Have you visited our shop yet? We’re slowly adding to it. We’ve got a couple of patterns like the Puzzled Pinwheel quilt
And this new pattern was just added. Introducing Summer Breeze.
I just love those tiny pinwheels. So cute!
These patterns are available as downloadable PDFs. The beauty of getting your pattern as a download, is that you get it immediately and you can save it to your computer or print it out. No waiting for the mail and no shipping costs. I love to get my patterns like that.
We’re also starting to carry our ...read more
Today is an encore of my podcast from May 12, 2014
Listen to host Pat Sloan chat with guests Ellen Murphy, Amy Smart, and Lynette Anderson on the American Patchwork & Quilting podcast.
This is the first in my series of Quilt Show Posts with a color theme! On this memorial day weekend I want to honor all those that are serving and have served in our military. My father-in-law that was in WWII and Korea, my great uncle, my friends, and those I don't know.
I designed this quilt for a fabric line I did a few years ago. It went on tour and at the end was given to a solider.
Please scroll down and share a photo of YOUR Red, White & Blue quilt!

Years ago, I had a quilt plan in my head that called for a LOT of different fabrics. I thought that the best/easiest way to get the fabric variety I needed would be to use precut strips, and I purchased … Continue readingread more
I am SO excited to share that the quilt that the quilt that I helped make as a wedding present for my sister has been made into an AMAZING pattern!
Since it was originally a wedding quilt, we decided to call it "Dashing to the Chapel". The quilt is made up of all churn dashes -- in three different sizes. Some of the large blocks have little bitty 4 inch churn dashes nested inside!
We used the Modern Roses collection to make the quilt and we can't wait to see how you all take it and make it your own ... read more

As you read earlier this week for my Blogger’s Quilt Festival post, my Happy Star quilt was made for the Schnitzel & Boo mini quilt swap earlier this year. And now, it’s available as a pattern for you all to make too!
It is a paper piecing pattern that would suit a confident beginner, which means that even if you’ve never paper pieced before but aren’t afraid of a few more seams than a more basic pattern, you could do this!
I had some incredibly helpful pattern testers on this pattern, and they came back with beautiful ...
The June/July 2015 issue of Quilters Newsletter officially goes on sale today, and many subscribers already have their copy. The issue features Struggle by Elsbeth Nusser-Lampe on the cover, a lovely art quilt we chose for its summery look.
Another seasonal quilt we included in the issue is Beach Glass, a pattern by Joyce Robinson.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Here’s the part we hate: there is an error in the pattern. The rotary cutting diagram indicates that the white background A patches should be ...read more

My second entry to the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is called Celestial Orbs:
This quilt was inspired by the traditional “Robbing Peter to Pay Paul” block. The center stars are paper pieced:
This makes really nice sharp , perfect points when the melon units are added.
I used many of my favorite fabrics—bits of Tula Pink, Alison Glass, Lizzy House, Violet Craft, Sarah Jane, and a few others.
I had a hard time deciding how to quilt the quilt—I think it would suit itself well to intricate custom quilting, but in the end I decided to offset the solids with ...read more
I don’t foundation piece often, but when I do, it’s something awesome like this.
I found the free pattern for this foundation-pieced 10″ Vulcan Greeting block on a fan-generated website where pop-culture geekery and the needle arts collide, which makes it perfect for nerds like me. When I saw this pattern I knew I wanted to make it for a good friend of mine whose love for the original “Star Trek” series goes back many years (nerds of a feather flock together apparently, although I am ...read more
Over the years of designing and sewing and pattern making there has become quite a collection of patterns! I am the kind of sewer who tries a new thing every once in a while and then switches over to something different. Thus, there is so many different kinds of patterns- from dolls, plushies, mug rugs, […]

Sew 4 Home made this delightful round piped pillow with a gathered top and I couldn’t be more in love. Comfortable, colorful and easy to make. The darling contrasting covered button and piping is icing on the cake!
They used 2 fabrics from an oldie but goodie Sis Boom line called Happy Land. Since Happy Land can be hard to find these days, may I recommend our newest line of fabric, Caravelle Arcade? It launched at the beginning of May and would be perfect for this project!
I’m thinking Jessica in blue paired with Bonnie in blue….
About a week ago, Svetlana of Sotak Handmade posted this tutorial about the quilt as you go technique. I had seen this done before but hadn't really done it myself. I filed it away in my mental to-do list for another time. Then, today, Debbie at A Quilter's Table posted this about her experience with Svetlana's technique. Well I happened to have some free time today and these 2 posts were just the nudge I needed to try something new!
After some scrap digging and improv piecing, here is the square of quilt-as-you-go fabric I ended up ...
