"What a good man you have there, Colette. I happened to catch our 16-year-old next door neighbor shoveling our sidewalk and driveway the other day. We were well below zero and it was really more a job of hacking at the ice and trying not to get…"

"I'm not an ipad person, but I have a thought if you have a regular computer. Can you email photos from your ipad to yourself and then open the email on a regular computer? If so, save them on your desktop (or somewhere), then when you want to…"

"I've drawn out the blocks and given the cutting sizes for the patches. The cutting for the flying geese is based on the stitch 'n flip method. Here they are:"

"Thanks for your concern. I'm mostly fine, but I hit my left knee really hard and of course it's the one I had surgery on this summer. I don't think I did any real damage, but I have one heck of a bruise. So, I've taken a photo of…"

"Not completely ice bound, but we've had days and days of single digit and below zero temperatures and we're not done yet. I tried to walk my dog and ended up falling on the ice, so I took her out the back gate into the snow and, while the…"

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I've recently left my job as an assistant editor of a quilting magazine and am now a freelance editor and pattern writer for quilting publications. Because I'm working from home, and no longer have a commute, I've actually got time to sew! I live in Colorado, love almost all types of quilts, and have more fabric than I will ever use. I'd love to be involved in swaps and possible a round robin.
How many quilts have you made?
100+
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I love to make quilts, and of course I enjoy them, too.
How long have you been a quilter?
30+ years
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I don't have a favorite really, I like almost everything.
Why do you quilt?
Because it makes me happy and relaxes me.
