Quilting

I teach quilting and am known for my “reversible” or “quilt-as-you-go” classes. Many quilters enjoy piecing blocks and quilt tops but aren’t sure how to finish their quilts. It can be expensive to send out every quilt for professional long-arm quilting, and many quilters are daunted by trying to quilt a whole quilt on their home machines.

I teach students how to quilt one block, row, or section at a time and then join the sections with sashing strips. This is a technique that can be applied to many patterns, and in each class we look at a variety of quilts and patterns.  Students leave class with a new skill that they can apply to their other quilting projects.

Zucchini Time!

Last year, we only got a few zucchini from our garden. It was our first year, but any self-respecting gardener should be able to grow a decent zucchini. We were beginning to doubt ourselves. How would we survive a zombie apocalypse if we couldn't grow a simple...

Camping with Cats

I know, I said never travel with cats. Unfortunately, finding cat sitters would limit our travels so we have decided our cats need to learn how to camp. In April, we traded in our toy-hauler for a smaller, more comfortable fifth wheel. We've taken three short camping...
