Faith Hope and Love…These Three

How many ways can we use Kraft-tex?  For the Ambassador June project I decided to try an inspirational home decor project.

NOTE: As a Kraft-tex Ambassador for C&T Publishing I received the Saffron hand-dyed and pre-washed Kraft-tex.

Try Something New with Kraft-tex

 I finally made time to have some fun with ink stamping and heat embossing. I’ve had a desire to learn how to use stamps and embossing powder for several months now.

I’ve been gathering ink pads, stamps, stencils, powders and accessories for 8 months. During that time I have been watching video tutorials too.

First, I practiced on white card stock. The leaf stamp is inked with Ranger archival inks: Jet Black, Paradise Teal and Sepia.  Once the paper is stamped with ink, clear embossing powder is spread over the wet ink.  Next ...

2019 - A Fruitful Year

Is it possible I made all these quilts in 2019?!  A year for me is 10 months. I don’t sew in November and December.  I have been a busy bee!

Let’s take a gallery tour.

1) I see a small theme of light backgrounds in some Island Batik Ambassador projects.

Making Plans


Plans. I have them. You have them. Sometimes plans need to live on paper and not just in our mind. Do you use a planner? I not only use a planner, I NEED one to organize my weekly, monthly and yearly schedule.


I made a cover for this planner a few months ago. However, I wanted creative playtime with Island Batiks, thread and Kraft-tex.



The fabric stripe are fun, but best part of this project are the vinyl windows! The windows are perfect for featuring you favorite quilt block or fabric.


Three Island Batik fabric collections, Speakeasy, Soil ...

Travel Tray Inspiration

Have you made a travel tray?  

Travel trays have been on my “To Make” list for a while. So, I thought they would be perfect for the Island Batik Ambassador 3D Challenge.  This the first of two 3D challenge projects.

NOTE: Island Batik provided the fabric and Kraft-tex was provided by CT Publishing.

Island Batik and Kraft-tex Trays

Island Batik and Kraft-tex is a winning combination for a travel tray. Kraft-tex is firm yet flexible. The tray sides remain at an angle even when the tray is unsnapped. 

I made two with Kraft-tex  as the base and ...

Planner Cover

I’ve been falling in love with the rugged-durability of Kraft-tex, so I decided to make a Kraft-tex cover for my 2020 Quilter’s Planner and Pocket Notes book. 

The design is my own. It is a practical design with functional options like a pen and marker holder, and a business card pocket.

NOTE: The Quilter’s Planner, C&T Publishing and Island Batik provided the planner, Kraft-tex and fabric for this project.

Of course, I had to make a  cover for the Pocket Notes book. Isn’t the heart window cute?  Never fear, vinyl was stitch around ...
