What a difference a year makes!

Dear fellow quilters,As you will recall, last year at this time I was frantically quilting the 15 Christmas quilts in my year long project and hardly had time to breathe, let alone do anything else.  Well, 2014 has been radically different and as I look back on 2013, I am amazed at how different two years can be.  This year I have been working on three different quilts and as the year winds down, I am wondering if I will finish any of them!It has been a year of health challenges and I am sure…See More

Chattanooga Quilt Show

Posted by Linda Lane Thornton on September 16, 2014 at 12:24pm 1 Comment

I had a superb time at the Chattanooga Quilt Show, my first quilt show in the USA and my first retail therapy for the longest time.  Even so, I spent very little, partly because there was so much on offer.  A man tried to sell me a BIG long-arm quilting machine but I explained that it wouldn't fit into my boat.  So I bought a few fat quarters to make a journal quilt of the Blue Ridge Mountains, complete with a bear.
