  • Throat Chakra Musings

    Throat Chakra Musings

    So I’m beginning to contemplate my next Chakra Quilt. This time I’m going to be working on the Throat Chakra or Vishuddha.

    Manipura Quilt Finish!

    Oh… I am so excited to have finished this quilt today! It’s our Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting tonight, and I’ll be able to share this thing!

    Root Chakra Quilt Progress

    I’ve recently started work on a new project, and I’m using the root chakra for inspiration. A while back, I took the ‘Process Pledge‘ on Rossie’s blog and so I wanted to write a little more on the process of this quilt. This quilt symbolizes a path to heath and healing to me. I’ve been […]
