When I first kicked off the idea for this series on wool applique, I had not factored in final book edits and the Christmas longarming rush! I’m finally getting back to a more organized schedule, and have been longing for the chance to work on some of these new projects that have been percolating along […]
Vision Board 2015: Giving Myself Permission
Carrie told me in a comment on my Vision Board post that over the course of the year, my board would reveal more of itself, and possibly change meaning as I moved though. I thought I’d keep track of those changes and go ahead and share them, since I had already shared my board. One of the […]
Did that winter seem to never end or what? I still half expect there to be one more snow thing that happens or something, and I find myself staring out the window from the corner of my eye waiting for it to fall. How messed up is that? Anyhoo, it’s been a busy few weeks! […]

Like any number of people, in past years I have wanted to come up with something *awesome* for the new year, something to work towards, something that at the end of […]
Would anyone be interested in a sew-along?
I have this pattern I’ve been working on that I think looks really cool, with aspects of both improv-looking areas and nice, larger open areas for fun quilting. I’m kind of dying to make it, and think it would be fun for people if they were looking to use up things in their scrap box […]
Tree of Life–Wordless Wednesday
Tree of Life–Work in Progress
A while back, I had written about the quilt commission I had for a tree of life, where I planned to use Rose Hughes’s Fast Piece Applique technique. In that time, though, I realized that I had envisioned it as a *really* raw edge applique, to be completed on my longarm rather than on my […]
So I did what any normal person would do.
I ordered all the fat quarters from Intrepid Thread so I could make an informed choice. I can make a quilt or pillows to tie the room together. Right?
