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!

Civil War Generals' Wives BOM - Month Five

Block five in this historical quilt series is ode to Irene Boggs (Dent) Grant, our 18th First Lady and wife of General (& President) U. S. Grant.   Bringing elegance and grace to the White House, Mrs. Grant was quite the socialite and hostess.  Her memoirs were published in 1975 - I may have to locate a copy as her story has peeked my interest.

I like this block very much.  I'm particularly drawn to the pinwheel in the middle of the star.
