For Pete's Sake If you want to use something from my blog, feel free, just let me know in advance okay? Because really, everything is copyrighted so I'd appreciate a link back to my blog if you use something, it's just common courtesy for Pete's sake! Say, who is Pete anyway?
Being a quilter for over 30 years, I've learned one thing that's for sure (as my good friend Ops - short for Oprah - would say) and that's this: You can't go wrong if you buy too much! You will never be forced to have a "close enough" fabric in a quilt again! I've always said that I make 30-foot quilts - or put another way, quilts that look good from 30 feet away! One day I hope to make "inchers." In the meantime, as I struggle to make points match, I'm happily trying to cover every bed, sofa, and chair in my house with a quilt - that's normal, right?
My quilt books can be ordered on line from Leisure Arts at: www.leisurearts.com My children's books can be ordered directly through me, just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We may live without poetry, music and art;
We may live without conscience and
live without heart;
We may live without friends;
we may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books,
what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope,
What is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love,
What is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining?

I just visited Marlene's blog and I LOVE her chicken/rooster quilt! And her bunnies...you all need to check out her work - she's great! And I discovered Marlene lives in Arkansas, don't know where but I used to live in Rogers, Arkansas before escaping! So I kind of feel like we're kindred spirits! Congratulations Marlene!! I know YOUR picnic quilt will be very happy at your house!
