This Week (29) I…

came back from vacation and jumped right into teaching 3 classes!  It is fun to see quilters expanding their experiences with free motion, design, and basic skills.  The thrill I get when they say, “It was so easy to put my top together once I squared my blocks!” Eurika! Lots of people can tell you how to quilt, but you need to decide what and when to apply all the tips.

I continued my monthly series on free motion quilting with the midarm Platinum 16 machine at Emma’s Quilt Cupboard on Monday.  By the end of class, the stress was leaving and the smiles were returning!  It really is easier if you trust yourself to let go…..

On Tuesday I taught a class on how to fill columns….see how well Vanessa did! We used Bamboo batting from Quilters Dream this month.


On Thursday I participated in a game of “Sew Tell the Truth”.  Two quilters stood up in front of a challenge quilt and 2 explanations for each quilt was read aloud.  The audience voted with clapping as to who the real quilter was.  The challenge was, “That’s a novel idea.”  Loads of fun!


The real quilters are, #1 Linda on the left, #2 Barbara on the right, #3 Deb on the left.

My quilt was titled, “Fortitude.”  To hear more about it’s design, read my newsletter which will be released on Aug. 5th.  If you haven’t signed up to receive my monthly newsletter, go to and sign up today.  It is call ezine: Sips & Tips.


On Friday I taught the Holliston Senior Center quilters how to make lanyards.  It was fun!  The Show & Tell we have twice a month there on Friday mornings is priceless!  Everyone is growing in their quilting skills.  Come join the fun.  Our next meeting is July 25th at 9:30a.m.-11:30a.m. Have you put a quilt top aside and want to quilt it now?  Bring it in for lots of quilting ideas.

A fun week…..back in the swing of quilting….the horses are history for now….
