March Goals

The big goal for March is to get my Skill Builder Sampler blocked and bound! All while working through our move and getting it ready for a local quilt show near the end of the month.

Here is what it looks like currently in the new studio! Yes...the studio is almost ready. Inside painting got finished tonight. We decided to delay a Grand Opening celebration ....likely until sometime in May. Stay tuned for details. I can't paint the outside until the weather is above 48 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 24 hours. So....based on historical average minimum temperatures ...the painting will likely be in late April.

Most of the 'stuff' will get loaded in on 3/8/13.

Block patterns continue to be written for Rosie's BOMb....a block of the month (or 3 a month, creating up to 36 blocks and there 4 bonus blocks incorporated, so you even have choices within the skills you are learning) program featuring the Rosie panel now available at If you'd like to purchase it locally or participate in Rosie's BOMb...stop by Highland Quilts in Athena, Oregon or my new studio in Grand Coulee, WA (Midway Hwy and Main Street ....across Main St from the TeePee).


  1. That quilt is just fantastic. It was such fun reading about your progress along the way. Rosie turned out great. Congratulations on your new space.

  2. Oh I just love this quilt! Now where can we purchase the pattern on-line (I'm not local :( )

    1. The center fabric can be purchased from (as noted in the post. This quilt was created uniquely based on the 'Quilt-a-long' hosted by "Sewn by Leila". You can follow along there or it will be available to purchase as a pattern with 4 bonus blocks later this year. It will likely be a very large PDF download, or a CD which would include paper pieced print outs and templates for some of the blocks (as appropriate).
