Hi there! This space has been quiet for a while! I thought I’d better share my recently finished quilts with you before I get back to my sewing machine!
Chic Neutrals has three quilts in the quilting cottons, a tote bag, and table runner/napkin set in linens. You can see the linen patterns here.
Trinket is a paper pieced quilt – don’t let that intimidate you though! It’s a simple block to sew. Included in the pattern are baby, throw, twin, queen and king sizes. Featured here is the twin, which used 20 fat quarters + a variety of low volume backgrounds.
Happy Hour uses a Honey Bun, which is the perfect way to make a quilt with tiny squares! Baby to queen size quilt, all use just one precut + yardage for the negative space. It’s a fun pattern that could be whipped up … Read More »
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 :
Up first is Soiree –
This graphic block is made from a Layer Cake, and really shows off all the prints in the collection – plus it’s super fast!

Hi friends! This may be old news to some of you, but I have a quilt in Martingale’s latest compilation book Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe. There are 19 quilts in this one book, each from a blogger in our own community!
See that one on the top left? That’s mine! It’s called Jigsaw, and made without blocks – just cut and sew the quilt top. I’m really excited for the advance copies to arrive, all the projects are fantastic, and there’s a few I’d like to make myself!
This quilt is super fun and simple to make, in any color scheme! I’m excited to see it made by some of you. I made it in a 50″ square but instructions are included for a twin size too, and from there … Read More »
I’ve been teasing you with progress pictures of this quilt for the last month, and I’m so happy to finally have a finished quilt to show you!
The quilt is made with Spring Promise by Ana Davis for Blend Fabrics – which is shipping now!
I love the soft colors, and simple piecing in the blocks. This pattern is a great intro to flying geese, I included lots of illustrations so even the newest quilter can be proud of them.
The quilt measures 45″ x 54″ – in the pattern, I’ve included six size options and four block sizes.
The pattern is available on Craftsy, and Meylah
I loved making this quilt, so much, I’m working on it again! Hopefully I’ll have more to share next week, … Read More »

Wow it’s been a slow week here! I’ve been getting this pattern ready to sell and taking care of a few other details for The Sewing Summit, along with a cold in the house (4 kids – need I say more?) my time has been stretched.
I shared this quilt for Blogger’s Quilt Festival, and have pulled together all the details and double checked my math before releasing the pattern. And so I am pleased to tell you that it is available in the shop, for your immediate download upon purchase! I love the immediate download feature….so simple! Anyway, this quilt will be fabulous in your favorite prints or solids – imagine a gradiation of solids – pretty!
I’m still piecing two quilt tops, and I’m thinking about table runners for Christmas presents. Have a great resource? I’d … Read More »
Hi friends ~ I’ve had a full few days, getting this pattern ready, de-stashing, and upgrading my blog! What do you think? I’m really excited to learn more about this blog and all that it can do. I am also excited to show you my Balanced Connections quilt, I really love this design!
It’s a little hard to see in this picture, but the binding on the right, that’s my favorite part. I pieced one strip of each of the colors into the binding – the little bits of color are just what it needed! The throw finishes at 60″x72″ – officially my favorite size quilt.
Ella was “helping” me, and was popping her foot in when possible…I just love how the quilting shows up in this photo, and … Read More »

Hi there! Another finish for me – I hope you enjoy seeing another new quilt :)
I’m setting on a new path, I hope you will join me! I have a pattern to offer you and I hope to have more in the coming months too. This is a quilt that I originally designed to use my scraps from another project. I call it Simple Times –
This is a small lap quilt, 52″ x 52″ and can be made with a layer cake (10″ squares) and charm pack (5″ squares) or yardage of your choice. Instructions for cutting and piecing the quilt top are included for both.
I pieced this top with Oz fabrics, and I love the bright colors! I had two friends test it, Amber did a scrappy version, and Heather made her’s in Blush. I hope that you … Read More »

Oooppps – If you did not get an updated pattern and already purchased it please let me know, I will verify and get it off to you right away!My little Sassy Tote. It measures 9″ wide and tall, and 3″ deep. With 2 interior and 1 exterior pocket.

I feel like the winner! Thank you so much for all your kind words about my pattern – I’m excited to see where this goes, and my head is swimming with more ideas. If only I could find more sewing time!!
I would love to see all the various prints and batiks in this bag – you all have some great ideas. I think that may be my favorite part about the bag – the ability to mix and match, and make it personal.
As for the winners –
