at to let me know which pattern you would like & in which format.

To the rest of you - I apologize but when I tried to put the random number generator on the blog it would come up empty and I wanted to stick with the original number generated to be fair.  
That is why it isn't here.

Thanks for continuing to suffer along with a novice blogger.  Yuck.
If any of you experienced bloggers can offer advice - I would LOVE to hear it.

What quilting projects are you working on this week?

I have been binding 2 quilts -

#1 is a UFO that I forced myself to finish
#2 is a sample for a class I am offering on improvisational work.
 I will now show them to you in reverse order!

#2: is a version of Jacquie Gering's Shattered Quilt.
Sorry about the shadows - it is a warm, sunny, last day of September here in Georgia.

#1: This is my design made with Louisa L. Smith's Strips and Curves rulers after reading 
A New Twist on Strips & Curves:

Afraid of curves in quilting?  

It takes a little practice just like anything else but we will be tackling them in the Pink Sun Rising Quilt-Along if you dare to join us!

Have a wonderful first week of October!


  1. I love reading your blog! I could never figure out how to put the random generator on my blog either. Sometimes I take a pic of it, crop it and add it to the blog :)

  2. GREAT quilts!!! The quilting on both of them is fantastic and really adds to the piecing of both. Oh, I wish I could see them in person - but I just might get my socks knocked off!!

  3. Oh Heather! I am so super excited! Thank you sooo much. Your work is just beautiful and I am truly inspired by your work.


I do love to hear your thoughts, and know others will too.
I look forward to reading YOUR comment!
