Hi ... my name is Colleen and I am a wife and mother living under the sun in San Diego, California. I have one son and one daughter and three dogs ... My furry children. I created this blog so I can ... well, what else? Talk about quilting ... and the other things most important in my life ... family and friends!

Before I left for vacation I longarmed a couple of quilts. This one is a lovely Christmas present ...
I hope I haven't already posted this ... So if it looks familiar, you'll know why!! Isn't it scrumptious?
This was a stash class I taught a couple of months ago. I love her colors; most of these fabrics are homespuns and the addition of the striped fabrics really make this quilt zing!!
I opted for a simple stipple; the quilt is for a man, and I love the texture a stipple gives a busy quilt. Used my favorite Superior Omni thread in the Bronco color. Next time I buy this color I am buying two cones ... One for the machine and one to wind bobbins! I have said it before but I love this color and use it a lot ... It's a caramelly-brown color.
Love it! Wouldn't this be super cute with another of the same on twin beds in a boys' bedroom?!
