I am taking a quilt class that my good friend, Julie Isa, teaches every other Friday night. It is fun to get together with a bunch of quilters and make something beautiful from cut up fabric pieces. We are going to make some of the most awesome quilts this year and I am so excited about the quilt patterns she has selected. This SPOOL QUILT pattern is the first of the year. I chose to do mine smaller than the pattern so I could use it as a wall hanging in my sewing room and hang it above my cutting table. I love looking at it while I'm cutting up fabric. The thread area of the spools is from a charm pack called Wiscasset by Moda. I loved all the fabrics. I'm going to make a table runner from the extras. To me, quilts are artwork and should be enjoyed and cherished either while your sleeping, sewing, or whatever you are doing.

No - I Don't Just Sew
I love to create. I usually come up with an idea of something I want to do and then after dreaming about it (literally) I'm ready to draw the plans, make the pattern or solve the problem. Whether I am designing a new home, remodeling a kitchen, creating real estate marketing, decorating a tablescape, or making a birthday cake - I always try to strive for "my" level of perfection by doing the very best I can. My reward is seeing others find joy in the things I create.
Years ago my grandma Dover, a successful business woman, gave me the best advice ever. She said, “if you really want to be good at something… just find someone else who is – and then learn from them.” Yes, it’s just that easy.
