New Fabric and Fun!

IMG_1374-2018-01-12-06-05.jpg
I’ve been seeking new “skin tones” for my art quilts. I often cannot find the variety I want from commercially available fabrics, so I started designing some new fabrics with my own handwriting or text. I love sharing my obsessions so I won’t be keeping these all to myself – I’ve added them to my Etsy shop.

A few months ago, Brewer Sewing and Quilting Supplies, a wholesale distributor to quilt shops, started carrying my patterns! It’s a new adventure for me but my favorite part about joining Brewer is that I can inspire creativity in even more quilters and crafters. If you’d like to get your hands on my paper patterns, tell your local quilt shop to order a few when they next order from Brewer.

I’ve been cleaning my studio and office space to prepare for a new year of creative fun. I needed to make some room for storing patterns and fabric, so I put together some fun bundles of paper patterns and fabric in my Etsy shop to inspire your creative play. The best part – they are on sale!

I’m off for a bit of traveling fun. While away, I’m sharing quilts from a mini travel series I created with a fun cotton linen print.

Making Making

With only a few days until the holiday craft/art fair season begins, I am holed up in my studio creating lots of art quilts and goodies.

I’m looking forward to seeing the finished quilts soon. If you are in town, hope to say hi in person on Saturday at the Christmas Towne Bazaar at South High.
