Global Quilt Auction

Recently I was asked to contribute a quilt block to Global Change. Quilters from around the world were asked to join together to help provide sanitation to schools in Central African Republic by contributing quilt blocks from their country which would be made into quilts for the Global Quilt Auction.  The quilt you see is the first quilt to be completed. There are more to come.

Global Change is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide safe clean water and basic sanitation to people living in extreme poverty throughout the world.   Visit their website at to read about their mission, projects, made a donation, or to place a bid for one of the Global Quilts.

Wild Women Do

Our local quilt guild's summer challenge was to create a quilt based on your favorite song. I thought I already have one of those hanging in my studio. I call it "Wild Women Do" based on the song by Natalie Cole, made famous in the movie "Pretty Woman."

It is hung right above my sewing machine. I keep it there as a reminder to myself..."what ever you do in life, make it fun."

Remember...Wild women do and they don't regret it. What you only dream about, wild women do!
