Lunar Calendar for 2021!

 I just bought a copy of this awesome lunar calendar. And not just because my dear sweet niece made it and started selling them this morning on Etsy. Visit here: Amelia Sherman Designs. Please "like" it. It's exciting to watch the numbers climb! 

You can look up any day of the year and see what the phase of the moon will be. Plan your outdoor dinner party to coincide with a full moon. (Won't that be nice!) 

This calendar is a nice combination of art and science, and a useful decoration. 

Amelia is very artistic. Here she is working on a furniture-making project. 

Good luck, Amelia!

Bunting Quilt by Sandra in Brazil!


This beautiful quilt was created by Sandra de Faria from Brazil.  I love how it's light and airy, but has a gentle touch of vibrant colors too. The border makes a stunning frame. Take a look at the lavish quilting too. Nice job Sandra! 

Thank you so much for sharing this photo. We quilters love to see all the different versions of these patterns.  😀

She was inspired by my Bunting quilt pattern.

The Lasagna Quilt!

Turn scraps into a Lasagna quilt, layer by layer. So much fun, it's hard to stop. 
This quilt measures 51" x 67" but its easy to make it any size you like.

New Quilt Pattern: Adirondack

"Adirondack" is a quilt that would be right at home on the porch of a grand old camp in upstate New York. Add a some red and black buffalo plaid, and you can almost smell a wood fire. What a perfect time to be making scrap quilts, staying home in the winter.  :)

This quilt measures 60" wide x 80" long.

No seam-matching. Anywhere.

Happy New Year! 102 Spools in 2020!


Wow, what a year it was! I went through 102 spools of thread! I had the pedal to the metal this year making well over 2,000 face masks (some donated, some for family and friends, and many sold on Etsy).  Demand for masks has slowed down just recently, leaving some time for quilt making. Finally. 

Here's my latest quilt:

"Home Free" measures 60" x 84." Last quilt of 2020.
