Morning Glory block applique and embroidered by Ruth BlanchetThis year my goal is to do more quilting... a lot more quilting. As always, I have lots of quilt ideas floating around in my head, most of them involve applique... and I know I need to get them out. I've already made a start by creating my new Morning Glory block. Originally designed for my BOM Spring Life program, I rearranged it to create a whole new design and of course, I now have this available on my website: Morning Glory design

Stealing isn't Cool!

It's taken me a little time to write this blog post because I am still in shock-horror of what has happened to me. The purpose of this post is to make my fellow quilters, teachers, and colleagues aware of what is going on. When nothing is said, nothing changes so my hope is that you will spread the word so this sort of behavior doesn't continue.

Personal Unique Gifts You Can Make Easily

Posted by Ruth on 23 November 2016 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

Isn't if funny how when you are out shopping you find something you never went out to intentionally buy, but the thought of it just sparks a brilliant idea? In fact, the thought gave me a great idea to create some very personal unique gifts to give away. I was actually in the art section of a store looking for sticker albums for the kids (gosh I didn't know these were so hard to find!) when I spotted some inexpensive ready framed canvases. Okay, so I'm not a painter, but I thought why not use them to mount some of my flower blocks!

More Grab-a-bags

Posted by Ruth on 9 June 2016 | 0 Comments

These grab-a-bags are a little different to what you normally see as usually you don't know what's inside - mostly mystery items. There are four patterns inside and the bag is only $8.00 so that's $2.00 per pattern, but for our grab-a-bags you get at least one pattern you want. There are several to choose from. Select your favorite pattern and receive 3 more!
