The Fun to be Had with Cricut!

Oh the fun to be had with Cricut! I’ve been a member for about 3 years now and love being able to make my own cards or create cute little boxes. While I haven’t even scratched the surface of what is possible, it’s lovely knowing my little machine is there waiting for me when I’m ready.

So if you are looking for more stuff to do during our pandemic, head over to Cricut and check it out. And if you already own one of the Cricut machines, and haven’t yet signed up for Cricut Access, do it now. There are so many images to use, it’s unbelievably fun!

Next Level Placemats

Green fabric (I know, my camera didn’t pick up the right color of green that this really is!), a hint of leaves, and a bunch of feathers. A friend needed placemats, and this design just popped out of my brain. Swirly, windy, leafy, feathery fun!

Yep, I did it on my longarm even though they are so tiny (by comparison to a regular sized quilt). It’s super fun to turn my brain loose and see what comes out.

Happy quilting in the new year!

Taking a Break

It’s been about 12 years since I started longarming. Six of those years was a full-time effort for Towerhouse Quilts, and the next six years was working on quilts on weekends, after my full-time job duties for the week were over. It has been a glorious journey!

Here are a few of the quilts I’ve worked on recently for my customers…

But now it’s time for a break….

Time to fill up the creative well, work on some of my own projects, explore new ideas, continue on my knitting path….maybe even read a book or two! Nope, I’m not retiring. Just taking a longarm break. I don’t know how long the break will be, but I know at some point I will be back doing customer quilts because I do LOVE longarm quilting! And I love seeing all the beautiful quilts that pass through my studio on their way to you.

A big THANK YOU to all my customers over the years for allowing me to be part of your quilting journey.

Happy new year! Be well….and keep quilting!

City View Quilt Pattern Available as a download

Finally! Ok, so it took me a few years to get this pattern ready for prime time…but here it is! My “CITY VIEW” quilt pattern, which was featured in Generation Q Magazine way back in 2014 (they named it “city scape:), is finally available as a downloadable pattern on my Etsy site.
It’s easy and fun to make, and looks good in a variety of fabrics! Go modern, or traditional, or whatever you like. If you make one, send me photos! I would absolutely love you see what you’ve done.
