VW quilt

I love to see what people do with my patterns, and once in a while someone sends me a photo. I thought this one was a lot of fun. Debbie Allan made the quilt as a gift for her sister, who turned 50 - hence the 50 VW's. All the VW's are in dotty fabrics except for one in solid robin's egg blue, the color of her first car.

All my patterns are available at

Beneath the Surface

I'm happy to announce that my quilt, "It's Your Fault," got accepted into the Beneath the Surface special exhibit at Long Beach International Quilt Festival. I have permission to show the quilt, so here it is. You can see it in person in Long Beach in July.

Also, I've finished my daughter's baby quilt. I'm excited to show it, but I will wait until I give it to her in April. Now to start my niece's baby quilt - rockets and robots, here we come!

canvas purse

Here's a photo of the purse I made from my section of the painted canvas, described a couple of posts earlier. It was an interesting challenge, although it's probably too small for me to use. Maybe sometime, just for fun?

This is a view of the other side. I just love the colors! It's very playful.  It has a zipper.

As you can see, I lined the purse. Matilda always has to get into the picture.

I've been a juror in a criminal trial but it ended yesterday. Back to la vida creativa! Mostly I am in grandbaby mode - hope to share images soon.
