My Truth

I have to admit that I have not been keeping up with posting these shirts each week like I promised. I am finally getting it back together.

This week's t-shirt is focused on a saying that my grandmother used to say. I laugh now to think of her saying "It's easy to remember the truth."

Please check out my and order a shirt today. The orders will not get filled unless all 55 shirts are sold. Please please help me  reach this goal.

New Book

I wanted to create something that was unlike all the art quilt pattern books available. I also wanted to make it clear and easy for all levels of quilters. This turned out to be a great way to use all those saved scraps.

The first scrappy quilt I made was such a hit, I thought that maybe other quilters would want to know how to do this. I also wanted this pattern to be a break from rigid rules of piecework. The blocks are free form and ever changing. It gives the quilter a chance to be creative in building the blocks.

The book features the pattern for applique of a lady with flowing hair. So easy to use.

I am excited that this book is available now at

Atlanta Pride

I moved to Atlanta many many years ago. I find that without travel one tends to take home for granted. Recently I visited South Carolina and it opened my appreciation of the dry land in Atlanta. While in South Carolina, I looked over at the wet marshland off the side of the road as we moved along, just curious about walking in such an area. I could see myself sloshing through with big rubber boots, not the cute sandals I was wearing. That was not my idea of an afternoon stroll. I do have to admit that I loved the massive old trees that had been so strategically preserved.

Yesterday, I was riding along an Atlanta highway and I looked over to the dry grassy area. I found myself thinking that I like the dryness. Instantly realizing that it was training and association that fueled that love but loved it none the less.

I appreciated the wetlands but couldn't wait to get back home. This new t-shirt is my tribute to the city I have come to love. The picture is from my quilt A-T-L which is the skyline of Atlanta. This week I have offered it in two colors.
