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 […]

As you probably know by now, I rather enjoy working with solids. So I was more than happy to play along with the Mad for Solids March Madness bracket challenge! Sixteen of us were tasked with pulling a palette of 8 colors from the 84 colors available from the Painter’s Palette […]

Yay, happy day! I can share some secret sewing finally! I mentioned in my last post that I’d just gotten past the Season of the Deadlines. One of those deadlines was creating this quilt for the Modern Quilt Guild’s Quilt of the Month program (you need to be a member […]

Finish: City Lights

I’ve made it to the other side of the Season of Deadlines which has basically been a slog of every free moment being spoken for. This last weekend was the first time I didn’t have something that I was tragically behind on which was freeing but it’s been a while […]

This is a quilt I actually finished almost a year ago. However, it was slated for inclusion in the ill-fated book, so I never shared it on the blog. Since it seems like I may never actually have free time again in the quantities necessary to write a book, and […]

Finish: Mountain Sunrise



QuiltCon 20
Oh, hi! I don’t know about you all, but this year has been pretty non-stop from the get go! I’m getting a bit of breather this weekend before things really start heating up for QuiltCon. I managed to keep my schedule open so I’d be able to actually see the […]

Cool thing I saw on the internet alert! Have you ever been working on an equilateral triangle quilt and started dealing with seam allowances (which get weird on triangles) and ended up doing trigonometry to figure out what the finished size of your quilt would be? Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl […]
