Latest projects



My January block for Amy for our virtual quilt bee A Notion or Two. She specifically requested wonky greens and whites with a red, orange or pink bird appliqued to the block.




My bird is a little funkier than the others so far but I happen to love him. I think he has pizazz and flair. Maybe a little sass. Panache.

Or maybe that is just what I'm telling myself since I couldn't hand applique a realistic looking bird.




I forgot to share this quilt that I made before Christmas. It is a cheater cloth from Denyse Schmidt called Country Fair. It lays across the back of a chair in our living room. That is unless I'm using it.

I love that funky, sassy, little pink birk. She rocks!

The bird rocks...not the "birk". Though Birks are pretty cool too.
