Last week I walked on our local lake beach and came across several white feathers.  Today I made a small art quilt. 11″ x 8″. I felted a feather with wool roving and beaded the spine with clear seed beads. Then attached my found feathers and used a simple running stitch to make the words. It is then fused it to a cotton backing with yarn around the edge.
I learned that white feathers are said to be kisses from heaven.  I will take it!

Little Pin Cushions

I completed one project. (The bird quilt in the previous post) I decided to do a bit of studio cleaning. 


I have thrown away a trash bag full of fabric scraps too small to do anything with and stumbled on some pin cushions  that were started in the spring.  I received a 2.5 inch pack of Moda fabric.  Don’t remember the “line” but it had muted colors. I made these pin cushion “blanks” at retreat at Sunset Texas – great retreat center by the way. So I filled them with Bird Gravel’nGrit today and closed them up. I like having small pin cushions around, I can keep a project worth of needles and pins on each one. Storing each with the project. I can keep the type of pin separate on each cushion or keep needles in a separate cushion. The small pin cushions measure about 1.5″ square and the large cushions measure about 2.5″ square.

Hot Birds

I have completed the bird quilt. This has been a labor of fun. These little guys each have a personality. 


I have been writing the instructions for each of the 12 birds and am offering them to a small select group of ladies out of Grapevine Texas.  They have enjoyed making them. One brave soul is making two quilts! But it is so fun and a little addictive!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Bird Quilt is Loaded

Been busy but got this project loaded. I have been working hard to get instructions written for these blocks.


Have a wonderful weekend. Happy father’s day as I know I will not post before this Sunday.

Love Birds – the pillow


This cute little pillow was designed and stitched up today. I struggled with the design and tried to make it more complicated than it needed to be. But I like the result. This will be a pattern and is part of a quilt designed by me and hopefully will be offered at Ozonequilts.com.  Thank you for taking a look!

Another Baby Quilt

I pieced this top for a baby boy, who is not yet named. The colors that I was told were gray and spearmint.  Well this is my interpretation.


This will end up to be 45″ square after I quilt it. I thought about putting the baby’s initial in the center. (Please note no baby name yet) I will not do that for this quilt – but the design lends itself well to that. I think I will write the pattern for this quilt – it was easy to put together but the pattern may be a little involved to write to result in an understandable document. I will have to think on that one.
Have a great day today. Look up and be grateful!

Baby Quilt for Ty


Just finished in the nick of time! The baby shower is in a few hours and I just completed this 45″ square quilt, it is signed, dated and ready to be wrapped.
I made big brother Tatum a quilt in similar colors – for The Texas Rangers baseball team so I wanted to coordinate with that quilt since the boys will be sharing a room. The top was started on Sunday May 4, loaded on the quilt frame Monday and quilted Thursday with just a simple meandering pattern. The batting is cotton so it draws up and becomes softer with each washing.
Yes last minute I know but made the deadline with hours to spare.
Have a spectacular day today and a beautiful mother’s day tomorrow!
