Fabric Book – Collections

My newest fabric book highlights the collections in my studio – all things I love or make me smile. The book pages are muslin constructed on canvas duck and cotton batting. I sewed boxes to capture a snippet of things I collect. The pages above includes old jewelry, wire, keys, funky paperclips and tape measure […]

Are They Finished?

I created the two quilts below in early 2010 and I still can’t decide if they are finished. Oh, they are bound and I’ve attached hangers – so technically they are completed pieces. They are cute and close to how I imagined they would turn out, but something in the back of mind tells me […]

Midnight & Cream

I saw this pattern on Moda Bakeshop that I adapted to use larger cream pieces and not make the pieced back. Overall size is 65” square. The quilting is concentric squares. Top fabric is all from the Basic Grey Authentic line. Back is Heidi Grace Midnight Kiss fabric.

The celery green, cream and tan was springy and despite the quilt being square, the blocks didn’t stay square as I quilted. I’m still practicing my machine quilting on larger quilts – this one is 54” square.
