Sky Full of Stars {Finished Quilt}

Well, in the end I stuck with the 1" quilting density for Sky Full of Stars. The quilting seems to be just what the quilt needed, and I probably didn't have enough of the dark navy thread to double the density. The quilt finished at 48" square after quilting and binding. I love how the quilt shows off both the...

Mum’s Garden {Finished Quilt}

Mum's Garden took me a month from start to finish, although I was itching to use the color palette starting back in April when I brought home all those Kona Cotton solids from my closing local quilt shop. It is definitely one of my favorite quilts I've made so far. This quilt has been a joy to work on;...

Downstream {Pattern Release}

A little over 3 years ago, I made a quilt I named "Downstream" for the Quilt Design a Day QuiltCon exhibit. I used paper piecing to make the quilt, so when I considered writing a pattern for it, I struggled with how to offer it in sizes larger than the wall hanging size I created due to the ridiculous...

Scoop {November MDL Challenge}

I wasn't surprised to realize that I did not have enough fabric to make my initial November MDL Design Idea that I shared early last week. I didn't need to change much, and I have to admit that I really liked how the design evolved with just those few changes. After getting the design modified for the fabric I had...

It is my great pleasure to share with you the completed Stone Sheep Mini quilt today!

Design Group Challenge: Crown Mini Quilt

One of the reasons I was motivated to finish the Butterfly Inspiration Mini Quilt a few weeks ago was that it was time for me to start working on the next design group challenge. In general, I like to finish one project before moving on to another (although quilt alongs and other long term projects definitely interrupt that general...

For a little over a year, I kept myself from working on transparency designs. I thought a lot about whether or not I would want to write a book and so instead of creating all the ideas and designs in my head, I filed them away and decided to think for a while. After a lot of thought, I...

Sunburst was my first quilt to be in a magazine, and I learned so many good lessons just from submitting, making, and then having this quilt published. Because it was published in the 2016 QuiltCon magazine, which is only printed yearly, I needed to wait a full year from the date of magazine publication to have the rights revert...
