Hi, Welcome to my blog. I live on a grain farm in west central Saskatchewan, Canada. I have been a potter for over 30 years. In recent years I have been having trouble with my joints most used in the making of my pottery such as my wrists and shoulders. I stumbled across a quilt tutorial a few years ago and really enjoyed the process.I did a bit of garment sewing in my early teens so I knew a little about sewing. I find the bright fabrics and challenging techniques of quilt making lift my spirits and challenge my brain.

    Hi Colleen, you are showing up as a no-reply blogger, so I am responding to your question here. I’m so glad you like my newest quilt, and my stippling. I have to say that there aren’t really any surefire tricks, other than just practice. For a long time, I worried about “ruining” my quilts with imperfect quilting, so I stayed away from free motion, but the longer I do it, the better it gets. I doodle stippling designs a lot on paper to get the feel of it, and it really does help. Good luck!

    Hi Colleen! The paper piecing pattern is by Amy Ellis and called Trinkets. I believe the blocks in the Trinkets pattern is 9 inch finished.
