A More Magical Quilt Kit

It's so exciting to show you another new quilt! I think you'll fall in love with the Magic pattern all over again. (-: Ever feel like you want to make that beautiful new quilt pattern, but can't make up your mind on fabric palette? I do that all. the. time. It's kind of a paralyzing feeling and makes it hard to get started on new projects. Of course, as a lover of all things fabric, color and pattern, I'm happy to help you choose a gorgeous selection of fabric...and that's why my favorite thing about having my little quilt shop online...

Help Me Give to Help Australia

I've been thinking a lot about wanting to help the crisis in Australia with the fires. We've seen the images of destroyed habitat and injured and dead animals. At least one firefighter that I know of has been killed and many homes destroyed. It's not enough to say I feel sad about the state of our planet and the trajectory we are on. As with many of the current events in our news, despite feeling strongly about the issues and often terribly sad at what I'm hearing and reading, I feel so helpless to make a difference. So. I decided that...

It’s Magical! New Quilt Pattern

A big day, it's new pattern time! I feel like 2019 was one of my favorite years, quilt-wise, and now you can make one my personal favorites, too. <<get your Magic pattern here>> Magic is a quilt I made as part of the promotional tour for Sharon Holland's fabric collection, Everlasting. I totally fell in love with the true, rich red and navy blue that are featured strongly in the fabrics. To complement the many floral prints, I chose a bright green tonal print for something a bit unexpected and playful. Plus, doesn't this lush color palette just make you...

Go Untamed: A New Pattern

It's here, it's here! I always love sharing a new quilt design with all of you and seeing what you make with it. This month the big reveal is Untamed, the newest quilt pattern for the Classic Curves Ruler. I feel particularly fond of this quilt because I think there is a lot of potential for interesting variations by changing the color placement or fabric style. It's a really fun one to sew and see the pattern come together. This quilt was born when Sarah of No Hats Quilts contacted me to ask if I wanted to sew something with...

Planning Failure, Creative Success!

So, I write this post feeling a bit sheepish. I had such a good intentions of finishing up my black and white quilt to submit to Curated Quilts for their black and white challenge and hopefully to be featured in their black and white issue. Well, a few things converged to thwart my success. I LOVE that some of you did it, though! More on that later. Time constraints aside, I was well on my way to finishing my quilt when I hit a speed bump in the creative process. When I had all the blocks sewn up and I laid...
