New Orleans ... hot + wet!

I have been sewing scrap quilts. Making new fabric from scraps!

Nothing new here. I can't claim to offer any new skill. I can offer support! Get out the scraps and make something! Finish the project!

Screw filling a closet with UFOs!

Get the scrap bin out and sew some bits together ... and keep going. It is mindless fun.


Facebook owns my quilt life ... no good.

Hi, Everyone.

Earlier in the year I had some real drama with facebook. Drag queen names are still being challenged and profiles are still being lost.

Along with profiles are pictures and friends. Gone.

I'm going to make a solid effort to bring my quilt life to this page. To start. I'm in New Orleans! George and I made it here a year ago and we are beyond happy to be living the adventure dream.

My quilting style is the same ... start with recycled and scrap fabric ... and sew!

I missed all kinds of responses!

Im sorry I missed all of those comments until today.

Thank you for writing to me and commenting about the circle quilt designs, asking for more videos, commenting about the bed Ive been working on - thank you for every comment.

I had a shitty new job for a few months and forgot all about looking at this blog.

Here are links to the other places where I hang out online. If I disappear from here Im either on facebook or youtube.

Making my own bed frame.

Ive been working on making a bed frame from salvaged doors for a few months.

I finally got to the point where I needed to trim my mattress to fit the new bed size.






Anther magazine quilt pattern --

This pattern went together pretty fast. It looks pretty intricate though. 



I messed it up, because its easy, right? 

 Pretty easy to fix.
