Speedy Zip Dress Pattern!

I just added a new PDF pattern to the shop, the SpeedyZip Dress, (named by my kiddos). it started like this: but that neckline was too big. so I tried this (with Zoe Ingram’s Carried Away fabrics): she loved it so much that every single picture of her in it is blurry as she dances […]

the PE Play Dress pattern!

Ok, so a month ago, the lovely peeps at Robert Kaufman asked if I could make the Speedy Zip Dress in a knit for their Spring Quilt Market booth. I said yes (duh), but after lots and lots of tests, had to just write a whole different pattern for the knit fabric. So it looks […]

BoPeep Dress and Tunic Pattern Giveaway!

As mentioned in this post about PAINT! I’ve totally redesigned my BoPeep pattern, and I’m in LOVE. it’s super clean and reversible, and, best of all, my daughter LOVES it. She has about 8 now, that she wears pretty much constantly. I posted some of my tests on Instagram, (I’m @ramonarose over there), and some […]

SockSack Pattern update

after getting lots of requests, I’ve revised and updated the SockSack pattern to have multiple sizes! (The Small size was the original sock size, Medium is perfect for cowls and scarves, and the Large is the right size for sweaters. 2-at-a-time sleeves, anyone?) My lovely friend Elisabeth made a Medium sample for me, and it’s […]

Shamrock quilt

It’s finished! I made this little baby quilt as a fundraising item for Lyons Academy of Irish Dance (D and the Bean both dance here). My friend Sandi, @missplanner on instagram, was kind enough to share her shamrock block dimensions with me, so I whipped out the top in one night (patchwork is cotton, solids […]

Beatbox cuteness

Bigfoot Quilt (top)

ok, so there’s a new wave on Instagram (I’m @ramonarose over there), led by Katy and Dana, to make Scrappy Bear Paw quilt blocks (to be made into a quilt, obv.). I have been lusting after the beautiful blocks, but I’m really really really trying to finish up my long ignored WIPs, so I was […]

Happy New Year!
