2003 Art Gallery Showing

Wow, I'm so flattered. Thank you so much readers and Internet folk that find me and my blog Good Earth Quilting.



 My 2004 Award winning "Silver Linings Crazy Quilt" It was the simple win of that quilt that made me start looking around online for something I could I use to share my quilts. 

And here we are 15 years later and going strong online. Do you remember all the histeria around the clock turning over in 2000?


I was working full time back then, I remember working on the border pieces, hand embroidering on my coffee and lunch breaks. It must have been soothing for me during that time when the student I worked with was a true challenge to remain calm and nurturing for her. As my little light began to shine, I began to find my niche.

I'd love to read about how you found your niche?



And so, to the changes coming to Good Earth Quilting. I'm working behind the scenes on an e-book that I hope will be out before Christmas and I'm working on many more tutorials for crazy quilting.

This all for now, I'm checking into all my archives to find those photos not shared with all of you. Hoping your Monday is a fabulous one. I'm off on a camping trip with my family, see you soon.

  2. I'd love to find a niche, a style or even color scheme I recognize as my own, so that a collection of my quilts would feel like an ouvre. Alas, I feel more like a Johnny appleseed of quilts, spreading my works to the winds (and letting the winds blow me where they will).
    Love seeing these old quilts of yours and finding out what got you blogging! I'd love to see a better photo of that Medusa quilt!

  5. I'm also enjoying a look back through my archives at some of the things I've made over the years. It's amazing how many things I'm discovering that I had totally forgotten about making. It's fun to see your earlier pieces too!

  7. oh, and my niche-I seem to be all over the wall but love the designing. I prefer a large center design because I have the attention span of a 2 year old and when I get one of something done, don't have the patience to do multiples-am ready to jump ahead to something else-more often than not the project currently being worked on is put aside as soon as I see that it will be as envisioned to get to the idea that popped into my head as I was working-I'm 75 years old, don't think that is going to change-I have to have a deadline usually to complete anyhting. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it-loved seeing all these-am a great fan of crazy quilting
