About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

Modern Quilt Block

The Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild is working on one of their Modern Quilts
for Charity, they chose a lovely Fat Qrt & we can add up to 3 solids for a 12.5 block, this is where I am at right now, learning the bowtie block from Canoeridgecreations.com, this will kill 3 birds with one stone, who-rah!


  1. Thank goodness for my sharp spring back sissors

  2. I just saw your comment on Plum and June's post today. I wanted share a site with you, in case you are interested. Alyssa at http://pileofabric.com/ is starting a beginner's all you need to know about quilting series on her blog.

    Your bowtie blocks look great so far! I have not tried this block yet, is it easy?
