  • Antique Quilt Sections in Shadowboxes

    When my mother went away to college, her grandmother made her this quilt for her dorm room bed. When I went away to college, my mother gave it to me for…

  • Yo-Yos Got My Temperature Rising

    The weather is warming up nicely (at last), and I’m hand sewing like a madwoman these days. These little beauties are all samples for my workshop as part of Camp Aloha…

  • Twin Postage Stamp Quilts for the Little Girls

    About a zillion years ago, I roped myself into a postage stamp quilt project.  It was when our littlest was really little; in about two months, she turns three, and there…

  • Postage Stamp Quilt Progress

    I’m in Austin for QuiltCon the rest of this week, so it seems appropriate that I share the progress I’ve been making on the matching postage stamp quilts I’m putting together…

    This quilt was made well over two years ago for a book proposal, but the project ended up not being included in Stitch Savvy.  When we moved into our new house,…

  • #scrappytripalong Finish!

    Good heavens.  That Instagram.  It’s a breeding ground for quilt viruses.  And this one was a treasure to suffer through.  Thanks to Katy, Rita and Brenda, the #scrappytripalong sprang up between…

    Another finish for the Circle of Trust! This is the herringbone block from Alisa’s Modern Block of the Month for Sew, Mama, Sew this past year, and it is spectacular. The…

  • Tony Danza Meets His Quilt!

    On Saturday night, the internet brought me and Tony Danza together.  And it was magic. If you’ve been following along, you know that around the time we moved into the shop…

  • Diamond Star Block

    I’m finishing up the blocks for my Your (Second) Modern Quilt class–Y2MQ for short–and thought today I’d put together the quilt top.  Naturally, that’s when I realized I had run out…

  • Linen & Double-Gauze Mini-Quilt

    Recently, the do.Good Stitches circle hosts did a swap, the first we’ve done.  Actually, this is the first Flickr swap I’ve EVER done, which seems odd for me to admit, because…
