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, […]

Bee Sewcial – September – Transitions

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, […]

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 […]

Not Made by Me – QuiltCon

In case you haven’t been following it, Michelle @ factotum-of-arts is doing a Color Series this year, where every month is focused on a single family of colors and she and guest bloggers talk about using that color. This month, the color is GREEN, and I am lucky enough to […]

A thing that I’ve been working on during any free time (and then increasingly during not-free time) since October has finally come to fruition and I hope to be able to share details as soon as paperwork is signed. This is not exactly quilting-related, but more life-related, but I am […]
