How to make a Snowball Quilt Block- new Youtube video

Snowball Block

 

I recently traveled to some very warm areas recently to visit family (North Carolina I’m looking at you!). That is likely the very reason why I started thinking about making a snowball block quilt. This is one of those blocks that’s super easy to make, and endlessly customizable. The corner block colors can be all the same, or all different. Its fun to see how the quilt changes. Its also a great project to keep set up by the sewing machine, at the ready for any time I have an extra half an hour (like while I’m waiting for computer problems to be resolved…).READ MORE

Modern Quilt Guild Webinar this Thursday


 
Member of the Modern Quilt Guild? Join me tonight, Thursday, February 8th at 9pm EST/6pm PST. I will be discussing different strategies for cleaning and stabilizing vintage fabrics to use in your quilts.

Splendorous- A New Free Quilt Pattern for You!

Splendorous Quilt Look book
I was asked by my good friend Bari J to create a quilt pattern to celebrate Wild Bloom, her newest collection for Art Gallery Fabrics. I don’t usually create quilts for full fabric collections. Sometimes, though, I get inspiration from work I truly love, like Bari’s. Her beautifully floral and happy world of Curated Maximalism makes me smile whenever I see it. So, inspired by her world of blooms and Wild Bloom, this is what I came up with.READ MORE
