Also, many thanks to our sponsors. The randomly selected winners from the final linkup are: Rochelle won a free e-book from C&T thanks to Flying Parrot Quilts and C&T...

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...

Dancing Diamonds {Pattern Release}

I originally shared about Dancing Diamonds at the end of March in 2016, and the mini size tutorial was available on the Sew Mama Sew website. Sew Mama Sew no longer exists, so the tutorial is no longer available online. After thinking it over, I decided to expand the pattern and release it as a full quilt pattern, which...

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 {Pattern Release}

I shared Scoop back in mid-November, and today I'm excited to announce the release of the Scoop digital quilt pattern! And here's the inside scoop on Scoop: I actually made it to reacquaint myself with curved piecing before making the Rock Candy quilt for the MQG's Modern Monthly. The pattern is written to help you explore your stash and scraps...

Mirage {New Printed Pattern}

I have had a handful of my patterns printed into booklets over the years, but knowing that I was going to travel last year I put a big hold on printing new patterns or re-stocking printed patterns that sold out. Today I have great news: I now have 14 printed pattern booklets as all are back in stock and...

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...

Expanded Quilt Theory Digital Pattern Releases

When the Quilt Theory collaboration ended, the rights to the patterns reverted back to the original designers. This summer, I decided to revisit the 3 patterns I released with the group and expand them (they were originally all only for lap size quilts). Today, I am releasing the 3 expanded patterns. Tiled Parquet creates a strong geometric pattern with varying...

Precession Pattern Release

When designers contract with magazines, part of the contractual agreement has to do with the rights to the pattern. I prefer to allow the magazine to have exclusive rights to the pattern for a period of time and to have them revert back to me so that I can release the pattern on my own as well. Today, I'm...
