At the time I made this quilt, I posted instructions on how to make a snowball block and how to sew a quilt top together, but I also photographed the process I go through to make appliqué letters.
After finishing the letters on the aprons, I thought it would be a good time to post [...]
After helping make an apron over the weekend, I had the idea to make another apron for a little girl who celebrated her birthday today. This girl, well she’s not just any girl, she’s Jett’s girl. Some how, some way, months ago Jude and Jett got the idea that they both had girls. Jett says [...]
I finally got this quilt finished up last week. Yesterday I washed it up, took pictures of it and got it ready to send to my customer. I’ll have fond memories of this one: it was the project I was working on when I found out I was pregnant. Also, because of that, I have [...]

I have started the next quilt project on my customer list. I’m still not done with the Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt; I am done with the quilting, though, a that’s a relief, it took a loooong time. I’m in the process of hand binding it now, and that could take a while, too – I’ve [...]
