Have you seen the latest issue of Homespun?  My quilt Stonehouse Baskets is a project in this issue – No. 111 Vol 13 No. 8. Catherine Sanchez got in touch with me last year and asked if I’d do a project for the magazine.  Of course I said yes as I’ve always enjoyed reading Homespun.  […]

We […]

  Don’t you just love quilting retreats?  The preparation that went on before is such that one would think I was spending a week there!  But you never know…… I may get tired of one project and want to do something else.  When I got to the retreat I found that most of my quilting […]
