Growing up in the Pacific Northwest left me with a deep affection for old-growth trees and the moss that grows on the north side of them. I recently visited Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks with my children and husband, and I was once again drawn to the patterns in the bark and the light filtering [...]

Serenity & Serenity Quilt Patterns

By |November 4th, 2015|finished quilt, My Fabric, pattern|13 Comments

Or "Serenity Now!" in your best George Costanza - I know some of you are thinking it, so I wanted to put the awkward moment behind us! I thought I would just be introducing patterns in this post, but realized I couldn't even share the fabrics with you until Market, thus it hasn't happened yet. [...]

Shhhh - Gus and I are here to tell you just what really goes on the month before Market. This is the stuff mom would rather you all not know.  Like the pizza for dinner again last night, and all the coffee she's drinking! Anytime a big box arrives, we know she's going to be [...]

First I pulled these fabrics, and printed out the paper piecing guide for a feathered star. I've been admiring these patterns and wanting to make one for [...]
