I'm so glad I came across your blog this morning! I've spent a happy 1/2 hour looking at your beautiful projects while nursing a sleepy baby.
We live on the Snake river in Idaho so I completely relate to your love of kayaking/outdoors AND quilting. Quilting is the perfect thing for cold weather, then out to enjoy beautiful nature when the weather warms up! We purchased 3 tandem inflatable kayaks last year and they have been SO much fun.


Wow, that Y seam and paper piece P are great! Do you have any resources for learning paper piecing? I'd love to learn how to make neat things like that.


Love the "P" letter block and pot holder! So cute and fresh. :)


hmmm...I might need an "A" block. ;) So cute Penny! Oh how fun that would have been to be there!

Very fun addition to the apron. Have a very blessed and happy Easter!


Love it - gorgeous eye candy, Penny! Have a wonderful Easter!


I am getting such a happy vibe off all the pics on the different blogs. I just know you are a good teacher, I feel it in my teacher bones!

your Y seam is adorable. Looks like fun!


I had the best time at the retreat, and you are such a great teacher! I have checked out a book by Ruth McDowell from the library, and I keep bookmarking pages of techniques to try. Thanks for being so encouraging to all of us that we can make awesome blocks like yours!


What a great way to practice my paper piecing and make useful, thoughtful teacher appreciation gifts!! Deanna - Skinfizzical.com

Love those new prints! I just saw on Denyse Schmidts Facebook page that she said there will be a limited FMF reprint Jan 2012!!! Thought you might like to know! :) This is what she said in a comment to a post on her Facebook wall:

Adding a fabric collection specifically for chain store distribution (under DS Quilts Collection) is a way to strengthen the Denyse Schmidt brand overall, which benefits everyone. A Philly-based brick-and-mortar shop owner who was in my workshop this weekend put it this way: "a rising tide lifts all ships." My independent shop customers will always have different fabric designs than the chain stores. I'll be adding new quilt patterns for my independent customers this fall. With FreeSpirit, I'm reprinting a limited Flea Market Fancy collection for January 2012, and a whole new collection of prints for FreeSpirit in Spring 2012. My new book of 20 traditional quilt patterns (STC Craft) will also be out in spring 2012. Hopefully, we'll get more and more people sewing and quilting, and exploring all their shopping options!

And there was much rejoicing!! YEAH!!! :)


It's fun to see my worlds colliding. I read your blog, Ayumi's, and Amanda Jean's. These potholders remain inspiring no matter how many times I see them.
