Making Some Baby Quilts


Lots going on this weekend! I worked this morning, and now I’m working on embroidering 2 baby quilts. I have a queen size Zelda quilt half way quilted in my basement, but I am too tired to go quilt it. At least I can passively embroider these baby quilts while I watch old episodes of Archer. Tomorrow I’ll finish the quilting on all three of the quilts. I don’t know how, but darn it, I’ll get it done! Wish me luck! Continue reading

Anthems Quilt Entry!!!!


Here is a message from Richard!!!! I still have so much work to do on mine! I have 3 commissions ahead of it! Hopefully I’ll hurry the hell up and get some sh*t done!

the project. With about 6 weeks to go, there’s still time. Continue reading

The Pick Museum: Quilts and Human Rights


There it is, my quilt for equality hanging in The Pick Museum of Anthropology at Northern Illinois University. I got see it all trussed up looking fabulous next to some other amazing quilts!

The entire evening was overwhelmingly amazing! I got to meet so many unique individuals, and the show, in general, was amazingly curated. I’m so pleased to have a quilt there among such beautiful art pieces! Later tonight, I’ll write up why Cole Hall at NIU is so significant for the anthropology museum. I’ll also post some of the better images I find from the evening!

For now, I have some pictures from the evening to share. My camera died, so they are all taken with a cell phone, so bear with me. Continue reading
