A little of this and that…

When my oldest niece was about 3 years old, she and I were playing together and one of the phrases she used a lot at the time was, "This is this and that is that." As I was trying to come up with a name for this post, that memory popped to mind and I thought that a little...

Thursday Things

I have been paper piecing a lot recently. I designed a block that uses paper piecing (my first design using the technique) that you'll see in April, and the quilt I am working on this week uses paper piecing.

Sunday Stash: QuiltCon!

One of my goals for fabric shopping at QuiltCon was to find fabrics to use in a baby quilt for my cousin. My mother and I will be collaborating on the quilt together, and she has chosen to use my Tessellated Leaves pattern to piece together the quilt top! The nursery colors are peach, teal, and white, and this...

QuiltCon 2015 Registration

I knew that registering for the Modern Quilt Guild's upcoming mega awesome and exciting QuiltCon 2015 was going to be an interesting process with plenty of life lessons in patience. I was basing this assumption on how quickly the hotel rooms sold out for the event earlier this year (a whole year in advance!). With that in mind, I carefully...
