The Washing of "The Jane"


This was the view from my chair over the weekend.

The chair became my comfort spot while I rested through the after effects of Moderna #2.

Friday afternoon upon returning home I got this crazy notion to NEST - see Saturday's post of spice cabinet clean out! 

This also lead me to finally jumping in and washing the Jane Stickle quilt that had been hanging in the basement studio at the Wallburg house for the past 13 years.

Where the Pretty Things Bloom


Thursday was road trip day.

A mid-afternoon appointment in Winston gave me plenty of time for a new audio book as I drove my way down beyond the Blue Ridge parkway to Wilkesboro, and further into the piedmont where allergy season is in full swing!

After two hours where "the pretty things bloom" it felt like my eyes were blinking sand!  Oh yay! Spring!

Catching Rainbows Pattern Release & Gift-Away!


It's a rainbow explosion of fun in the Quiltville Studios today as we release the printable PDF pattern for my Catching Rainbows quilt!

Are you as excited as I am?

I have heard from many who have been pulling and setting fabric color families aside for weeks - I suspect this weekend will be a flurry of color for many as you dive in!

Rollin' With the Changes


It's inevitable!

Nothing stays the same.

The only constant is change.

And we've got to roll with them if we want to keep moving forward.

Sometimes these changes come and I embrace them. Sometimes changes come and they tie me knots and throw me for a loop and a standstill.

This one is not a biggie  - but it will affect many of you so we are going to put this out here at the top of the blog so you can keep following with only a few adjustments being needed.

This is a Test, This is Only a Test



I got a little message from Feedburner this afternoon.


They are discontinuing the service of emailing blog posts to followers. The service from Feedburner will end in July.

It's SAD for me, because I know many of you come by simply because you found the teaser post in your email.

And the Obsession Grows -


I made 7 more Cabin Corners blocks yesterday.

This project was just an idea - a pipe dream - a possibility - a nudge - okay, a SHOVE into sewing up the remains left from my Rockabilly Swing quilt which I do have to say is much more fun than simply throwing everything into some random bin to deal with later.

If there re more scraps on hand - just keep sewing!

The center of the blocks really do use the small pieces - but when it gets to the larger pieces, I've been digging into strings.
