Wow! Where has the month gone? I cannot believe I missed most of May and the beginning of June! Between the birds and the rains my garden isn’t doing as well as I would like. So I am having to replant some seeds and actual plants. The weeds however, are doing fantastic! I did get […]

I finally started working on the I Spy quilt for E1. All the cutting is done thanks to this die from Accuquilt and my trusty die cutter. I’ve got three big quilts with deadlines this month so I need to really get moving here, I’ll use these as leaders and enders, but here is a […]

Seams Like a Plan

To say Island Batik and its partners, Hobbs Batting and Aurifil Threads treat their four-dozen-plus Ambassadors well would be an understatement. This year, they have spoiled us rotten. They added AccuQuilt to the mix, and our new best friends at AccuQuilt sent us each a Ready Set GO!® die cutting system, with the 8″ die […]

AccuQuilt and Quilting

From the first time I used EQ3 in the early 1990s, I knew I’d never go back to drawing block and quilt designs on graph paper. A few months ago Electric Quilt released their newest version, EQ8.
