New Quilt Patterns!

Posted on May 12th, by Amy in My Fabric, pattern. 82 comments

It feels like it’s been a marathon of sewing for the last two months, but I’m excited to finally share my new patterns with you before I head off to Market!

I made these in my new fabric line – Modern Neutrals, which will be in stores in October 2014, until then – be creative! I had some help getting everything done from Mary, Melissa, Trish and Vicki – thank you ladies, I would be less sane without your help. ;)

I have patterns available for pre-order, or PDF patterns ready to go! Follow the links for details :

Market Preparations!

Posted on May 5th, by Amy in Baby Lock, Bloggers Quilt Festival, My Fabric. 5 comments

Hi there! Things have been rolling right along here – I’ve learned a TON about publishing my own patterns, and have had fun sewing with my own fabric. I’m also getting all the details together for Blogger’s Quilt Festival – I hope you are ready! Just to reiterate – EVERYONE – yes, that means you, is welcome to participate! No matter how long you’ve been quilting, or how good you think your work is – we want to see it! The linkys will be up on May 16th, get your photos taken, and posts ready.

Some of what I’ve been working on, getting ready for Market, with my fabric. Working start to finish with my own fabric, has been so exciting! I love that I can fully realize my vision for the quilts, with my long arm too.

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 »



Star-Crossed Quilt Top

Posted on March 14th, by Amy in My Fabric, work in progress. 7 comments

Happy Friday! This week has been full, and I’m excited to share my Star-Crossed quilt top with you!

I made it with Botanique by Joel Dewberry, and Bella Eggshell (281). Star-Crossed is from my second book, Modern Basics II and a great project for large scale prints!

Now I’m looking forward to quilting up that negative space with something fun! Let me know if you have any ideas! I spent the week working on this, and one other secret project so that I would be ready to manage this box of fabric :

50 pounds of sample yardage, of fabric that I designed! I’ll share more about it as soon as I can. On the docket this weekend :: I’ll be sewing up patterns to go with the fabric, … Read More »
