How to Bind a Quilt by Machine

Teaching my Binding & Alternate Endings Lecture today at Garden of Quilts!  Join me today at noon in the gardens.  But if you can't, here's a quick little binding video I threw together.



Hope you enjoyed the video!  Here is a link to my old BINDING LESSON.  I've made a few adjustments from that original tutorial, but it's basically the same.

Happy Quilting!

Sewing Table Upgrade!


Many years ago, I purchased this foldaway card table. customized to fit a Singer Featherweight 221 sewing machine.  The table folds up and is lightweight - perfect to carry anywhere.  It also has extendable legs so I can adjust the height.

After 17 years, it was looking a little mangy!  Time for a makeover!

Tsunami (A Giant "Storm at Sea")

Tsunami (A Giant "Storm at Sea") Lap Quilt  
Printed Pattern and Template available at Missouri Star Quilt Company  
Digital Pattern is available at Quiltscapes  

Oh how I love this quilt design!  It's a supersized "Storm at Sea" quilt, a traditional quilt design.  Once when giving a trunk show, someone asked why the quilt looked like it was moving!  It's the play of the different angles along with the shades and tones of the fabric that move your eyes around the quilt, create an undulating effect, like waves on the ocean!  The best part?  It doesn't take long to make this quilt!

Tab Choir Quilt Show


Singing in the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square is such a joy to me, and as we finished a recording session last week with guest artist, Sissel, I snapped a little photo of the empty hall.  This is when two of my passions, singing and quilting, briefly collide!

Design Challenge: TV Quilts!


Don't you love it when, every once in a while, a quilt will pop up on the screen in a TV show or movie, or commercial?  I'm talking about Quilts on TV, not quilts to wrap up in while watching TV.  See if you can spot the quilt in this commercial

Buttercup Blooms ~ "Vivienne"

"Vivienne" 60" x 60" Lap Quilt by Deonn
featuring Buttercup Blooms by Gerri Robinson for Riley Blake Designs

Gerri Robinson's new fabric line caught my eye with its luscious butter-colored yellows on navy blue with little glimmers of silver ~ like a flower garden in the moonlight.  The fabrics spoke to me and I just had to get some in my hands to remake an old favorite.
