I'VE BEEN PAGED







The Ottawa Citizen did a nice write up for the Pakenham Maple Run Studio Tour. That's one of the miniature quilts which I'll have ready for the show on March 29-30th. The article underneath has Chris Van Zanten's glass vase, it talks about how important it is to have nice objects around us "to promote happiness." Amen to that.

  1. That is a great idea to frame small blocks!

  2. Do you cut the mats yourself? Or take them to a frame shop? Great display!

    1. I cut the mats myself, it would be much to expensive to have a shop do it and try and sell them at a decent price. It's persnickety work, but worth the effort.

  3. I just found your blog and wanted to tell you how much I love your mini's! Wow...they're gorgeous!

    Do you use patterns? If you do, where do you get them? I'm a quilter and would like to try a mini.

    1. They are all paper pieced. You can reduce the patterns from a book, find them on the internet or use the EQ7 software (EQ is the best one to use you can reduce much easier and make patterns. )
      There's lots of information on the internet and plenty of books on how to paper piece. I love making mini's, give it a try!
