Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I love, love, love to plan quilts, to think about quilts, to buy fabric for quilts. I try really hard to not only start them, but to at least get the top together! I machine quilt and my 20 year old Bernina is still amazing. By day I am a manager in healthcare... and even then I sometimes think about the quilts I want to make. The kids are growing up and now I have more time and sort'a more money for it... sort'a not. One of my favorite things is to find new quilt stores to visit. I also love our pets, music, reading and am trying to love working out.:) Back to quilts, I probably have more blue fabric than any other, but in the past few years have really stretched and grown. My favorite style would be traditional and scrappy with a contemporary flair! Terry

Back to the blog ...finally!

The last time I was on here Nov. 2012. Wow! Time really does fly! In January 2013 I moved to New Mexico and started a new career as a Nursing Home Administrator. Not only did I move, but lived here the first year and a half without husband or animals. I am delighted to say, I am no longer alone and have settled in together quite nicely. In fact, Tuesday will be our 30th anniversary! 

I have to say during that time alone, I spent many hours being comforted by discovering new quilt…


Sorting through years of stuff!

Posted on November 22, 2012 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

I have a move in my near future and it is time to sort what I have and perhaps get rid of a few things. Today, between the cooking and making great, yummy food I found some time to spend in my sewing room. I sorted a few fabrics, but spent most of the time going through my "crafty junk drawers." Yes, it is plural, I had several. It is easy to see where my priorities are today... in my drawer I found glue sticks, crochet hooks, knitting needles, velcro, various lengths of lace and trim, a few…


Finding peace in quilting

My love of quilting has so many different aspects to it. I like to touch the fabric and run my hands across it.Sometimes I am surprised by the smoothness of the cotton and lack of texture, as the pattern can look so real that I almost expect it to feel the way it looks. When I walk into a quilt shop and do this I know that my blood pressure instantly drops.

I am delighted to see all the colors and patterns and how one combined with another can change how it looks. I am wowed and in…


Fitting Quilting In... A Necessity.

Posted on October 28, 2012 at 11:09am 3 Comments

When I first discovered this website, I was thrilled. Wow, people that are like me - that think and breathe quilting. I started posting a blog here now and then and found fun in that too. I could not only plan and start quilts, dream about quilting , but I could also share my thoughts about it too and inspired by what others are creating! I was also in a very productive phase with quilting and completing some projects.

But then, my professional life took a new path and I found myself…

terry, go to amazon or ebay. there are lots of books for fat quarters. i had a couple and gave them away...they were good for ideas only, as far as i was concerened...so many of the patterns called for like 19 of this fat quarter fabric. or 6 of another...heck, i could by yardage just as cheap. so gave the books away to a q freind who wanted the ideas in them. susan teagarten is one author, tho i may have the name misspelled. but a search will give correct spelling. connecting threads most recent catalogue has at least one in that i saw while skimming thru the new books section the other night.

any kind of fabric is used. good luck and let us know what you find.
