I finished up my latest sixteen patch quilt! I fall more in love with this classic style quilt with each one I make. This one features a range of bright and cheerful Liberty prints and Nani Iro Pocho in Soda. I hand quilted it as I always do, though it seems especially fitting paired with […]

  • Scrumptious!!! I’ve never used liberty fabrics, they are just waaay too far out of my budget for the time being, but I did back a quilt with AMH voile a few months back, and it is so lovely, especially with wool batting. I can just imagine how cuddly this is. beautifully done.ReplyCancel

I always love making for those people, because I feel like I know them a little bit through the creative journey I’ve gone on with them.

    such a beautiful quilt! I am glad it brought you out of your creative rut. I can relate to you and trying to find a new normal. I broke my leg, earlier this month, and needed surgery. It’s been quite the adjustment to not be able to drive, walk or work and have two little ones to comfort too. I keep telling myself “this too shall pass” & “it could be worse”. Looking forward to being able to do it all again! Thank you for sharing your quilt. An Anna Maria Horner quilt is going on my must make list.ReplyCancel

A few months ago, I was invited to be a part of a private swap. I believe there were ten of us from all around the globe. Anyway, we were assigned partners (who were a secret) and it was up to us to make a mini and some extras to suit our partners. I was […]
