As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others.  You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer.  In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products.  I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five.  Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

Quilting Catch Up

It's been a very long time since I posted anything, so here are a few quilting endeavors from the past few months. Yes, I have actually accomplished a lot more, but alas, I dropped the ball and did not photograph them before giving them as gifts. So here are three for now.

Grandbaby #4 Quilt

A sweet quilt for my sweet Shirley, born last June

This was a kit purchased from a magazine a couple of years ago. It uses machine embroidery applique for the quilt squares and Minkee fabric for the pastel colored borders. The light colored background is a subtle print of 100% cotton.

Away in a Manger Wallhanging

This was a kit purchased from Fat Quarter Shop.  Don't you just love kits?

 Last, but not least, Christmas Tree Throw
