Welcome to my project gallery--where you can find all my creations in one place!
My scrappy take on a herringbone quilt design! Fabric is my Bloomington collection for Moda Fabrics. The pattern is available in my shop as a PDF or printed booklet. This one was pieced and quilted by Kaitlyn Howell of Knot + Thread Design.
Make it with 1 Honeybun (precut 1.5" strips) and 9 fat quarters. (FYI: You can also substitute a Layer Cake--precut 10" squares--in place of the Honeybun.) I pieced this quilt and had it quilted by JC Quilting.

My first ever Honeybun quilt pattern. Make it with 1 Honeybun (42 strips 1 1/2'' x WOF) or fat eighths.
An update to an old favorite. Two size options, make it with 1 or 2 Layer Cakes.
My first pattern using mini charm packs! If you're like me, I've collected oodles of mini charms over the years and have wondered what to do with them. I thought a pin cushion would fit the bill nicely and this 4'' version of my Open Heart quilt is so sweet for this. 1 mini charm pack will make 3 pin cushions (including a scrappy patch backing). Blogged about here, available in my shop in PDF or paper.
I absolutely adore tiny pieces in a quilt. They are stunning to look at and bring a wonderful sense of accomplishment to the maker. It's not difficult to make, but look just how stunning the simplicity brings. What I love most about this is it is the ultimate scrap quilt--make it with 2 charm packs, or 6 mini charm packs, or 9 fat eighths, or scraps. Anything really--mix all your collections together and see what you can come up with. Diamond Dust is blogged about here, and is available in the shop in PDF or paper.
This quilt reminds me of the ones I used to see around Grandma's house when I was a child. They were wonderfully scrappy--not made from yardage like we buy now--but made from old aprons and dresses. Anything they could find, really. Square Dance has a similar hodgepodge sort of charm and is made with 1 Jelly Roll. Blogged about here, and in the shop in PDF or paper.

I used fabric from a collection called "Pure" by Sweetwater for Moda.My first quilt--I made this when I was 14. The center mosaic was a pattern I followed, but I designed the smaller mosaic blocks, and layout. I didn't know what I was doing and pretty much made it up as I went along. I was very ambitious--freemotion quilted it myself, and even embroidered a quote about sunflowers in the outer border. Thank goodness my mother didn't make me pick out my mistakes--I never would have finished, or discovered how much I loved designing. This is where it all began!
