Book Giveaway For Diamond Chain Quilts

Quilty Pleasures Blog is giving away my book Diamond Chain Quilts.  Slip on over to their blog to see if you can win.

I just finished sewing binding on my box quilt.

My latest adventure is an HQ Sweet 16 long arm sewing machine.  I am so excited about quilting on it.  The sample below is a small snap shot into this fun machine.

The young adults and youth group from church helped one evening to wrap towels for relief kits for Mennonite Central Committee.

Two towels will go into a bucket along with a tooth brush, tooth past, a wash cloth and other supplies which will be sent to

I spent one day last week teaching
 my class "Chinese Checkers" close to
 Charlottesville, VA. 15 ladies took the class.

  1. You got a long-arm machine!!! I'm so excited for you -- you will LOVE it! (Where did you put it?) That pile of lovingly wrapped towels makes my heart smile!

    1. Hi Candy, it is a sit down version so it don't take up so much space. I squeezed it into my sewing room. :)

  2. Love love LOVE the quilt on the cover of your latest book! Beautiful!
