What I’m Sewing

It feels like I never get to sew these days but when I look back at my Instagram photos, I’ve gotten quite a few things done. This first quilt that’s ready for binding has been sitting at the longarmer (Urban Spools) for a YEAR. Good thing she’s a friend! Her quilting is amazing and perfectly […]

Pattern 1303 – Lucky Strike

Today is reveal day for my third quilt pattern. It’s another mod inspired look called Lucky Strike. The blocks are a stylized version of bowling pins. I quilted this one using my new favorite stem quilting design. It takes a bit more effort because you have to mark the quilt top if your piecing isn’t […]

Pattern 1302 – Midcentury

Pattern reveal number two today! Midcentury is a graphic quilt that is perfect for highlighting your favorite prints and colors. It can be made with yardage or jelly rolls and the pattern gives details for using both. This one was pieced by my friend Sarah Huechteman who does amazing and perfect work! It was quilted  […]

Pattern 1301 – Turkish Delight

Buy Now You saw a sneak peek of my new patterns earlier this week and now I’m ready to share all the details! First up is Turkish Delight.  This quilt was inspired by Turkish kilim rugs. The color palette came from a vintage (maybe?) paper plate that someone left at the retreat house where I […]

You may have noticed a theme of solids lately. I have several all solids quilts in the works at the moment and this stack is for a quilt called Lucky Strike. It’s inspired by a print I saw in a shop. I loved the combination of fun colors with a lot of layered neutrals. From […]

Bright and Bold

Today I am celebrating getting my sewing machine back from servicing (in only 2 hours!) with a new stack of beautiful solids. A freshly oiled and cleaned machine is the perfect reason to start a new project! I’m going for an all-solids quilt with a bold color palette: These are all Bella Solids from Moda […]

Stars and 4-Patches

UPDATE: I’ve had a ton of emails and comments about this pattern. It is a Moda Fabrics pattern that is available to all Moda customers (meaning your favorite local quilt shop). They may not be stocking printed versions of the pattern but they can access the digital file from Moda’s customer workstation. So go and […]

Retro Whimsy Bella Solids

Moda Fabrics has a series of free patterns designed for solids called the 12-Pack. I’m working on a pattern from the new set using the lovely stack of Bella Solids above. I like to name my fabric stacks because I’m a nerd like that so this one is called Retro Whimsy. The colors are sort of […]

WIP Wednesday: Jelly Roll Race

So for yesterday’s WIP Wednesday project, I tackled a quilt I’d named “Urban Cowgirl Around the World” and it turned into a completely different project. I had a trip around the world quilt in mind, combining an Urban Cowgirl jelly roll with a Bella Solids {warm} jelly roll. The color palettes aren’t an exact match, […]
