Winners – at last!

Thank you to everyone that has participated in the Festival.  I’m always amazed at the mass of genuine and generous quilters willing to share their quilts and the story that goes with it.  I was talking about my blog with a group of teachers last week, and read an entry to them — there were many of us in tears (myself included) and that’s just one example of how powerful our words are.  I hope that you have been inspired and moved while perusing the festival.  There’s a lot of love in each of our quilts!  The best part is – the quilts will forever be on display here – so there’s lots of time to check them all out!  Please send me your feature nominations as you look – I’ve gotten a few, but need lots … Read More »

The Edge – Blog Hop

Posted on September 28th, by Amy in give away. 499 comments

Hi friends!  I was excited to be invited to participate in this blog hop hosted by Pat Sloan – Thanks Pat!I’ll tell you about the rulers, but first I thought I would share one of my first quilts.  This is a little 27″ square quilt that I made for Emmalie when she was a baby.  It was the perfect size for stroller time and a nursing cover too -

You can see, that I folded the fabric to the front to bind it.  At this point I had a large cutting mat, but only a small 6″ ruler for cutting strips…I had the hardest time getting straight strips!  I didn’t know any better, I’ve added a few rulers to my collection since, but the little one is still a favorite for crosscutting.  I had read enough to … Read More »
