I am a maker of items who now can say, a maker of quilts as well.

Last week I did my first attempt at shadow quilting. I used the quilt I am making for when the grand kids come over for a visit.
One thing I didn't want to do is try this for a first time on a gift for someone.
On the weekend I caught up with my sister Debbie and she showed me how to "bury" the ends of the threads. All my quilts have been quilted from one end to the other side end. Quilting this style was different and I enjoyed it very much.
Next to try out on this quilt is some stencil quilting.
I love organic gardening, crafts and writing about my pig's adventures. Also I have a HUGGLES For Kids as an ongoing appeal. All kids love to HUGGLE a softie. If you want to make some and send them to me....email me.
