Choose Joy Quilt Book and Journal

Hello! Today I'm happy to be letting you know a little bit about my fellow Moda designer and friend Shannon Gillman Orr. Shannon has a new quilt book and journal just published titled Choose Joy. The phrase "choose joy" has been my mantra for 2017, so of course I was excited to take a peek at Shannon's book.

Easy Quilt-As-You-Go Place Mats

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start! This weekend I finally got around to making some place mats with some of our Creekside fabric. For quite a while now I've been wanting to make place mats using Soft & Stable instead of interfacing; since I love the way Soft & Stable works in bags, I thought it might be fun to see if it would make a difference for place mats, too.


I absolutely love the way they turned out, and I will be making all of my place

Thursday This & That

Hello! I'm still working on behind the scenes preparation for Quilt Market which is now just four weeks away! And I've also been helping my friend Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Company with some of her quilt market prep.  But I think I'm caught up enough to start something new!

New Patterns | Wallhanging + Mini

Hello! I'm so excited to be able to share two new patterns today. These have been on my "to do" list for a little while, and over the weekend I got them back from the quilters, bound, and the pattern writing finished up! One is a true mini quilt, and the other is a wall hanging, and they are both my favorites right now!


First up is my Starry Night mini. I love the full size version of this pattern but new it would also be really great in a mini size (see the original post on the full-size Starry Night quilt here).

Happy Easter

Hello...happy Sunday and happy Easter! I know I normally don't post on 
Sunday, but I felt like I should drop in and wish you and yours a wonderful day.

Easter is probably my most favorite holiday of the year because I feel like I'm able to keep it "non-commercialized."  Here is my favorite Easter message for you to enjoy...one of the reasons it's a favorite is because it truly shows how all of us all over the world are really so alike...enjoy! 





I'm so grateful for my knowledge of the #PrinceofPeace and for the comfort His life and teachings bring to me!  Have a wonderful day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Patchwork Quilt Along | April

Hello and happy Saturday! Today is Patchwork Quilt Along day which means that I have new blocks to share! I'm using a variety of different reds and blues by Minick & Simpson and am using a different light/low-volume background each month.  I'm really having fun with these blocks, and now that I have 24 of them finished it's starting to be pretty exciting!


This month's blocks (Star and Cross) took just a bit more time than the previous
