Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Sorry haven't been on here for awhile. I am at the library using their computer and still looking for work. On the upside I have been able to do some quilting and will post my quilt next time. I took a picture with my camera and forgot to bring with me. We are beginning to see a lot of activity with our strawberry pots. We have had people coming by and buying them. I have sold 5 in the last three days. God is Good all the Time.
I have a cribe/king size Grace Pinnacle frame for sale for $795.00. This includes a carriage and shelf. Buyer assumes shipping. I live in central Illinois so if you are within 100 miles I can meet you half way. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

I have recently returned from Paducah. It was the first AQS quilt show I have been to. The quilts were fabulous and amazing. Riana said it is like looking at a magazine, very apt description. I was so impressed with the miniatures and am inspired to do one. The friend I went with has started an English paper piecing project and I found some paper pieces and want to start one. So many wonderful things to see, my brain is still on overload. Now back to reality for me.
Right after my college graduation in 2005 (I was 50 years old - it took me 32 years to get my degree in History!) I was hired as the Executive Director of the Ligonier Valley Historical Society. Fancy title, hellish job. It was a very good thing to do for three years although it took everything out of me. The Society has a 1799 Stagecoach stop museum called Compass Inn and…Continue
Hello campers! While recuperating from the foot surgery, I was working on the Thanksgiving cross stitch quilt Becky and I have been doodling on for years and at this time it is all based, partially quiltred and ready to have the binding sewn down. At the same time, I am working on the next quilt, one I am calling "Topography" right now. It may end up being a wedding quilt…Continue
A couple of months ago I splurged and bought a light pad. As I work on miniatures a lot, I thought that it would come in handy. I love this pad because it has really even light, and I can put a light above to see what I am…Continue

I'm thrilled to have another of my quilts hanging at the AQS show in Paducah this week. If anyone is attending this show, please take a picture and send to me!…Continue
Finally finished up both of these miniatures. This one is 15". This was more difficult to make than the vortex. I had a lot of problems with it. I think I am going to spend the weekend working on a purse of some sort
I wrote in my diary on April 24, 1982 that I wanted to write a book about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made. Although that idea started my writing career, I didn't get around to starting on Kizzie's book until 2003. Then other things in life took priority...
Now I'm proud to say the first book in my great grandmother's story Tying the Knot is finally out this…Continue

When the red and white quilt show , Infinite Variety was at the American Folk Art Museum, the 1910 VORTEX was the standout that so many remembered. I didn't get to go, but I enjoyed looking at photos. Thank God for the internet. I love red and white quilts, and I love miniatures. So when my friends and I ( mostly my idea) decided to put a display of red and white miniatures at Artist as Quiltmaker…Continue
