A Real Aries Birthday

April, 2015: April is a great month! I turned 60 on the 8th and had a real Aries birthday shooting the two new videos for on line classes for I Quilt that will air sometime in May or June. Check back and I will have a link if you would like to sign up. We had a fun shoot and put together the course “Color Theory for Quilters” and “Artful log cabins”


April 19th is the start of the 2015 Alegre Retreat! I am so excited. We have a full house and great teachers. For more about Alegre Retreat go to the web site at We are getting ready to put the 2016 information up at the end of the month. Also “Like” Alegre Retreat on Facebook  and see what a great time we are having as I will be posting daily from the best pics of the day.



Teachers for this year are Jane Dunnewold, Linda Colsh, Joe Cunningham and myself. 2016 teachers will be Nancy Crow, Rosalie Dace, Cynthia Corbin, Gregory Case and myself.

I hope you have a creative Spring



March Has Come In Like A Lion

March, 2015: March has come in like a Lion with lots of snow and cold weather. I taught my new Artful Log Cabin class at Santa Fe Quilting on the two most snowy days in a long time but the quilters got through and we had a wonderful time. I love teaching the artful log cabin class everyone’s piece always turns out great! See pictures of mine in my January post.

Still working on selling my house, staging the guest house now then a trip to the dump and all should be in order for the big crowds that will come house hunting soon!! Then we will be off to California to be close to family and friends. We will miss our family and friends here in Santa Fe but we have several good excuses to come and visit this wonderful place.

I am also preparing to shoot to video on line courses for American Quilters Society. I am very excited about that we are doing two classes. One is Color Theory and the other is Artful Log Cabins. Lots of prep work but it is also fun playing with all of the fabrics and designs that we will be showing. Not sure of the start up date yet, we are shooting the first of April, check back and I will post the particulars.

I have a new on line course that I run myself on working in a series. We are doing the very first one, I have 18 students and they are all creating wonderful one of a kind series. Both of the one line course that I run will be starting again in June. Color and Composition and Design and Working in a series. If you think you might be interested in either course send me an email and I will add you to the list to send out a reminder when they will start. Hope you are keeping warm and dry.

love and hugs

Happy New Year To All

January, 2015: Happy New Year to all. 2014 was a very good year and I am looking forward to a great 2015. I will be doing lots of traveling and teaching which I love to do and lots of time in my studio which I love even more. I am developing a new class called Artful log cabins where you recreate a photograph with log cabin blocks. I love creating art quilts and I love making log cabin quilts so this puts the two together.

Here are three examples of artful log cabins.
