Quilt Patterns



What I’m Working On…

I can’t even stand it anymore, I have to show you this. First off, I have to say I’m biased a bit toward this fabric. I mean, I did the printing and website for Sarah Jane for nearly 2 years. Not to mention that Sarah is one of my sweetest, most talented friends, and she’s right here in town with me! So really, I HAD to make something from her first fabric line, Children at Play, for Michael Miller.

And if you must know, I couldn’t just stop at one something. I mean, there’s a boy colorway and a girl colorway. What’s a quilter to do?

Plus, this quilt was BEGGING for some old style topstitching. Because again, this fabric was just too darling not to.

Both versions should be quilted, bound, (and ironed, ahem) in the next few days, and then, more (better) pictures. Promise.

What are YOU working on right now?

Spring International Quilt Market: Salt Lake City

Quick recap:

I spent 5 straight days in about 80 square feet.

My mom & a few good friends were there to force me to talk, and remind me to eat.

If I had my way, I probably would have sat in the corner and only spoke when spoken to.

But I’m so glad I didn’t.

There were too many amazing people to meet to stay locked up in my introverted-ness.

And meet them, I did. (Pictures of friends, soon.)

Didn’t get pictures of other booths, because I couldn’t really leave mine for more than a few minutes at a time. (But I think there are enough pictures floating around out there that you’ll get to see the amazing talent going on…)

One quilt market down, dozens to go.

Somehow, I think this was the hardest and it will all get easier from here on out, because I know what to expect.

Quilt market=made of awesome.



They’re Here: New Patterns Spring 2011


Size options, a table topper, a bag, and a baby playmat? My my, branching out.

I love them all, but seriously? That Russian Rubix is to DIE for up close and in real life–and that Josephine Kimberling knows how to make some gorgeous fabric. (I feel like I’m picking a favorite child.)

Get them while they’re hot. First 10 orders get a free surprise with their order, cause I love you guys.

They’re in the shop.

Spotlights on each pattern after market (wish me luck).

Do you love them as much as I do?

xoxo

PS: If you’re coming to market, come see me in booth #2243!
