My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Since I won 22 half yard pieces at the Guild meeting, I have been planning my “heart attack” quilt, table top, wall hanging, etc. The heart die will be here tomorrow. Can’t wait! I have 30 squares waiting!
