Vines and Valleys

A while back, I showed you the back of a quilt I had been working on, and said I’d show you the front when I could (in this post here). Well, the cat’s been out of the bag for a couple months, but I never took the time to write anything up till now! This […]

QuiltCon 2018

The Modern Quilt Guild’s annual quilt show, QuiltCon, is going on right now in Pasadena, CA. Since I was just in California over Thanksgiving, I opted not to go back again this soon, and as it turns out, that’s a good thing, since I have these two to bottle feed and entertain every few hours. […]

Imogene’s Vintage Quilt

Last summer, I worked on restoring a vintage quilt top for my friend, Imogene. This quilt was made by Imogene’s great-aunt, Emma Salyer (Mrs. James Salyer), when she was young, and Aunt Emma gave it to Imogene as an unquilted top. Imogene says she’s reasonably sure the quilt is at least 100 years old! Over […]

How Did You Quilt That?

How Did You Quilt That?

I’ve been getting asked this question ever since the modern color version of the Sew Sweet Sampler made its debut . . . So today, I’m here to explain my process of quilting it. It’s a medallion quilt . . . The modern setting, altho NOT asymmetrical, leaves lots of negative space for quilting. I […]

Modern Quilt Magic

It’s finally here!! Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s new book is out! It’s called Modern Quilt Magic, and these quilts really look like they take magic to make, but she breaks it down and makes them really simple. Stunning results with simple techniques — what could be better? I think I’ve been more anxious for this one […]

That 30-foot Quilt!

It’s called “A Garden for All Seasons”, and it’s the creation of my bestie, Victoria Findlay Wolfe. It’s a quilt she made that is NINE feet tall by THIRTY feet wide! It’s so big I couldn’t get it all in one picture: It hung at the AQS Show in Paducah back in April, and standing […]

Rose Marie’s “Abloom” Quilt

I recently quilted a quilt for my friend, Rose Marie. She made this “Abloom” quilt from a pattern in Amy Ellis’s book “Modern Heritage Quilts“. Since the quilt is chock full of negative space, Rose Marie asked me if I would quilt it and fill up all that negative space with lots of modern quilting. […]

Gina’s Nine-Patch Challenge

Last fall, I quilted a quilt for a friend and customer, Gina. (I think it’s great that so many of my customers are also my friends!) Gina received a bunch of 9-patch blocks from a group challenge, and this is what she did with hers! She sure made them go far — this quilt is […]
