card trick

There are still so many traditional quilt patterns I want to try. I've always loved Card Trick. The pattern is from Northcott fabrics. I will be teaching this class in the fall. My part is finished - someone else will be doing the quilting. just as well, because I am feeling very frustrated at my quilting. I am working on machine quilting the Knotted Bouquet. After working so hard to have everything even & straight - it looks not so good now! I sure hope I will love it again when it is finished. I am just frustrated that my quilting skills don't match my piecing skills at this stage.

an award winning quilter

I am, I am said Sam!!
yup I won a ribbon -I tied for first place in the Twisted Stitcher's Guild Food Challenge with my Menton lemons wallhanging. It was from a workshop with Velda Newman at QBL last year. Teachers & students alike are busy packing for this years wonderful line up of classes. have fun everyone!

Lemons from Menton because it is one of my favourite towns in France. You can sit at the waterfront & look out over Italy. They do with lemons what Pasedena does with roses!
