New! Fly Over Quilt Featured in Quilt Now

Issue 20 of Quilt Now Magazine has arrived, and I am so happy to finally share a quilt that I designed and is featured inside. Fly Over is a scrappy star quilt with a twist! Perfect for scraps and stash. I made Fly Over during a rather long period between fall 2014 and spring 2015...it was one of those that I worked on a bit here and there between other projects, and loved every minute of choosing fabrics and sewing it.

Show and Tell: Quilts in Progress

It has been quite a whirlwind for me the last few weeks since classes started for the semester! I haven't had much time for anything other than homework, but happily my mom came to visit me and help out for a few weeks and we have squeezed a bit of time in for sewing at last. She brought the blocks for this amazing quilt with her and sewed up the top...it is made with my quilt pattern, Archer, and I love it! It looks so different from the pattern sample...great how it shows the versatility of the pattern to use...
