Grow Your Blog 2014

Hi! My name is Dolores! Welcome to my blog. I love gardening, photography and art.  Mainly, I am a quilt artist.  Most of my work is original pieces.  My daughter’s artwork has been featured in many of my quilts .  I do a lot of applique, free motion quilting and thread painting.  This is where I post about my artwork  and my process.  You can see  the  steps I go through to improve or learn new skills, or see a quilt come together I hope you enjoy browsing around my studio and my garden.  Be sure to follow me if you enjoy your visit.

Since today I am celebrating a half century of life filled with friends and blessings, I will be giving away a collection of 50 goodies to the lucky winner of this blog.
