Blog for 2019
A look back at my creations and news for 2019!

I’ve taken to naming my quilts after towns in New Mexico. The names of other people’s quilts always sound so clever. It’s a hard thing to do – naming a quilt. So I decided to just google ‘towns in New Mexico’, and pick one that fits.

I received this top in 2012 as part of a barter for longarm services. The woman had numerous unfinished tops to choose from, and I chose this one.

It’s been hanging in my closet(s), first in Texas, then came with me to NM. It’s not really my type of quilt. I probably thought I’d practice on it…and never did. I decided to cut it up and play around with the blocks, and ended up with this:

So, this was better. But no magic going on. I then chose to cut arcs and make a version of a double wedding ring. The pattern is by Sewing Party, called My Wedding Ring.

Progress…. Add a little color in there:

Now I’m loving it. Onto the longarm:

And the big reveal~a very different quilt to be sure.

Cimarron is based on a Kaffe Fassett pattern called Haze Kilim. I went a little rogue on the border, but not much. I used Patina Batiks by Hoffman – I love them.

I think there are 11 different shades in here.


Adding the sashing in between blocks.

It’ll be for sale, as soon as I end my procrastination that is called…’List your things in your Etsy store’.

I miss this baby….
