Star Wars Quilt | May the Fourth Modern Designs!

May the Fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars day! I thought it would be fun to share how I have made a modern Star Wars quilt. I love a challenge, and for me, using character prints in a way that felt fresh and modern was definitely that challenge. I love how both these quilts turned out! Just a quick note, I made both these quilts a while back and I’m just now getting aroundContinue reading

Spyglass Patchwork Chore Coat

I made Riley’s quilt coat back in the fall, and I did it with the intention of making myself a matching one. But I didn’t have enough background fabric, and it took a while for me to sit down and do some calculations and order it! During that time, I started developing the Patchwork Chore Coat, so I switched gears and decided to use my coat pattern for this quilt coat instead of my originalContinue reading

Modern Crossing Baby Quilt | Flutter

I made two baby quilts for PBS Fabrics’s 2020 Quiltcon booth, and in the rush to get these made I never created blog posts about them! This Modern Crossing baby quilt was made with the Flutter collection by Ampersand Studios for PBS Fabrics. Want to see the second quilt I made for the PBS Fabrics booth? Check out the Etoile Baby Quilt here! I love the Modern Crossing quilt pattern because it has so manyContinue reading

This baby quilt was made with the Step Right Up collection by SuzyContinue reading

Etoile Quilt | Made with Thrifted Materials

I made a different type of quilt recently when I made a sustainable quilt with all thrifted and upcycled materials! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while and with Earth Day around the corner I had the motivation to get this done! Why use upcycled materials? I wanted to challenge myself to create a quilt out of all upcycled materials for a couple of reasons. The first reason, simply, I like aContinue reading

Unruly Nature Nordic Star Quilt

This Unruly Nature Nordic Star quilt came out of my partnership with Ruby Star Society. They featured Nordic Star in this new Unruly Nature fabric collection in their lookbook, and I was able to actually sew one up! Unruly Nature was designed by RSS Guest Designer Jen Hewett. The collection is soft, beautiful, and complex. For my Nordic Star quilt, I selected fabrics from the yellow, peach, and pink colorways. It reminds me of pinkContinue reading

Creating Coordinating Quilts

I’m a big fan of coordinating, or companion quilts. Quilts that work well together in a room but aren’t exactly the same. Quilts that use the same fabric collection but different patterns or styles. In my mind, I always call these sister quilts. I grew up with one older sister, and she’s an amazing person. Kind, generous, thoughtful, always willing to help. She’s the quintessential older sister and I’m so lucky to have her. WeContinue reading

Graffiti Hearts | Coral Version

For my second Graffiti Hearts quilt, I decided to go subtle and soft with a range of coral prints. I wanted to see how this pattern handled prints and a limited color palette. I’m happy to say I love BOTH in this coral graffiti hearts quilt! I pulled out various coral prints from my stash, enjoying remembering which quilts I used them in or where I purchased them. There’s a lot of happy memories wrappedContinue reading

Creating a Monochrome Graffiti Hearts Quilt

When I first designed Graffiti Hearts, I went all BRIGHT and BOLD with my color choices. I wanted the hearts to be a showstopper of a block, and I love the resulting quilt. I like to showcase the range of a pattern, so in making more Graffiti Hearts quilts with different color variations, I decided to make a monochrome Graffiti Hearts quilt. Shop Graffiti Hearts: Making a Monochrome Graffiti Hearts Quilt: Graffiti Hearts uses 11Continue reading

Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Nordic Star Quilt

My patterns are in the works for a very long time before they make it into your hands. Back in February 2021, when I already had this pattern in the works and I was working on writing the instructions, I fell in love with the Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Classics collection. I’m already a big fan of Rifle Paper Co. fabrics, and this one was no exception. I love how classic and victorian it feels,Continue reading

Gift Guide 2021

Here’s some of my favorite things, maybe you’ll find something on here for someone on your list! This Gift Guide 2021 isn’t comprehensive. Instead, it is a list of things I’ve been loving and enjoying this year, in the hopes it inspires you as well. TheseContinue reading

Aurifil November Project: Holiday Stocking

For my November Aurifil Artisan project, I decided to lean into the Christmas spirit with a holiday stocking! I was provided with the fabrics and corresponding thread from Free Spirit Fabrics and Aurifil and was told to do whatever I wished with it! I thought long and hard about how to turn these fabrics into something that was reflective of my style, and this holiday stocking really hit the mark. For the front of myContinue reading
