Phew, it’s been a while! I’ve been blogging twice a week over at Modern Quilts Unlimited, so while I have been a busy blogger, it’s not been necessarily here. Today, though, I have been asked to be part of the Scrap Quilt Designer Showcase that is being hosted by Persimmon Dreams! Scrap quilts are, for […]
Reflections on 2015 and my word of the year
It’s a good thing I write stuff down here in this space, because, as humans, sometimes we remember things incorrectly and we need reminders of what actually happened. It’s kind of embarrassing, but when I went back to look and see where my post was about my 2015 Word of the Year and Vision Board, […]
And now, introducing my new logo and site!
I talk about my choices for my quilting related logo and website design,describing what my logo means to me and the people who helped me get there.
A story about quilting wobbles, or, why I learned to pay attention to piecing rules
One of my favorite things about quilting for others, and that I’m most proud of, is helping people finish their quilts in the way they want, so that they look their best. My goal with my quilting is to take the top my customer has worked so hard on and add my quilting as […]
Educating Your Quilty Self
I am back from a wild and crazy few months! Quilt Market marked the end of last-minute stress-inducing projects and now that I am back home I realized that I missed writing my blog posts. I don’t always have great pictures but I do think I have moderately interesting thoughts to share, and I really miss […]
Well, I may not be at Quilt Market, but I am happy to have something hanging there! I recently finished a quilt pattern for RJR Fabrics called “Fair Day”, made with the line “Pie Making Day” by Brenda Ratliffe of Pink Castle Fabrics. The sashing is all 1 1/2″ finished HSTs, and the pattern will […]
Quick Change Blog Hop and Giveaway!
Lately I’ve been falling for quilts of different sizes. I love making bed quilts for using and giving away, but they can really take up resources and time that, right now, I seem to have less and less of. That’s why, when Martingale asked me to submit a design for their compilation of bedrunners, I […]
My free quilt pattern is up!
Hey, y’all! Over on the BERNINA We All Sew blog I’ve written up a free pattern for my quilt “Star Crossed”! It uses 2 1/2″ strips, and while it has a complex pattern, it’s only one block to put together. I also wrote a bit about choosing color schemes, AND there’s a giveaway for my […]
And now for something completely different
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”, […]
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. With its second show kicking off in a week, and an announcement that it will become a yearly event at different locations, it seemed to me as though modern quilts were finding their place. […]
