My first Not Finished is my next quilt pattern, Castle Dreams! Here is a sneak peek! The pattern uses 10" squares along with yardage of two fabrics and a background fabric. This quilt is made from Handmade by Bonnie & Camille with a background of Moda Cross Weave in black. I will be using this as a background fabric again. It is so soft!
My second Not Finished, which contributed to my first Not Finished being not finished, is this play quilting on a Statler computerized ...
After going through about a million post-its over the past few years I finally got smarter. I’m sure you tag your quilt blocks while they are all laid out and ready to assemble right? Little pieces of pinned in place paper that end up everywhere but where they need to be. So, I finally gave up […]

What an amazing community we are fortunate to be a part of.!! Every so often I get out of my business hat to make quilts for charity and it is always rewarding.
Here are a couple of stories about my charity support:
This second link was just one of my mini quilts to support AAQI which raised money for Alzheimer's research. My mother's family lost 3 wonderful women to this illness and right now I know another very strong ... read more
I decided to try making her again with some completely different colors, and a little scrappy to see how it changes her attitude. This look will completely change Omni's personality.
Here's the stack I started with to generate a different vibe. I have a bolt of this white floral print from ... read more

Sorry I haven’t been blogging a lot lately, but it’s almost Quilt Market time and I’m busy writing patterns and making fabric samples for several fabric companies (my day job). Wish I could show you what I’m working on but it’s super secret stuff! The new fabrics and patterns are really beautiful and fun though, so expect a lot of wonderful things in your quilt stores soon!
Quarter 3 is over, and it’s time to recap my progress on my UFOs for the 2016 Finish Along. Actually, it's past time! I had this ...read more

We hope to inspire you even more with this cool, muted and elegant color! Pay attention to the colors that were combined with grey in these projects.

This house is high in colors. The door, particularly exuberant, attract the eyes. Strangely, the door frame and the window frames are of different colors. But, as the various colors of the house are reflected in the garden, the whole creates a view the passerby enjoy to see. The flower pot in the kitchen window announces that this is a happy house.
The pattern is available in French and in English in my Craftsy Pattern Store. This pattern has 7 pages and includes instructions about cutting the appliques, a guide for positioning the appliques, patterns in actual size and pictures ...read more
Baby quilts can be so cute – not as cute as the baby of course! My favorite baby quilts to make are flannel rag quilts. They are just so soft and cuddly. This quilt has a bright fun patterned flannel on the back and a pretty flowery, mostly pink pattern on the front. No batting is used – I layer the flannel to make it warmer and give the quilt more dimension rather than just sewing squares together. There are squares appliqued onto circles appliqued onto the main block, and there are circles appliqued onto squares appliqued onto the main block. Not ...read more
Over some time, I had started to collect a significant amount of scrap and panels of Maze and Vale low volume, hand printed fabrics. Saving them for the perfect quilt. After playing around with dashes, inspired by the lines in a text document, I came up with this design.
In my head, I could envision the recently released Art Gallery Fabrics soft Denim for the dashes, and the Maze and Vale prints for the backgrounds.
I love how this quilt turned ...read more
Hi everyone and welcome to the Berry Cross quilt along! I hope you’re all ready to play!
Berry Cross finishes at 48” x 60” (lap size) and contains 20 blocks. During the quilt along, we’ll be sewing up the individual block units first, then assembling the blocks and finally, sewing the quilt top together. This quilt is definitely fast and easy! This week, we’ll talk about fabric selection and requirements.
Let’s start by taking a closer look at Berry Cross. The Berry Cross pattern features two different blocks that allow you to build the quilt you ...read more
Long time Sis Boom fan, Rachel Berwick Hodges, was contacted by her friend Christiana Nelson recently to sew dresses for herself and her daughter. Rachel lives in New Hampshire and Christina is in Texas so they weren’t going to have a chance to met in person, pick a pattern together and take measurements. But luckily with Sis Boom Patterns, you always get the perfect fit.
Rachel said of the experience “These patterns are so great! Christy gave me their measurements and I chose the pattern sizes based off of them, which resulted in perfect fits! I haven’t seen ...read more
