Featured Quilt-of-the-Week


Catch a Rainbow ~ Emily & Makana ~ Santa Maria, CA

Emily spent Christmas visiting her family in Santa Maria, CA.  Her granddaughter, Makana, came back to town with Emily for five days.  Makana wanted to make a quilt with her grandmother, so they sat down and chose a pattern.  After a quick tutorial with the color wheel, Makana chose some dark and light batiks and they went to work.  The quilt turned out fabulous!  The pattern is “Catch a Rainbow” from Simple Quilts & Sewing #123 July 2012.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt ladies!

Great way to brave the weather!


With all of the below freezing temperatures we’ve been having lately, I would love to have a “secret cozy quilt retreat”!  Either that or travel down south to warmer areas. There must be something fun and quilty happening somewhere warm.  I better check myqsn.com.
