Yesterday felt like spring, this morning it’s snowing. The Sochi Olympic Games are coming to a close today. Yesterday my son turned twenty, away at college, but we had some peeks through social media. There’s “unrest” in Ukraine and Venezuela. Life on Earth.
On the personal sewing front, I’m making progress on the stash. Quilts of Valor sent me about 2.75 yards of fabric and a free pattern from Swirly Girls Design as my prize from the QOV Sew-In in early February. The fabric is remnants donated by Connecting Threads, and also real star field (seconds, never part of a flag) from Embroidery Solutions (sorry, don’t know where to link this). Very cool. Makes me want to start a new quilt, which I’m sure is the point. Thank you, all four organizations.
I'm Valerie, also known as Scooquilt. I am passionate about fabric and quilting. My quilts are colorful and modern, but grounded in traditional blocks. My degrees are in Fine Arts and Education. I'm retired from teaching and trying to quilt daily. Reading, gardening, and cats are also important to me.
