Jenna and her son Jaime were searching the internet in hopes of finding a quilt to replace Jaime’s worn childhood comforter that had a sailboat appliqué on it. Jaime is a special needs teenager (autistic) and his baby blanket has always been a comfort to him especially when he was sick or sad. They came […]
This is Riley, a satisfied customer in Massachusetts. My friend Lorraine (Riley’s grandmother) selected the hot air baloon fabric for his quilt. I chose the sky blue and grass green for the coordinating fabrics. Looks like Riley likes our selections!
This is Zachary, a satisfied customer in New Jersey. Zachary is clearly enjoying his string quilt made in shades of blues and greens. Read more about Zachary in one of my previous blog posts.
This is Ronan, a satisfied customer from Northern Ireland with his sailboat quilt. He looks as if he is about to “drift off” any moment.
This is Bridget, a satisfied customer in Massachusetts. My daughter Sarah chose this Peter Rabbit fabric with images by Beatrix Potter and asked me to make this quilt for Bridget, her good friend’s baby.
This is Charlotte, a satisfied customer in Massachusetts. Charlotte’s pastel colored quilt was made with reproduction fabrics from the 1930′s and 1940′s. Charlotte’s beautiful smile proves she is still a happy customer three years later!
I recently had an order from my daughter Sarah’s co-worker Alecia. She wanted to surprise her daughter with a quilt for her 16th birthday. I decided the wonky pieced pattern that I had made for Sarah would be perfect for Ashleigh as well. This pattern is very young and contemporary in my opinion. I chose […]

I have come across another wonderful volunteer organization that makes and donates knitted and crocheted afghans to our wounded veterans. Rectangle 6 x 9 asks for donations of just that; acrylic rectangles of 6” x 9” in solid, variegated and neutral colors. Four times a year there is a “put together event” where the rectangles […]
I finally completed the “comfortghan” that I committed to make as a member of American Angels. I had the option of sending it to either the army medical center in Texas or directly to Iraq. The postage is the same for either hospital. The U.S. address: US Brooke Army Medical Center ATTN: Gift Coordinator Amputee […]
I recently made a lap quilt for my daughter Sarah. She wanted a quilt in black, white and turquoise and I wanted to make a quilt that was fast, fun and easy. I had taken a class given by authors Jane Davila and Elin Waterson from their book “Art Quilt Workbook.” This book is inspirational […]
My good friend of many years just recently gave a baby shower for her daughter Kelly. Kelly’s first baby is due in October. I met Pam when Kelly was a year old and my daughter Sarah was a newborn and we lived in the same apartment building. It is hard to believe Pam’s baby is […]
