“Cousin Sarah” as she’s known on this blog had a baby. A while ago. Her second little boy is named Levi and he’s as precious as could be. Not that I’ve ever met him in real life… but I feel like you get to know kids by looking at their photos and videos on Facebook. [...]
My brother and his wife Morgan got married on July 2nd of this year. They conceived a child approximately 7 to 10 days later, but that is beside the point (of this post)! As a quilter, I see milestones such as weddings (and pregnancy announcements/births) as opportunities… for myself! I can be pretty self-centered [...]
Hey, kids! Do you remember this quilt? To catch up on this project, check out the intro and Block A.

Today I’m going to explain how to make Block A for the quilt. But first, let’s have a refresher. This is the quilt we’re making:

Any quilters out there? Hello?
Today I wanted to share a quilt I recently completed (actual pictures of the finished quilt are coming soon) that was fun, easy to make, and allowed me to use up a lot of different fabrics left over from other projects.
It seems as though in a down economy [...]
I’ve been playing catch-up in making quilts for family members and friends who’ve had babies recently (or not so recently now). Ideally, I’d like to give a quilt immediately upon a birth or even before. BUT, as I’m juggling this full and happy, if not a little chaotic household, quilts are getting turned out 6+ [...]
Here is the quilt I’m currently working on and will be showing you step by step how to make. I don’t have a name for it yet, but it will be a quilt for a baby boy eventually.
A little background: several months ago before I had my youngest son, I was readying his [...]
In yesterday’s mail, I received a Connecting Threads catalog. I love this catalog, although I haven’t ordered anything from it yet. I just like to look at the quilts, fabrics, books, accessories, etc. Right before bed I was leafing through the pages, and gasped when I saw this quilt:
I gasped because it looked [...]
I have to tell you, friends, about my super-awesome new quilt designer friend. Her name is Kelly and she is the owner of The Wooden Bear – a pattern design company she started in 2002. I met Kelly at the Ladies of the Lake retreat at the end of October; she gave a presentation on [...]
