A stocking for baby Crockett

baby crockett needed a stocking… i had WAY too much fun making this one… but improv piecing all those little letters (finishing at 1.5″ square) was super time consuming, so the rest of us used our old stockings. will make similar ones for the rest of us this year…. hopefully. All made with scraps and […]

LAMQG scrap swap

Our October (or maybe september) LAMQG swap was a scrap swap. I was lucky enough to get scraps from my friend Nicole, and one day, while looking at the scraps, I noticed that they all went well with this peachy-pink Essex Linen that I had. so I sewed up the pieces into little bits of […]

Block of the day

it seems like journalling is becoming a thing these days, and part of me wants to jump right in and play along, either with lists or special books or whatever, but another part of me remembers the Project Life album I requested 4 years ago that remains unopened, etc, and thinks perhaps something simpler would […]


I’m trying to figure out how/where to stop on my Tangerine Tango EPP top. not the side, just the edges…. In theory, every hex should have a square on each side, and then triangles to fill the gaps… If I only do completed hexies, though, 2 of the sides have these hugely uneven edges: and […]

catch up.

Sooo, it was really hot, and I was knitting a lot, and I wound up having to take my knitting to the hospital, and finishing it there, while holding this little dude. and then I came home, and made a quilt, but totally forgot to take better pics of it before giving it away…. but […]

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 […]
