Quilt Challenge – The (Last) Reveal!

All good things must come to an end and that time has arrived for our Quilt Challenge Group’s reveals here on the blog. Regular get-togethers, and even themed challenges, will continue for most of the ladies in the group, but I’ll be enjoying their fun company at reveal dinners while redirecting my quilting energies toward… Continue reading Quilt Challenge – The (Last) Reveal!

The Same but Different – Quilt Reveal!

It’s a new year and a new quilt challenge – well, sort of! Three months ago each of us revealed the first quilt in our own individual, uniquely themed, three-part challenge series.

Despite the Rudyard Kipling quotation, the piece… Continue reading The Devil Made Me Do It – A Quilt Reveal!

Turkey Torpor and a Reveal!

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and a restless torpor has descended upon me. Does that make any sense? I can’t seem to settle into any one thing, be it reading, sewing, walking, television watching, or internet shopping. I was scheduled to work at the hospital today but a currently low census has several nurses staying… Continue reading Turkey Torpor and a Reveal!
