1. Step Back in Time Quilt Book

    I just received my copy of the new book Step Back In Time by Paula Barnes and Mary Ellen Robison of Red Crinoline Quilts. Even if there weren't a couple of quilts that I quilted in the book, I would still highly recommend it. There are 13 patterns in the book that are inspired by Civil War quilts, but they would all look good in modern fabrics as well. There is also a story accompanying each quilt…Read More

  2. Quilt Market 2018

And they have it every year in early March. My own guild as well as several …Read More

  4. Quilt Show Time

We will also have vendors, so plan to make a day of it. Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts is our featured quilter this year and some of her quilts will be on display, perhaps even some that I have quilted for her. Th…Read More

  5. Tributes and Treasures

    Quilt Market was exciting for several reasons, but one of the best ones was the release of Red Crinoline Quilt’s new book Tributes and Treasures. Paula Barnes and Mary Ellen Robison are the authors, designers and makers of the quilts in the book, but I was privileged to have quilted several of the quilts including the one on the cover. I started quilting for Paula and Mary Ellen before they star…Read More
