Think Pink

I made this very special quilt for a dear friend of mine who is fighting breast cancer.  We stayed the weekend with them last month, and it was so much fun to give this quilt to her in person!  Love you Holly!! Pattern is Radio Wave by Jae Bird Quilts.  Made with 2.5 inch strips. […]

Summer Lovin’

Yay…another finished quilt (made the blocks in 2009 and pieced the top in 2011)!!!!  So happy this is done, and looking at it, I don’t know what on earth took me so long to finish it! I’m loving the turquoise, orange, and pink combination!  Primary fabric line is Summer in the City by Urban Chicks […]


With Ellie on fall break for 2 weeks, we decided to make a Halloween quilt together.  She organized all the fabric to be sewn, and then she arranged all the squares all by herself.  So proud of her! I didn’t think we’d get this one done for Halloween 2014, but we did!  Yes!!! Post wash […]

Ellie’s Blush

Ellie and I started this quilt back in January of 2011.  We pieced, quilted and sewed the binding on the front.  The only thing left was to hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt. But the quilt stayed nicely folded for years, literally.  She doesn’t even remember this quilt.  Sniff. With the […]

You Are My Sunshine

Yay!  I have a new nephew!  Just the excuse I needed to start quilting again.  I love the combination of the yellows and grays…it’s like sunshine on a cloudy day (you know how the song goes–You are my sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray….). Baby quilts are so fun to make, since […]

Summer Breezes

I designed this quilt a long time ago while traveling for my kids’ swim meet.  In fact, I came across the original design sketches that were on an Embassy Suites notepad.  So it’s fitting that I’m donating this quilt to our swim team’s silent auction. I love the oranges and aquas, and there just might […]

Urban Blooms: Done

I always love when I get to hand deliver a new quilt to its new owner.  I love to see their reactions, and I do believe B loved it. The prewash measurement: 53.5 x 62.5. The postwash measurement: 52 x 59.5. Love me a striped binding!

Urban Blooms

It’s been far too long since I sat behind my sewing machine and created., far too long since I’ve started a quilt, and far too long since I’ve finished a quilt. Sewing and quilting is cathartic and peaceful.  I love the creative process and the accomplishment. And so we start a new year and 2012 […]

Lavendar Fields Baby Quilt

My cousin asked me to make a baby quilt for one of her friends, and since I love making baby quilts (well, all quilts really, but I especially love baby quilts), I jumped at the opportunity.  It’s the same pattern I used for Life’s a Hoot, but I altered the dimensions a bit. I was […]
