Sorry to have been gone so long from blogging but I have great news! I recently retired from my full time job to be able to spend more time in the quilting world! Yea!!! I have wanted to retire for several years but it just wasn’t feasible yet. Anyway, I am sooooo glad to be able to immerse myself in more designing and quilting! (I keep using the word “retire” but I don’t plan on sitting on the deck in my rocking chair “retired” any time soon – I have LOTS of plans for other adventures.) So keep checking back to my website as I’m brimming with ideas that I want to share with you. (I am REALLY excited that an artist friend of mine and I are working on combining painting on cloth with quilting into a very unique project!)
I also hope you recently saw my planting pounding article in the May issue of American Quilter! This is my first time to be published in a national magazine; especially of the caliber of American Quilter so this is an amazing time in my life! So if you’re wondering how I make these unique plant poundings, check out this technique article in the May issue. There is also a web article referenced in the same issue on how to make a framed plant pounding. These make such great gifts since they can set on a table or be hung on the wall. American Quilter magazine was great to work with and I hope we can do some more articles together in the future.
That leads me to another area that I’m expanding in now. I have given lectures and workshops locally but am now extending this into other states. If you would like me to come to your quilt guild or quilt shop and do a lecture/ workshop on plant pounding, Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
