That’s not my arm, but it is fantastic. My queen of hearts quilt became a sticker and then it became a tattoo.
The arm belongs to the magical Annie Ciszak Pazar who is part of a local co-op gallery with me. We also have holiday bazaar booths across from each other – I’m mesmerized by her knitting skills and love her jewelry.

Go see Annie’s one of a kind funktastic jewelry and magical knits at Annie’s Arts & Follies.

If you ever want to turn my art into a tattoo – let me know – this has totally made my day!!!

New Fabric and Fun!

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.
