I love Kona colors….

Nightfall, Buttercup, Bahama, Azure, Aqua, Peacock, Turquoise, and Jade… I’m soooo thrilled that I have the new Kona color yard. Just looking at it gets me inspired… I’ve decided my favorite color is Lagoon. And my bedroom is the exact color of Pacific. I cut up a bunch o strips of the aforementioned colors, and […]

London Calling quilt….

Robert Kaufman is making some AMAZINGLY soft fabric, (lawn) with BEAUTIFUL floral prints (London Calling). When I felt it pre-spring-market, I asked if I could design a quilt with it, because it’s SO soft and nice… I finally got the chance, and even got to hand quilt it. I’ve NEVER felt such a cuddly quilt […]

using up scraps/experimenting

So, as mentioned before, I have a million scraps leftover from market… so I’ve been playing… A long long time ago, I pinned a gorgeous quilt on pintrest, but the poster didn’t know the name of her pattern, it was a family heirloom… I finally tracked down the name, maybe (Missouri Starflower, maybe?) but still […]

Magical Rainbows quilt (finished!)

Another WIP crossed off my list! After I made the Kona banner for the We Love Color market booth, I had a yummy stack of all the new Kona colors, so I quickly cut them up and whipped this out. It’s a mildly wonky log cabin, measuring in at 57×74″, so it’s awesome for the […]


I’m trying to knock stuff off my to-do list (so that I can justify adding to it!) first up was this found quilt top… I used leftovers from the new Lazy Daisy Baskets line, by Darlene Zimmerman, with this cute Mother Goose panel… I like the back better than the front…. …probably because the front […]

Little Killa quilt

This was one of the last minute quilts made for the RK booth… I got the fabric the week of market, so I had to design, piece, quilt and bind in a single day. This adorable fabric is called Little Kukla (which autocorrects to Killa on an iphone, hence the title of this post). I […]

C’s office quilt

My poor husband often pulls all-nighters at his office, witha quick 3-am power nap…. I decided he needed a small (throw?) quilt to cuddle into when he was too exhausted to drive home…. so here it is: it’s like 60×70 ish, maybe (I haven’t measured), and made from all fabric on hand (except the green, […]

Market time

I got my postage stamp quilt top done just in time. Quilting it will have to wait till June, as I’ve been informed that the craze of market has begun. This week I have to paper piece a quilt top: Design, sew, and write the pattern for a duvet cover; make a clutch bag or […]


Here’s the quilt for our baby boy, as designed by me and the Bean. C bought me an early birthday present, a walking foot, so this was my first time using it. LOVE. here’s the back, pieced with scraps. here’s the oops on the back. just so I don’t get a swelled head. here’s the […]

I finished this one late at night, so only have midnight pics. The purple and tan quilters linen from last week got turned into this quilt. Chopsticks by Jaybird Quilts. I
