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.

August 350 Blocks Report

Posted on September 1, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

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 […]

Another Retreat

It may seem like I’m always at one quilting retreat or another, and while it IS true that I go to several every year, it’s the only way I can make really good focused progress on projects of my own, because altho I work from my home studio, and quilt all day long every day, […]

If you’ve visited me in the past week, but you’ve been here before, you may have noticed that my website got a bit of a new look! I was tired of the old colors and the tiny print, so I had the folks at Maye Create Design fix me all up with new colors and […]
