In Our Own Words Quilt Block

Last week, in coordination and celebration of International Women's Day, Kim from Leland Ave Studios put out a call for quilt blocks for what she is calling the "In Our Own Words Quilt". In Kim's words: In celebration of how *AMAZING* we are as women, I am asking for YOUR HELP in creating a quilt that acknowledges and honors ourselves...

Matching Aurifil Thread

Last week as I was working on my first bed quilt for 2018, I realized I needed to place an Aurifil thread order to have matching thread for my projects for the year! I had planned ahead and purchased a lot yardage of the Kona Cotton colors my husband and I selected (Ocean, Astral, Lake, and Sky), but I had...

February Patreon Mini Mini Quilt

On February 5th, I had one of my Patreon’s unlock the mini mini quilt reward. The patron told me to follow my current muse and inspiration but noted that their favorite quilt I have made is Beacon. They like the colors, shapes, vibe, etc. Well, I really love Beacon, too, so I dove in and created a Beacon mini mini quilt. I...

Client Quilting {Spiced Chai Quilt}

I have a local friend who is quilting more frequently. I had talked with her about free motion quilting on her Bernina, but after frustration with her efforts, we have struck on the happy deal that I will quilt some of her finishes for her. Most recently, I had the fun of quilting her version of the Spiced Chai...

Not What I Had Planned {Mini Mini Patreon Reward}

As you are familiar with right now, I had another patron unlock a mini mini quilt reward for supporting me via Patreon this month. When I inquired about preferences, I was given the guideline to create something representative of my style. I had many thoughts about what my style is. Clearly, I use solids and use transparency quite often in...

Magnolia Mystery Quilt {Pieced Quilt Top}

I had a plan for quilting in December that got a bit interrupted, in the best possible way: my husband took some extra time away from work than I had been anticipating. I still had some sewing and quilting time, but I definitely made spending time with him while he was at home a priority. So, while I had...

Deep Dive Mini Quilt

As I mentioned in the December Patreon Mini Mini Quilts post, three of my Patreon’s unlocked rewards in December. The third patron unlocked a mini quilt reward, and when I asked if there were any preferences or things to avoid, the patron responded that they really like my tree of life (the giving tree) mini quilt and my mini mini "ohm" quilt.

Savannah Star – Quilt for The Quilter’s Planner

I was preparing a blog post to link up with the Best of 2017 Linky Party hosted by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs, and I realized that I have a quilt finish from 2017 that I haven't shared about! That is very unusual for me. I figured I would share about the quilt before I posted my Best of 2017...

Perkiomen Valley Blocks {Thomas Fire Relief Quilts}

Christmas and the few days after are always a big family time for me, because today (12/26) is my husband's birthday(!!), and tomorrow (12/27) is our anniversary. We've been having a cozy time at home, so I've been able to get in just a little bit of sewing most days, though. If I'm going to carve out time to...

Finished Quilt {Wayward Transparency Quilt Along}

I am thrilled to share my third Wayward Transparency quilt finish with you today! I made this version during the quilt along. Full disclosure: no, it was not sewn early! I completed my steps after each new post was shared publicly. I love this rich, deep blue background color. It was a treat to go from dark to light on...

For December, I have three of my Patreon’s unlock rewards. Two of the three are receiving a mini mini quilt reward. I like to check in with the individual to see if they have any specific requests or preferences, and I do my best to incorporate those into what I create. Sarah from Smiles Too Loudly simply requested that I make something...

I wanted to take some time to add a bit more quilting detail to my Spring Growth quilt prior to submitting it for consideration for QuiltCon, and I'm happy to say I got it done and submitted! I had originally left the light gray areas in the piecing unquilted, and after the fact I was sad that I did not...

As I mentioned yesterday, I really feel like Collection 3 for Quilt Theory is something special. As noted in one of Cheryl Brickey's Quilt Theory Designer Corner Posts, a big part of the pattern development process of Quilt Theory is in physically testing the patterns for each other. For Collection 3, I had the pleasure of pattern testing Skydust for Stephanie...
