"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

What can I say? I feel I was born to quilt; my creative reason for being so to speak.
I make quilts and quilted items for family, friends and charity. Our local quilt guild has made quilts for soldiers and sent them to Iraq and two years ago we made a quilt for every Veteran in our area. We make quilts for children in our local shelters and we have Needfill Quilts on hand to give to people who have had a home fire and lost everything.

My blog title, "Quilting Yai Yai" doesn't mean I can speak Greek, although I wish I could. My father was Greek, but never taught me how to speak the language.  Yai Yai is Greek for grandmother and I am blessed with eight grandchildren - 5 boys and 3 girls.

Tomorrow I will figure out how to post pictures and share some of the quilts I've made.

Do something nice for yourself this weekend. You deserve it.


  1. How do you pronounce yai yai?

    I take back what I said about this place...
