I came across Moda Fabric’s Rainbow Garden collection and was struck by the brightness of the prints and the whimsical garden motifs. So, I set out to design a quilt that would showcase those fabrics I loved so much. Yes, fabrics are often the source of inspiration for my designs.

“Summer Groove” measures 73″ x 87-1/2″ with blocks that finish at 6″, 10″, and 12″. I wanted to include ...

Wilderness Trail Quilt 1

Driving cross-country with Toby the dog to settle in Georgia was the perfect thing to do between packing everything in Utah and unpacking here. I saw the beautiful landscape I often missed when traveling by plane. This trip reminded me of the quilts I designed for the Wilderness Trail collection by Blank Quilting. This collection features a 24-inch panel with animals found in the wild, canoes, camping, and fishing gear in colors that are perfect for ...

Taking Black and White Prints to a New Level: Duality Fusion by AGF from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Duality_banner-2

The comfort of basic black and white fabrics will never disappoint! Two colors on the opposite side of the spectrum, working together to create something universal and modern. I believe this is the way we feel about these colors because fashion always portrays this combination as high contrast, bold yet classic, and ideal to wear no matter what season it is. But as the quilting world continues to evolve, black and white prints are coming to all patchwork projects alike. This brings to one of my favorite collection releases today, Duality Fusion

I love how this quilt turned out! I named it Vintage Kitchen because the palette reminded me of that fun era of soft pink, blue, aqua, and simple, unadorned lines on everything in the kitchen.

Enjoying the Path of Life With Flight Path Fabrics by Jessica Swift from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

FlightPath_Banner

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to experience how fabrics, colors, and designs positively affected me. I always thought that my style will never change as I always gravitated towards earthy and neutral colors, but there is something about color that always caught my eye. Although neutral colors will always be nurturing, I later discovered that it’s the bright and cheerful colors that complete the mix between cozy and happiness. Sometimes we just need a boost of joy, and today is the day you can experience that with Jessica Swift’s latest collection, Flight Path

Reminiscing With Maureen Cracknell’s Gloria Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Gloria_Banner

I feel like anyone that ever began to sew, the origins started with their grandmother or mother showing them the basics. Since I was a little girl, my grandmother will always have me sit next to her and give me some thread, a needle, and a pile of socks to repair the holes on. As a little girl, I always saw this as a chore, but little did I know that I would love and appreciate this skill that she showed me. It’s made me explore what more I could do, and it even led me to purchase my ...

Curtains and curtain rods are a great way to easily make big changes in a room.

They can make your ceiling feel higher, change the focal point of a room, and make a space feel much ...
