It’s been very busy in the studio lately.  The studio has moved and I’ve just uploaded 28 new patterns.  I hope you’ll enjoy them!

I’ve also posted the new installment of Garden Gate, so check it out!

Another cool thing is the Mystery Workshop I’ll be teaching at Craftsy.  I’m so excited for this to begin!  It starts August 1, 2014.  Check it out here:

Happy quilting everyone!



Garden Gate begins!

January 2, 2014

Happy New Year Everyone!

Garden Gate begins today.  The “Getting Started” and January installments are ready to download.  If you choose to do machine embroidery, you’ll need to have a 150 x 150 embroidery capability.  We’re going to use lots of pretty threads for the applique, but we’re also going to use them to add decorative stitches from your machine to the pieced blocks.  I’ll be embellishing my January blocks over the weekend and I’ll post my results to give you some ideas.  If you don’t have an embroidery machine, or just feel like doing a bit of hand embroidery, please let your creativity run amok!

If you would like to post your results, I’ll set up a section in the forum for 2014 BOM results and we share our block results and get ideas from each other.

I’ve got to get back to work…I’m on deadline.

Happy Stitchin!


2014 BOM Ideas

October 1, 2013

I’ve been giving next year’s BOM some thought, and am really considering a machine applique quilt that uses an embroidery machine.  There are some really interesting quilts out there that utilize an embroidery machine!  Has really gotten the creativity flowing.  For those of you that don’t have an embroidery machine, there will be applique templates as well 🙂  I’m thinking about something either floral or holiday inspired…or maybe something similar to a Baltimore Album…haven’t gotten that far in the thought process.  After the Quilt Market things and magazine commitments are met, I’ll give it more thought.  Anyone have a preference or idea?  Post a comment and let me know your thoughts.
