Congratulations Betty! Hopefully you received my email already!

I’ve been kinda quiet online this last week, sewing a ton, and getting to the nitty gritty of pattern writing too -

Six Years & 1400 Posts Later. . .

Posted on March 17th, by Amy in give away, Me, My Fabric. 331 comments

It’s time for a giveaway! (this really is my 1400th post!)

Honestly, I’m so thankful for the community, friends, encouragement, and inspiration that I’ve found online – had I not started blogging six years ago, I’m not sure what I would be up to right now!

 I love being creative and sharing my love of fabric, and beautiful design with all of you here. All the opportunities that I have worked toward over the last six years seem to have culminated last week, when sample yardage for my own fabric line arrived on my doorstep!

I set to work cutting up fabric for the patterns I’ve been planning, above is a quick peek at a few of the prints I designed for Moda (pinch me!). You’ll notice the fabric bears the same name as my … Read More »

Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge & Template Giveaway!

Posted on July 10th, by Amy in Blog Info, give away. 128 comments

This pattern is one of those that I’ve always admired, but never thought I would make. All the tiny pieces, and TEMPLATES – usually I’m not a fan, but this set was so EASY to use! Read on for your chance to win a set of templates!

I’m of the sort, that likes to try a pattern as intended to begin, then see about how I might alter, or extend the pattern.  So I made a simple runner (just the top, so far) over the course of a couple evenings.

Without thinking, I started pinning the curved edges together. I snapped a pic and posted it to instagram and facebook, and had a few people comment about using glue to baste. Duh! I have few tubes of LapelStick to put to use!

Once I started … Read More »

Modern Basics II :: Blitz!

Posted on February 25th, by Amy in give away, Modern Basics. 9 comments

Hi there! I’m excited to have a few friends share about my new book today!

Modern Basics II was written as a follow up for Modern Basics – clever, huh?

I wanted to guide more quilters on their own path to finding creative therapy, no matter how busy or inexperienced they are at quilting. I often talk with people who don’t quilt, or don’t have time to quilt, and I always encourage them to find a few minutes each day or week, to learn something new, or just play with fabric. This group of patterns is geared for the new and confident quilters, with a bit of a challenge mixed in!

Today we are giving away 15 ebooks
and
3 autographed copies with a few extras!
