New (Old) Work – The DVD Sampler!


I made this quilt to go along with my DVD.  I even thought it might be the cover of the DVD. What it is, though, is a sampler of every technique on the DVD.  There’s a few not on the quilt that you can make too!

Check out the chapter list below to see what piece is made in each DVD chapter!

Guess Who is in Quilting Arts Magazine This Month?

QAmagThree guesses and the first two don’t count!  I’m in the latest issue of QA Magazine with an article on how to do Suminagashi fabric marbling!

IMG_3118The day I took the process photos I had the PERFECT amount of no breeze. The suminigashi effect was working out so well!  But man, I needed to at least do my HAIR!  ha ha I didn’t expect you to see that in the magazine! Go out and get your copy and be sure to let me know what you think!

My DVD is here!

Well, this special day has arrived… the one where my DVDs showed up and I got to hold one in my hot little hands.


I wasn’t really expecting them, so I wasn’t dressed for the occasion! ha ha Anyway, I had been sent proofs of the cover and back covers already, so I knew what it would look like mostly. But it was pretty cool to finally get them and crack one open to see what the insides looked like.

InsidespicI have to say I like how pretty the cover looks and seeing my name screened onto the DVD itself was a special thrill.

If you are interested in getting one directly from me, these are now available in my shop. I can include a signed card for you to insert inside your DVD cover.

face with dvdIt’s been an exciting ride to have something so “real” with your name on it. It was a lot of hard work, practice, and fretting. Having a product with my name on it was a big “bucket list” goal of mine for my quilt business, and it’s finally here.

So much is going on lately, and I have big news and fun stuff planned for the next two weeks. Stay tuned, everyone!

My Shop Got an Update!

If you haven’t been by the shop lately, I have all new stuff.  Not only are there are new Sewing Skull mugs and tape measures, but I’ve also added something super exciting that I am really proud of – the all NEW Heirloom Smocking Template!


Mmmm… coffee….

I put a lot of work, research, and effort into the Template, and it’s finally here!

I’ve really enjoyed learning about smocking, and have wanted to share what I’ve learned with other people, but I felt like there had to be a way to make it easier and faster for others.  Well, this template is my way of doing just that. The Template cuts soooo much time out of my smocking projects, and now I can share it with others so that they can see that smocking is easy and fun.


Head on over to the shop and check out the goodies!
