My sister is a wonderful organizer and loves to sink her teeth into organizing at all time. A new calling? The photo above shows her organizational idea for patterns in her sewing room. (Hang a curtain rod on the wall, put your patterns in plastic sleeves and hang them on shower curtain loops). She is new to quilting but becoming rapidly passionate. I just wanted to share this photo so that all of fellow quilters could implement the same idea to keep your patterns accessible, organized, to inspire and be used!

I have 3 nieces expecting babies, we all go through phases in life . . . raising kids, attending birthday parties, weddings, showers etc. For me its babies, babies and more babies--Bring it on! I love these little bundles of joy, they bring so much life to our families. So below is # 1 Quilt for Benjamin- son of Laura and Stephen- the quilt says it all. I have 2 more baby quilts on the go and I am so sure they will not be my last ones. Stay tuned for more pics. It is my own original design- no pattern needed- the letters are strip pieced and appliquéd and the quilt was quilted on my long arm with a generous meander pattern
The completed quilt!
Thread painting on a long arm? Who Knew?
This sunflower is appliquéd at this point on a strip pieced quilt that was constructed from a jelly roll, I then thread painted and quilted it as you go on my long arm- such fun! I named it Having a Heat Wave as the colours are hot and Sunflowers grow in the hottest part of the year here at least.

The above post is one of my recent quilts, It is an made from an Indigo Jelly Roll with fused, appliquéd flowers and is called -Warm and Indigo - stay tuned for more and more. I also recently attended a workshop with Laura Wasilowski from "The Chicago School of Fusing" from which I am now a graduate! Ha, Ha!! I will post this quilt as soon as my hand stitchery is completed.
