About Me

My photo
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

1st Quilt Quilted on my Long Arm

1st Quilts on my New Long Arm

Wow, What a beautiful day! 78* here in SD, and yet snow is predicted for the higher hills tomorrow. That's our ever changing weather...
We sure could use the moisture though.

This morning I finished quilting this little quilt. I just did an edge to edge panto and it is the 1st ever quilt I have done on my long arm. Whew hew!!!
The tension was super, I think my stitching could be a little longer but other than that I was real pleased with it. It was so much fun and hardly can wait to start another! It is one for Project Warmth which is thru the Black Hills Quilt Guild that I belong to. They are given to many different organizations including WAVI, Childrens Cancer patients, Fire Victims, the childrens pediatric at the RC Hospital, plus many more.
Most of the materials are donated, as well as the time to piece and quilt. Such a Wonderful cause.
I ordered a couple more pantos and I received them today at the post office, and am so ready to play some more.
