Crystal Ball Block for Bookshelf Quilt

Much of this fabric is glitter and metallic so it tends to shine quite nicely when viewing in person.

Jar of Dirt block for Bookshelf Quilt

Things did not work so well on this block. I may have to re-make it. For now however, this is a block for my bookshelf quilt to represent Pirates of the Caribbean.

Labyrinth Walk Quilt


I completed this exactly one year after purchasing the pattern (that's how long it took me to get the guts to try!). It is a king size quilt with simple quilting. I'm quite pleased with it overall.

A Round Tuit


I found a round tuit pattern at Paper Panache so I just had to make one. I turned the little trinket (48 pieces total) into an ornament for the Christmas tree because I honestly did not think I'd ever get "a round to it" when it comes to making ornaments! 😜  I may make some larger ones with different colors as mug rug/coaster gifts.

Ewok's Photo


I made this little wall hanging for a friend. The goal was to make it look a bit like a framed portrait. 

The pattern was created by Kaitlin Sekeres. It is freely available at Fandom in Stitches

This Cat Needs Coffee

I created this mini quilt wall hanging for my daughter's birthday. She is a teacher that loves her cat and has been extra dependent on her coffee to get through the issues caused by the 2020 pandemic. I hope it brings her a smile.

The foundation paper piecing pattern was purchased from Quilt Art Designs

Here are a few more pictures of the process:
