Last weekend…

How was your weekend? Mine become more precious once school is back in session. Though I have to work quite a bit, it’s nice to slow the pace and take a few moments to do something for me.

Last weekend, it was teaching small piecing for the Central Jersey MQG. It was a lovely location in a small church and a fun time was had by all.

Last weekend...

Neva took the challenge of going as small as possible.

Last weekend...

And she did a great job!

Last weekend...

Big thanks to the guild for hosting me and for being super folks!

Meanwhile, a few of my quilts hung in the Squam Modern Quilt Show in New Hampshire. I didn’t make it up there, but my friends took photos near my quilts–so I was there in spirit and cotton form.

Last weekend...

That quilt there is Kiss My Chocolate Box, a recent fave of mine in its debut show. Looks like it was a great exhibition! And I’m sorry I missed seeing my friends.

Have a great week!

In a magazine!


Oh, but first.

Thanks, friends for your mutual love of silks last week. To answer a common question: no, I don’t use a stabilizer. When you sew small pieces, some of the physics of woven fabrics are nullified. Give it a try to see…

And then I’m popping in here for a humble brag. Thanks to Sandi Hazelwood, I’m in issue 38 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.

Here’s the cover:


And here’s part of the spread:


I don’t know what to say.

Mostly I’m glad they spelled my name right.


They just turned some of my phrases into british-isms. But that seems okay.

Because they spelled my name right.

Have an excellent week!

Frolicking in Cambridge

Here’s a quickie!

On the way back down from Maine, I stopped over to meet up with and teach for the Cambridge MQG. I made a short video that sums it all up.

Fun place, sweet folks: it’s all good!
