Oh Scrap!

Hello! I can't even tell you how excited I am to be able to talk a little bit about a new quilt book that is one of those "must haves!"  I was able to get a look at this book back in January, and I couldn't stop reading it!  You'll not only love it for the beautiful photos, but you'll also want to read it cover-to-cover for the great information included (and then make every quilt in the book)!

Oh, Scrap is a hot-off-the-press book written by Lissa Alexander.  Lissa is one

More Spring Quilts: Sew Scrappy

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I'm really excited to share some fun scrappy quilts with you that my daughter Chelsi pieced a little while ago.  She sent them all off to be quilted and just recently got them back (I was lucky enough to be at her house when the UPS driver arrived with them--it was so much fun opening that box)!  They were sure beautiful before quilting, but now they are even more beautiful!

First up is her delightful scrappy watermelon quilt.  She used a fun variety of

Scrappy Quilt & New Notions

Hello and happy Monday! My weekend was kind of a roller coaster.  I had two quilts with upcoming deadlines that had to be finished...and I stayed up way too late several nights in a row getting them done.  But now that they're finished and off to the quilter I'm breathing a little easier.  And...I get to share new patterns and fabric with you soon!

Next up on my list is to make a couple of baby quilts for a new little guy that

9-Patch Quilt #TBT

Hello and happy Thursday! I've been making a lot of 9-patches using our new fabric lately.  More than one of the new quilt patterns uses some variation of the 9-patch, and I've also been working on a jelly roll quilt for a book that uses a 9-patch variation.  It's a great block to use because combining strip piecing with the block construction can save a lot of time.  And along with that, I really do love the nine-patch's versatile and can be combined with many different designs and in many different ways.

These 9-patches were pieced with scraps from our Desert Bloom collection just

Spring Quilts

Hello and happy Wednesday! I've finally started transitioning my home to have more of a spring feel (True story: until last Saturday I still had Christmas quilts on my entryway ladder and on two walls)! I love getting out the spring quilts and using them to decorate...the four on my entryway ladder are a few of my favorites.

The quilt on the top rung is pieced from Meadowsweet fabrics by Sandi

A Swell Christmas Quilt

Hello and happy Monday! Over the weekend I was able to finally get my Swell Christmas quilt finished up!  I started binding it just as I was beginning all of the new collection quilt sewing, and the final two sides of binding have been waiting to be finished for a few weeks now!

This is such a fun quilt...and I don't feel bad that I didn't get it finished in time

IG Quilt Fest

Hello and happy Friday! Today I thought I'd share a little bit about a fun photo-of-the-day event taking place on Instagram right now. Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side has done a fabulous job organizing the event and coming up with fun and creative topics.  Each day there is a different prompt, and quilters from all over the world share photos based on the subject of the day.  It's been a lot of fun to see all of the different photos and to be inspired by all of the creativity!

It's been so much fun that I decided to document my weekly photos here on

Village Quilt Along Update

Hello and happy Thursday! Earlier this year I decided to join in on the quilt-a-long for the Village pattern of adorable houses by Carrie Nelson. I already had the pattern and decided that it would be a lot of fun to combine all of our fabric collections for the house blocks for a fun quilt.  I immediately made 16 blocks and was hooked (eight of them were made with fabrics I can't share just yet, though)! I've been busy with other things but decided I needed to make some more houses ASAP!  They really are so much fun!

The houses above were made one at a time, but now I'm using a more
