Lucent Baby Quilt {Finish}

I just love how well the Lucent baby quilt came together! The Y-Seams pieced together nicely (there are 8 in the pattern to keep the printed fabric as single cuts), the colors blend together nicely, and the quilting was just an extra fun bonus! Just like in my original Lucent quilt, I quilted around each pieced fabric and used a...

In late April, I learned that one of my friends was pregnant. About a microsecond after she told me, my brain was already thinking about the baby quilt I would be making. I reached out to several of her other friends, and in the end 7 of us collaborated to make this special quilt. Today, I am really excited...

High Road Low Road {Finished Quilt}

I am really pleased with how my quilt, High Road Low Road, finished. It started as a re-examination of the block and piecing technique that I used for Beacon, and morphed into something entirely new. And then I let myself play and have a lot of fun with the quilting. This is a very double sided quilt, in my opinion,...

HST Scrap Quilt {Finished Quilt}

I really love how the HST Scrap quilt came together! I went with much less dense quilting than I have been using lately and focused on using dot to dot techniques along with other straight line quilting patterns to hopefully enhance the geometric design of the quilt while leaving it very soft and fluffy. For comparison, the photo above is...
