Meet Smoke Rings, from You’ve Got a Point!

Happy Saturday, y’all! Gracious. I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted! I just blinked and the month was gone. Between my son turning 16 and winding down the last days of his freshman year of high school, my daughter finishing her freshman year of college and coming home from the summer, and the usual life/work stuff, the days have flown by. The good news is that my book release date is closer than ever! So I’m here to get this preview series back on track! In case you  ...

Meet Corn Maze, from You’ve Got a Point!

Hi, everyone! Today I’m kicking off a series of posts about the quilts in my upcoming book, You’ve Got a Point! (You can find the introduction post HERE.) I’m starting off with the cover quilt, Corn Maze. Corn Maze comes together quickly with 8” finished blocks, for a nice lap-sized quilt at about 56” square. As I worked on the designs for this book, I played around with some “offset” one-block designs – blocks that had setting strips on two sides, which would create a sense of movement  ...
