My family went to Lake Tahoe in California in August.  I hadn't been there in quite a few years, and boy has it changed.  There are parts of it that are so built up and resort-y, it almost breaks my heart. However, with their usual forward-thinking, the Californians sa...

I've been planning to put a new quilt on my bed for at least three years.  The one I had before was literally eaten by the sun and it's so faded the original colors are unrecognizable.  Still, a queen sized bed quilt is rather a pain to make and even more daunting to q...

 Hello again.  It's me, Carrie aka the zen quilter!

It’s been quite a while since my last blog. I think maybe I wrote after the election (which I still cannot talk about!) But I can't remember writing anything since then.   So first, I apologize to those of you who...

Where Have I been?

It’s been a month or two since I’ve written on this blog, I know.  I apologize, but I seem to have lost my blogging mojo. I have, however, been working on a few things: First, I  I started quilting the really large quilt  I made in the summer (no real...

Just a warning - this blog is not about quilting.  It's not even about creativity. I'm breaking some rules with this blog - hijacking it to talk about something entirely different.  In all good conscious, I have to. Because I know I've taken my good life, my community,...

Today is such an exciting day!  Why, you might ask?  Because it's Day 2 of the Cloud 9 Blog Hop, and I am super excited to present my tutorial for the block I designed, which I'm calling "Good Points."  

The fabrics were generously donated by Cloud 9 Fabr...

I was able to spend some time this week and do a Color Play Friday.  I think the palette I came up with is a little weird, but it could work.  I ended up choosing two purples, because I though a person could go with either one.  All that said, here is my take on Color...

It's Wednesday and I absolutely intended to post a blog today but here it is, 9:15 pm and no blogging has been done.  That's because of my new project.  I have had the idea for quite some time, but I was not allowing myself to start anything new when I had so many old...
