I know, I know. It’s been a while since QuiltCon, and where have I been? Truth be told, I haven’t felt much like writing recently. This last week, though, I worked on a top that was way out of my comfort zone, and one which really made me crazily happy. And while it wasn’t “modern”, […]
Wordless… Wait, what day is it?
It’s been a little busy the last few weeks, with final book edits, shipping and receiving quilts and tops, and quite a few deadlines for various places. I’ve been remiss in posting and sharing eye candy on my blog (although if you’re looking for that, check out my instagram feed over on the right!) I […]

Modern Quilts, Traditional Shows: My Interview with Scott Murkin part 1
Over the last few years, modern quilts have been seen in categories at MQX, AQS, Road to California, and have a dedicated show, QuiltCon.

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 […]
recent finishes for Cristy
This little cutie is a mini that Cristy Fincher of Purple Daisies made. The wreaths have this really great movement to them, and to quilt them, I knew I wanted to keep with that feeling of turning and twisting. I broke down the wreaths into triangles, and put in a simple echoed triangle in those […]
Are you headed to QuiltCon 2015?
I’ve got my room, I’m looking for flights, and I’m happy to announce that two of my quilts will be at QuiltCon! This will be a sneak peek from my forthcoming book, too! And the title is… well, let’s just say I am really satisfied. I can’t show you the quilts, but I think I *can* […]
