Sesen Pattern Release

Sometimes, a quilt tells you what it wants. Different colors, specific quilting motifs, a particular binding; whatever the case may be. Sesen has taught me that sometimes quilt patterns can tell you what they need to be. Today, after taking the time to really listen to what the quilt had to teach me, I am really pleased to be...

Tire Tracks {Pattern Release}

The life and evolution of a quilt pattern isn't always straight forward and linear. Heck, life isn't straight forward and linear. I designed Tire Tracks several years ago when I was collaborating with Quilt Theory, but it didn't translate to the pattern needs of that group. In late 2018, the pattern was selected for the 2020 Quilter's Planner. It...

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...

Two Hearts Beating as One {Finished Quilt & Pattern Release}

Do you like to make seasonal and holiday themed quilts? Honestly, I typically would answer that I do not. But I happened to be doodling about a month ago and struck on the fact that I could overlap hearts to make transparency hearts. Well, suddenly that looked like something I wanted to explore more and turn into a quilt! I...

Tiled Parquet creates a strong geometric pattern with varying...
