MIA

With the end of the school year, I fell into a black hole.  I think I am emerging from it.  I hope I am emerging.  I occasionally fall into these black holes.  Fortunately, they aren’t caused by depression, just busyness that has to take precedence over quilting.  I am looking forward to finding my sewing…

An Army of Frogs

 I learned something new today.  I didn’t know that a group of frogs was called an army.  I guess I have made an army of frogs this week. The “pillow pet” or stuffed owl that I made for my 12 year old daughter to give to her friend a couple months ago: http://moosequilts.blogspot.com/2011/03/pillow-pet.html turned out…

Going Coastal Quilt

Thought I would show you what I came up with for Going Coastal.  I started cutting late Friday night and got 7 blocks made.  Saturday was a little crazy, but I got all 56 blocks done.  Today I finished it!  I even washed and dried it!  Of course, it has been raining ALL day here (we…
