Helloooo is anyone here????

It has been awhile friends.
My parents have had several health issues, so I have had to help them
with doctors, hospital stays, house work, yard work, you name it.
One big thing that has happened is I left my 8 to 5 job and have 
begun quilting full time.

Teaching at MQX in Sept was exciting and fun.
I had great students, which always makes teaching even better.
Sad note is MQX will not be in Springfield, IL this year.  
I will have to wait and see if they pick another location.
Look at what my students accomplished in class.

Lovely group of ladies.  We made these wall hangings.
First designing and then quilting.  There was not enough time for everyone to finish but they did a great job.  The lady in the last picture forgot to change threads so hers is quilted using blue thread.

I have been busy quilting and want to share a few pictures.
My plan is to post all of the quilts I have worked on since July.This is mine and 
one of my favorite quilts.
This quilt was inspired by a wall mural at a Mexican restaurant. If you click on the pictures you will see that the navy blue fabric quilted in white thread giving a lace effect. 
Thus the name "Mexcian Blue Lace"  
This was at the "Quilts in the Boro" quilt show this past Aug.
All of my quilting is freehand.

I post on Facebook, but plan on posting on my blog more often this year.
If you're on FB like my business page I dew quilting or send me a friend request.

If you have quilts that need to be quilted with a panto or custom please send me a message. 
I would love to quilt for you. 

Until tomorrow.


  1. Looks like a fun class. Wish I lived closer!

    1. I had a lot of fun with these ladies. Maybe one day I will be somewhere close to you.

  2. I know how hard it is to take care of your parents, bless you!

    1. Yes it is hard. Especially when they don't do as they are told. My husband is disabled and I have a special needs son so sometimes I am stretched very thin. But we all survive
