Why Quilts Matter will be at QuiltCon!
The more I learn about my craft, the more it becomes obvious to me that knowing quilt history is crucial. In addition to the story the maker has when they put it together the first time, I also believe every quilt has a life and story of their own once they are “released into the wild”. […]
My stop on the Blog Tour for Fast Piece Applique

A collaboration with Rose Hughes
I first met Rose Hughes when I spoke at the BAQS Meetup at Fall Market 2013. Rose is an artist whose medium is quilting, and I love her work.

My new class is up on Craftsy, and a giveaway!
It’s my new class, Creative Longarm Quilting! When Craftsy first contacted me back in October, they were interested in finding someone who used their longarm in new and different ways to make a class on … new and different ways to use a longarm. I had to laugh because, for a while, I had taken it as […]
