Joyful stitches: elegant to playful

I am a cat-person. When one of my work colleagues was asked what kind of animal I am, he said I was like a cat: super friendly at times, and therefore nearly irresistible, but at other times rather aloof.

There’s so many quilts to be sewn! I have the next 4 quilts all planned in my head, with three of them cut out and ready to go already.

I’ve recently discovered Jelly Rolls and quilting with them. I find it’s a quick and easy way to quilt, and a great way to use up my stash of tiny strips.
