Happy New Year! Oh, the irony. I used to love chalk and chalkboards and sidewalk chalk. As an adult, however, I will only chalk with my girls if I have gloves on, so drying is the chalk to my skin! That bit of negativity aside, I am uncontrollably drawn to the Sidewalk Chalk Quilt pattern… Continue reading Sidewalk Chalk Quilt!
Fly Away Quilt By now, you must know that when Suzy writes a pattern, I get myself to my machine stat. So when she wrote up her pattern for Fly Away Quilt, I grabbed the nearest Kona solids and got to work. Making and squaring up the half-square triangles (HSTs) is the most time consuming part… Continue reading Fly Away Quilt

Secondly,… Continue reading Scrappy Wreath Mini Quilt

Picture Wildstyle in The Lego Movie, at every turn identifying precisely which Lego piece she needs to build The Super… Continue reading Plus and Minus Quilt
How is this related to patriotic quilts? My husband, bless his soul, didn't take any vacation time this year. This translates into him being off for most of the month of November. On one hand, this is unbelievably awesome! He's going with me to drive the girls to school, or taking them outside after school,… Continue reading Patriotic Quilts, I’ve made a few
Credit where credit is due This color blocked quilt is a collaborative effort between my youngest daughter and me. My little girl loves, loves, LOVES the Flora quilt. The Flora quilt is a new quilt pattern by Kitchen Table Quilting (boss quilter Erica Jackman). My daughter helped me choose and arrange all the fabrics. I have… Continue reading My Color Blocked Quilt: the Flora Quilt
I have this thing with rainbow quilts I love a quilt with a rainbow of fabrics. Let's face it: all quilts are special. A rainbow quilt, however, speaks to the 9-year old Lisa Frank fanatic in me. It's a QUILT! With a RAINBOW of fabric! A couple of weeks ago, I decided without any second-guessing… Continue reading Crossroads Quilt – my newest rainbow quilt finish
