I’m Going, Are You?

I can’t believe we are already just under 5 months until Small Town Quilt Show in a Big Town Way gets underway.  Registration is open and spaces are filling up fast.  I can’t wait to see everyone there.  There are going to be some incredible teachers sharing the secrets, tips, talent and skills with everyone.  And, in case you missed it before, I’m one of them.  It will be so great to spend the weekend […]

I’m Teaching!

Yep, you heard it right.  I’m teaching in June 2014 at the Small Town Quilt Show – In a Big Town Way.  I’m thrilled.  I was so flattered, shocked, excited, and nervous when I received an invitation to teach from Natalia.  Since then, I’ve been able to fine tune the class outlines for the classes that I will be teaching.  The two quilt patterns that I am teaching are… drum roll… Modern Asterisk & […]

What’s in a name?

I have to admit, I’m really not the best at naming quilt patterns or products in general.  You may have noticed my most creative name is for my 3rd quilt pattern.  You see, it has a bunch of triangles surrounding 6 hexagons.  I love the pattern and had a lot of fun making it.  But when it came to naming it, I couldn’t even kind of come up with a good name.  Plus, I […]

Have you ever given a speech or been filmed?  If so, do any of you have a “go to” word you use if you are nervous?  A lot of people say “um” a lot, or “like”.  Well…  I now know what my go-to word is… drum roll… “Exactly”.

Last month, I had the incredible opportunity to work with Cindy from Riley Blake Designs to put together my very first video tutorial.  We made a sweet and simple […]

Work in Progress – Serenity Part II

Do you ever have those days when you want to get absolutely nothing accomplished???  Oh, that has been me lately.  I just haven’t really wanted to do anything productive.  Just veg and watch my favorite shows.  But then, I would have to compete with “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.”  So I finally gave myself a talkin’ to and decided to get my little behind in gear and get to some sewing.  It has definitely […]

Modern Asterisk – Chevron Style

It is finally time to catch up a bit on my blogging.  Now that the holidays are out of the way and a new year has started, I thought it was fine time to share my latest favorite quilt.  I made this for Riley Blake to use at fall quilt market in Houston this last fall.  Can I say that I love how it turned out?  It was a labor of love but oh […]

Work In Progress – Serenity Part 1

Oi!  I think I’m finally going to get a post up here in time to do the WIP (Work in Progress) link up on Freshly Pieced.  I’m excited that this is my first one.

Today is day 2 of Mission Potty Train for my 3 year old boy.  We tried when he was 2 but he wanted absolutely NOTHING to do with it.  We even splurged and bought him Thomas the Tank underwear and NOTHING.  So, […]

Thanksgiving Recovery

I love Thanksgiving!  Oh, the turkey, rolls, stuffing, cranberries, stomach flu—oh wait.  Yep, the stomach flu!  I’m not really thrilled about it myself.  It wouldn’t be so bad, but it came back for a round 2 today.  So, I’m chilling in my bed with my laptop.  The good news though, I have a great opportunity to update my blog.  Something I am longing to do more often.
Honestly though, I love Thanksgiving!  In spite of […]

Frosty is Here

This is one of my favorite times of the year.  That first snow, seeing the lights put up on houses surrounding mine (I’ve never been on the ball enough to do it myself), the smell of pine as you walk into the grocery store past the selection of fresh Christmas trees, holiday songs sneaking into playlists of radio stations, and plans of family get togethers coming into shape.  I think this year is going […]

My Chevron Crush

I’m back to the blogging world and I am so excited!  During the last 8 months A LOT has happened.  To sum it up quickly, I got the first cuts from my fabric line, I sewed 10 quilts, I had a baby, 2 quilts were picked up by magazines, and I wrote patterns for the remaining 8 quilts.  Yep, they are done, DONE, and D.O.N.E!!!  Oh I forgot to mention, I actually wrote 2 […]
