Night Garden, Space Arcade, & Congruence {Pattern Release}

After months designing, pattern writing, and pattern testing Night Garden and bonus quilts Space Arcade and Congruence, I am very happy to be able to say that the Night Garden digital pattern is now available for you to make your own version of these three quilts. And if you would instead prefer to only make one of the bonus...

Congruence {Finished Quilt}

I had planned to have Congruence finished about a month ago, but life had other plans. I'm grateful that it's complete, and I'm really pleased that the extra time I needed to take forced me to think a little bit more about the quilting plan. I'm absolutely thrilled with this finish! After quilting and trimming the quilt square, Congruence measures...

Congruence {Basting}

Thank you so much for your well wishes; what a difference a week makes. I'm feeling better and have short periods of good energy. Hooray! Since all of my quilting plan options for Congruence (including Plan C) have the same straight line quilting, I went ahead and got the quilting lines marked out on the quilt top using my Hera...

About all the energy I had in this past week was to come up with what is likely the final quilting plan for Congruence, Plan C. Based on feedback from a week ago, I think this splits the difference and seems achievable. Hopefully I'll...

Congruence {Piecing Progress}

This weekend I was able to finish piecing the rest of the drunkard's path blocks for Congruence, and then get them all pressed and trimmed. While it can be rather messy to set all of the trimmings aside to create a friendly fabric monster, it is so silly and fun that I can't help myself. 64 drunkard's path blocks now...

Congruence {Slow Piecing Progress}

Last week, I had big intentions to make a lot of piecing progress on Congruence, but the universe had other plans. On Tuesday evening, I pinned just over half of the curves and I even sewed 2 units together. But instead of chain piecing, my husband and I took an hour long phone call. Then Wednesday was a long...

Congruence {Fabric Prep}

With the first Night Garden bonus quilt finished (Space Arcade), what else was a girl to do but start on the second bonus quilt, Congruence? While Space Arcade can be made from the scraps of either Night Garden quilt size, Congruence can only be made from scraps created to make the queen size quilt. Congruence is a two-color quilt, and...
