Boho Ottoman

Well, this long-running project is finally complete! I started this quilted ottoman after seeing a similar patchwork one without quilting in a boutique here in Dallas (it was $300). I balked at the price but considering how long it took me to quilt it and assemble this, that price tag is looking a little more […]


Earlier this year I started Moda’s “Spell It With Fabric” quilt. You can download the free patterns for each letter {here}. Instead of beginning at the beginning with ABC, I started at the end with XYZ. I figured this was a good way to force myself to actually finish it, It worked! Well, almost. I […]

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

And he’s going to be here very soon. It seems like Thanksgiving stole a little bit of Christmas thunder waiting until three days before December to make an appearance. I still have pumpkins on my front porch (but there’s a wreath on the door!) I’m actually hoping the squirrels will polish off the pumpkins as […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fabric Stack: Lucky Strike

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 […]

A Tied Quilt

This quilt is the perfect example of how to get WIPs finished. It languished in a box for nearly a year until I took it on retreat in the spring. My goal was to create a couple of intricate borders to make it larger but I decided it wasn’t worth so much extra effort for […]

Ambassador of Fabric

I’ve given myself the unofficial title of Ambassador of Fabric. I love fabric with  my whole heart. And I feel compelled to share this love with others. My friends have other, less flattering terms for it. Fabric pusher is probably the nicest. 😉 Confession: Years before I worked for Moda. I decoded their file-naming system […]
