#myquiltcouldlivehere- Value, a scrap quilt story

I have so much to share with you! Now that my book is officially out on the shelves, I want to talk a little about each of the quilts in it and share some background of how they came to be and the meaning behind each one. I thought I’d start with one of my favorites, a quilt called Value. READ MORE

Upcycle Your Quiltmaking Workshop at Modern Domestic

Modern Domestic

I have created some workshops based on the concepts in my new book and I will be debuting “Upcycle Your Quiltmaking“(midway down the page) at one of my favorite shops, Modern Domestic in Portland, Oregon on Saturday on March 25 (can’t wait to see their new location!). There are three spots left for this class. Sign up here and join us for a lovely day of sewing, laughing, sharing stories about the cloths we bring, and quilting. In this all day workshop, we will explore how to create new patchwork stories from found, collected, and important fabric in our life. I will be sharing my tips and things I’ve learned throughout my quilt making journey and from my prior experience studying Textile Science and my career in the apparel design industry. READ MORE

School of Wool Stitch Along!


Our Facebook group School of Wool (created by Betz White, me, and Mandy Leins) is having a stitch along for the Springtime Posey Banner pattern. The only requirement is that you purchase the pattern (please don’t share with others), it has the templates, instructions, embroidery stitches used, and illustrations,  you need. From there, I will be posting weekly videos, assignments, stitch demos, etc. and encouraging everyone to share their progress. Stitching is always more fun with others! Plus its just a fun way to creatively move our way through those last days of Winter, and set our sights on Spring.

If you’d like to join along, please purchase a copy of the pattern here, here, or here.

Join our School of Wool FB group to get access to the videos, demos, and post pictures of your project.

For this new version, I am going to make a subdued floral using heathery grays and creams, with accents of baby spit up mustard and pea greens. I also plan to use beads for this version, and will share how I sew them on in future videos.
