A HUGE thank you to each and every one of you who has been sewing along and sharing photos via Instagram and FB and email. I have gotten so much joy seeing all of the lovely combinations and colors and variations you have chosen. I do hope we will continue to see more of these photos as the quilts are finished. 

It is a joy for me to share my love of quilting with you. I am thankful that you are here and sharing this journey with us. With all that is going on right now with the pandemic, please take extra good care of yourself and those you love. And please let me know if there is anything I can do to help any of you.

For those who are scheduled for a visit from me, please know that I am rescheduling any group visit or workshop that you request. I want us all to be healthy so we can quilt for a long time to come. Be safe and stay well! 

Enjoy every stitch!



  1. Are you going to do another sew along? I am behind on this one already, but I would love to do another sew along with you.

  2. I've seen a few of the quilts and they are stunning!!! Good job Diane!

  3. I love how my panels are looking. I made 12 because the introduction said 12 panels for a twin yet the final says 9.

  4. Thank you thank you! This has been fun. I'm going to try and put it all together while also WFH...stay safe.
