Welcome Quilting Friends, I am so glad you stopped by today!!
Are you a bit of a “quilting rebel”? You love quilts and follow the directions and/or color suggestions that are currently popular.
But in your head, you have all kinds of wonderful quilting ideas that really don’t “fit in the box” for quilts that your other quilting buddies are making.
This is the place to spend time then, because I tend to be a bit of a “quilting rebel” too.
Beginner to expert quilter.
Use simple patterns that can be adjusted for personal use and likes.
Want to have fun, be encouraged and inspired.
Think “outside the box” when it comes to patterns and finished quilts.
Maybe a bit of a quilting “rebel”.
Tend to start with traditional patterns as jumping off point for quilts.
Want quilts to be personal and give happiness to yourself and others.
Like quilt shows for ideas and networking with other quilters.
Use fabrics that you like instead of fabric that pattern may call for.
I want to inspire and encourage you in your quilt journey. This blog is a mix of quilt show, quilt journal, helpful tips, quilt resources, and current projects.
Passionate about quilting – all parts of the project.
I have been quilting 40+ years!
Willing to mix techniques in a single quilt.
Rarely do complicated patterns but use them for ideas.
Normally start with traditional pattern and add my own twist to it.
Love colors and patterns – I have been told I am “fearless” when it comes to mixing stuff up on my quilts.
Was re-purposing/re-using long before it was popular.
Love to hand quilt and utilize machine quilting too.
Tend to think “outside the box” for solutions to completing a quilt.
Location: rural Indiana, USA

These are the two rules I follow for quilting (well ok, three):
Always buy the best supplies and fabric you can afford.
If using a sewing machine, get comfortable with it.
Take time to sew straight seams that are consistent in size all the way through the quilt
I would love to see your quilts too, so please email me photos, brief descriptions, and permission to post. I really want to start a gallery of readers quilts for fun and to encourage other quilters in their quilting journey.
Thanks for visiting this blog. Have a great day quilting.
