Welcome to the 2017 Row Along – Christmas Caroling Blog Hop!   Thank you Marian Pena of Seams to be Sew for all the work that you do to organize and host this hop.  Also, a huge thank you to  Vanda Chittenden for taking the time to post my row on her blog. This is my second year doing the hop and has been a great experience in doing something a bit different with my Electric Quilt program.  My row this year is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.  I immediately thought about the verse… Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Had a very shiny nose, And ifRead More →

New Pattern Pinstripe Crossing Pinstripe Crossing In July, I started something new. I started a new tester group to help me test out my new patterns, plus was in the process of creating a secret Facebook group just for my testers.

But things went very pear shaped straight after that. I am only now feeling some normality returning to my life, so after I finish of some commitments with some hops andRead More →

So what do the designers to with the signature blocks? Well, you can turn them into a memory quilt. How awesome! That’s why, when I ran my very first quilt alongRead More →
