Most of my posts involve quilting, but you might also see photos I've taken in art galleries, in my studio, kitchen, or garden, or in faraway places if I'm traveling. Where I go, you go!
Icelandic poppies blooming in my garden.
A brilliant installation at the Art Gallery of Alberta.
One thing I do take seriously is the quality of my work. I strive for excellence, always.

The large star is on the BACK of Tracy's quilt (I flipped a front corner up for the photo). This quilt could easily be reversible!
My own project using Ricky Tims' "Kool Kaleidoscope" technique.
Margaret gave me free reign on her Buggy Barn, so of course there are funky feathers and swirls!
Quilting in progress on a commissioned piece.
I set challenges for myself that force me to try new things. Once I dive in, nerve, determination and resourcefulness get me through. It's not always pretty or graceful, but I always learn a ton!
My most recent art quilt.
The challenge here? Stitching applique down using the long arm instead of using my domestic machine!
It went better than I'd hoped, and no blood was shed, so this goes in the WIN column!!!
My APQS Freedom gives me wings (sorry Red Bull!), and all of my quilting is hand guided.
No computer for me!

Even with my dream machine I have plenty of UFOs (UnFinished Objects). Of course, I don't let that get in the way of starting new projects!
I guess I'm a bit eclectic (a polite way of saying All Over the Map), but I sure have fun!

My granddaughter. I love that she accidentally made a heart with the edge of her quilt!
TIME FOR A GIVE AWAY!
If you've stayed with me this far, you deserve a chance to win a prize!!!
The winner will commission a small piece (4 x 6 inches) of original art designed and stitched especially for them!!! Winner will suggest a theme, and I will do the rest. Fun for both of us!
Wildlife themed work in progress. Poor coyote doesn't have eyes yet!
