I don’t have any recent pictures, so may I walk you down memory lane?


One of my first quilts, from Barbara Brackman’s Fabric and Fabrications. I’d wager I made this in 2008 or 2009:

IMG_2512You see how modern it looks? It looks that way on accident.


I think this next top was my second quilt I ever made. I used templates I cut out of cereal boxes.



And because it’s about time to celebrate my podcastiversary, here’s one of my first quilt tops I ever talked about:


I’ve gotten better since then.

  1. Templates from cereal boxes? That’s how I did my first quilt. Yours is MUCH more beautiful than mine. We’ve come a long way!

  2. My first quilt was all templates too but looking at it I wonder why… it would have been so much easier to have rotarty cut it… must find a photo of it. It was pre digital camera day (for me anyway) and no longer has pride of place on my bed but is around still… gets used on the pull out couch when we have visitors

  3. Fun pics! I love seeing the different quilts and progress in the quilting journey. I had a thought to share while listening to the podcast but can’t remember it now. 🙂 Thanks for the entertainment!

  4. I got one of the Cheerios books today. I didn’t realize there were 3 of them until I got home. I’ll have to make another run to the store. I hate having incomplete series. 🙂

  5. Oh yes, yea! you’re back. We call that green dust the Green Death. My sister’s oak trees drip that stuff. It was wonderful to “hear” your podcast back on the porch. And soon, maybe, the cicadas and birds, too.

    I really like your first quilts. I remember when you felt you didn’t have good color sense in the early days but I am not seeing that.

  6. Glad to hear your voice, no matter how long it’s been. I’m so glad you have the beach to look forward to, and I know what you mean about the party. It will be fantastic once it actually starts!
