Spotted. Out and About.

I’ve gone to several quilt shows this year, and readers and customers have also been kind enough to send photos, and some of my fellow guild members have shown me things they’ve done . . . And there have been a lot of quilts made from my patterns floating around in the wild! I’m so […]

Modern Heritage Quilts

It seems like eons ago that I pieced a couple of quilt tops for Amy Ellis for her new book. It’s excruciating to wait for all the work you’ve done to finally show up in print. But it’s all worth it in the end when you get to hold the fruits of your labor in […]

Sunbonnet Babies

I recently had the honor of quilting a very special quilt. I met Barb Owen last November, when she attended a retreat that I was also attending. She was there working feverishly on a Sunbonnet Babies quilt for her granddaughter, Kristi. Seems there’s a tradition in Barb’s family of all the girls receiving Sunbonnet Babies […]

Reneé is a fabric designer for Andover Fabrics, and has a LOT of patterns published as well. The Open House was wonderful. I could have hung out there all day! She had the entryway […]
