So where did the name Big Rig come from????

People ask me over and over again - about the name of my business - Big Rig Quilting.

Why did I pick that name? Do I drive a truck?

Well, here I am not with a big Big Rig -but a little Big Rig in our back yard.  I had to pitch-in and help out the contractor - the Rig got stuck in the muck.




So, yes I can drive a Rig - but to hear the real story about where Big Rig Quilting came from you need to listen to my interview on Pat Sloan's radio show. Click on the picture below and go to the podcast!

Design Wall Monday - 28 April 2014

Well my design wall is still under construction,




So I needed to resort to the dining room table for this shot.  Working on some appliqué using some wonderful fabric by Marcia Derse for Windham Fabrics.   Two more blocks to appliqué and then I can sew the rest of the top together.



Head on over to Judy's blog to see what everyone else is up to today!

And - just had to post a picture - spring is trying to appear here in Rochester, NY!
