A View of My Quilt Life

Ready, Set...

The groceries are bought, the recipes reviewed, movies picked out - all is ready for our Thanksgiving! 

Except for the custard pie, which I'll bake tomorrow night. Thankfully, the original custard pie recipe is safely tucked into my main recipe book - I can never, ever, never misplace it or try to substitute another recipe.  

DH will know if it's not the EXACT pie. 

Ask me how I know...

More importantly, in this quilter’s studio, Featherweight is oiled & ready, neutral bobbins are wound, new rotary cutter blade installed, cutting table is cleared off, with ruler at the ready.  Batiks are pre-washed and separated for the project at hand.

All that’s needed is Mystery Quilt’s Clue Number One posted at Quiltville.Blogspot.com.

T minus 3 days and counting!!

Well, due to the Road Trip, it will be Saturday morning before I can embark on the Grand Illusion adventure. And knowing me, I prepped a swatch card to carry with me in the event I fall into a quilt shop on the travels.  

It’s all about being prepared! 


  1. Very excited for the mystery here! I cleared off my cutting area yesterday, and laid out my piles of fabrics.

    Happy thanksgiving and road trip!
