This quilt was technically finished in August, but I’m just now getting a chance to post it to the blog. During the summer, Shannon Page did a webinar on taking traditional blocks and modifying them to have a more modern aesthetic. This was particularly well-timed as the Ontario Museum of […]

Finish: Ursa Minor

I’m really excited to share my latest finish with y’all! This is the most technically challenging quilt I’ve ever made, and (probably related) has taken the most time to complete. For the last couple of years, my aesthetic has been pretty minimal and graphic, which was heavily influenced by my QDAD […]

Finish: 49

Someone posted in a Facebook group I belong to that they were having a lot of trouble finishing things and asked if anyone else dealt with that. I wrote up a response and someone suggested I make it a blog post, which seemed like a good idea, so here it is, slightly edited […]

Finishing Stuff is Hard

So first of all, I survived my move to Florida! We’re doing really well here so far, although I’m still trying to get used to my new job. I’m hoping things settle into a rhythm soon, as right now it feels pretty overwhelming and time-consuming. Also, I’m behind on everything, […]

A while ago I posted that I had a quilt that I assumed was a shoo-in for QuiltCon that didn’t get accepted. This is that quilt. I finished this over a year ago, but it was slated to be the cover model for the book-that-didn’t-happen, so it didn’t get shared back then. Because […]

Finish: Crayon Box

Back in the golden era when I had free time, I was sometimes fortunate enough to volunteer for Heather Ross weekend workshops. During one of these workshops, I met Annabel Wrigley (who is probably best known for her “We Love to Sew” books for children sewists.) She is one of those lovely people […]

Finish: Picnic Plaid (+ pattern)

I’m so behind on posting what’s going on here, I’ve been having trouble knowing where to start. So, I thought I’d just start with the biggest thing and see what I have time for after that. As some of you are aware, I moved to Washington, DC (ok, technically Gaithersburg, […]

Life Update

The latest issue of Make Modern recently came out and included an article on the mini-mini quilt movement that was happening late last year and included some of my own work which was really flattering! They also put out a mini-mini challenge which has kick started the movement again, and it’s […]

I’ve been bitten by the improv bug lately, and I’m happy I get to share a small improv finish with you all! The Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild did a “Crayon Challenge” swap over the last couple of months. Everyone who wanted to participate picked three crayons at random, and then […]

Finish: Crayola Sunset

I’m finally getting a chance to do a [not-so] quick sum up of my thoughts on QuiltCon this year. This year was pretty different for me in two ways: I didn’t sign up for any classes, and I also had the pleasure of being faculty. Not signing up for anything was a […]
