Hand Quilt Along: Take 3


3 weeks has flown by but I have made some progress and the pattern is beginning to take shape on the back side of this Goodwill find. I have totally abandoned the quilt stand for  hoop and lap.


Because this quilt project is so large and massive I am almost embarassed to write that I have the corners wound up and bound with pony tail hair bands…


I have never been a fan of purple but this ‘winter quilt project’ is taking me into spring and I am falling in love with the purple square centers of of the wedding ring blooms.






3 weeks for each update posting and in 3 weeks and I will be retiring from 20 years working at one of our local high schools as a para educator in special education coupled with an additional 10 years as a special needs para at the elementary level.

Quilts: Love For Her Family Was Her Legacy

March 8th was International World Women’s Day and the month of March is Women’s History Month. I was reminded of these important days by a blog post at the beginning of March by Amy Cohen @ https://brotmanblog.com

So many strong, inspiring, beautiful, creative, empowering, courageous women in my life came to my mind; that I found it impossible to focus on just one or come up with something I wanted to post to celebrate this important day. If I listed their names and the affect on my life I would not be able to stop writing for every woman I have met along my paths journey has shaped and formed me. From the tiniest negative to most empowering positive. We are truly the sum of who, what, when and where on our path, from everything we have read, to every conversation, or visual impression we have seen.

But today on FB, a very dear friend, Mindy Coppersmith, of close to 55 years of friendship, shared a post that said “share me”

A Legacy of Quilts 



“Margaret Hubl passed away last July in Nebraska at the age of 89, but it’s safe to say her legacy will continue to live on.

You see, Hubl was a quilter. While some people make quilts as an afternoon pastime, she made them to communicate her love for her family.”
