Movie Recommendation: Green Book

I highly recommend this movie: Green Book. The characters are engaging and the dialogue is spot on. It's funny and moving. The music is great. It has a nice ending. What's not to love? Go see it.
(Not for little kids because of language and brief scenes.)

Record-Breaking Thread Useage in 2018

Yup, 38 spools of thread were emptied in my quilt studio in 2018! Usually I average about 20 spools per year, so despite the flimsiness of this measurement, it's a milestone.

Happy quilting!

New Puzzle Quilt Pattern!

Here's my first finish of 2019! A fun scrap Puzzle quilt measuring 45.5" x 60." I love this one; it reminds me of good family times. I used my scrap stash for this, including that black and white polka dot fabric that finds its way into many of my quilts. My sister Eileen gave me a pack of Cotton and Steel prints that I love. This pattern also has 6 photos of other design variations for inspiration.
