New Pre-Treated Cyanotype Fabric Squares In the Shop

“Cyanotype” from Wise Craft Quilts is filled with poems, sketches, and other mementos from my kids.

 

When I wrote Wise Craft Quilts, I was interested in creating a book that had all kinds of quilts that had some sort of meaningful element to them. Quilts with fabric that has meaning is certainly important to my work, but what if you have memories you want to preserve in a quilt, but no meaningful fabric tied to those memories to use?READ MORE

In honor of Earth Day this week (April 22), I wanted to talk about PDF quilt patterns. I think they are so great. For both buyers and sellers.

I was thankful to have a few extra minutes this weekend to work on a small batch of #wisecraftfoundandforaged pincushions in time for holiday shopping.

Those on my newsletter list will be notified by email tomorrow (Monday, 12/14) when these are added to the shop. If you would like to be on my list, you can sign up here.

New in the shop- Cotillion Quilt Pattern printed copies

I’ve just added printed copies in the shop of my newest quilt pattern, Cotillion. I named this pattern Cotillion because the on point squares that the blocks form seem to, well, dance!

This line so perfect for use in a quilt pattern- the little motifs don’t get chopped up when you cut the fabric up for a quilt design.READ MORE

Hi everyone! I hope you are well.

Its looking more and more like our best bet for staying healthy these next few months is staying home whenever possible. Which actually doesn’t make me all that sad. I am a homebody at heart, and I love our new house in Santa Fe. I also love having time to sit and make things.

Sounds like 2020’s Fall and Winter seasons were kind of made for me.
