My friend Dana of the Old Red Barn wrote me awhile back and told me about her first book.. it's like a baby.. it's the FIRST one... and we ALL squeal and rejoice over the FIRST book FINALLY being published.. yes.. we all feel like that. I have had 30 books published and I still can remember how amazing it was to hold my first one.
Of course I had to have Dana on my show to chat about it... that was July 28,2014

I am passionate about learning and teaching. I've been taking classes at Craftsy since ... well almost since the day they started! I've interviewed their instructors and I've enjoyed seeing how they have refined and improved our online class experience over the years.
I have partnered with Craftsy to bring you Class Reviews. I am taking the classes then telling you about them and giving you the insider scoop on where you should NOT fast forward.. wink!
When my good friend Gail Kessler filmed a quilting basics class (it is FREE CLICK HERE) I knew this would be ...
And I put together the 2nd quilt for a little girl I know
Instead of the Orange border I share HERE, I went digging into my scrap box of 'One for You, One for Me' to see what other larger pieces I already had cut from making the quilts to to with the fabric line.
I found the large pieces of Aqua coneflowers, put them up on the wall.. and way I went! I did use a cream inner border because I liked the calm of it.

Hello there! Who doesn't love economy /square in square blocks? We have seen lots of them lately on the blogosphere and on the internet in general that man, it's impossible to resist the temptation of making tones of them!
My last baby quilt was made in part of economy blocks, but I didn't have enough! So, this week I've been making lots of them, in many different sizes and using different techniques or approaches. It's been so useful to me that I've thought I would share a little bit of of it here.
Hi! I can't believe it's already Monday, my weekend has flown by...we just got back home this morning, after eleven hours of train and three of ferry (no complains!), from a trip to the Lofoten islands. It was my birthday gift and wow, it's been truly amazing! It's such a special place to get lost if you enjoy NATURE and small villages. I will show you some pics later this week and I also want to recommend one of the places we slept where we felt almost better than home (just in case someone reading ...
Got a bunch of 1 1/2" strips of blacks and neutrals and an urge for a fun new Halloween quilt? I love the way the intricately pieced borders of this one suggest an ornate frame. For this year, I want to make myself another one with a scalloped black outer border.
From neutral 1 1/2" strips, cut eight 8 1/2 strips and sew them long sides together to form the background for the center square. Press.
Print the bird silhouette and enlarge or reduce it so that it fits neatly into the center square. Using fusible web ... read more
Below are some of the bags I made as well as one donated by my mom.
A few of ladies also brought finished quilts to go in their bags. Below are the four I brought home to deliver to the hospital this week.
I put them all on my clothesline this morning and had to stand in the furtherest corner of the yard to get them all in ...

Fabric 101 is my on going series where I share how I use fabric. It might be a tutorial, it might be how I work with fabric, or like today, it's how I audition.
My fabric line 'One for You, One for Me' from Moda is arriving in stores and I wanted to play with the scraps a bit to celebrate! I'm using up scrap squares and strips for two quilts that will go to two precious little girls in my family.
I shared the first part of the border audition the other day HERE. You can also ...
Have you ever tried to FMQ a feather wreath? Did you know you do not need a stencil to do one?
I have taken lots of pictures to show you how. Soooo… get ready for this picture heavy post!
Before we start:
- I used a Frixion pen to draw on the fabric. The lines disappear when heated (iron), but may appear when the fabric gets really cold. So maybe not the best pen to use on fabric that will be used in freezing temperatures, like in a car.
- In order to create this tutorial I did have to break thread ...read more
Well sometimes I'm very chatty!
When 'shuffling' my studio stuff (read here) I came across a pile of squares left over from making quilts for my next fabric line One for You, One for Me.
I put those up on my design wall last night
and asked at my online Quilt Bee and Facebook if I should replace anything with the ONE extra green block I had. If you have been reading along at my Quilt Bee you learn the insider scoop, only shared HERE !
Center done, now auditioning borders
This is for my little great niece!
