Hello again!  Well, I finished my first 2016 quilt and LOVE it so much, definitely my favorite one so far! And this was such a fun quilt to make, big 16″ blocks that went together really fast.  I decided on Feed Company fabric by Sweetwater for this quilt, one of my favorite lines in 2015, and I just happened to have a couple of Layer Cakes in my stash waiting for the perfect quilt!

Wow, another year flew by, geeze they are going way too fast!  That being said, I have to say as I was pulling my photos together this morning, I’m very happy with what I was able to accomplish last year.  I felt my sewing skills have really improved and I continued to challenge myself to try new techniques, and to put my own spin on each project, whether my pattern or not.  I have posted all of the following projects…

I’ve made several baby and mini quilts this summer, but not one nap size quilt! That will change soon as I finally finished my Jacks quilt before the temps dropped. This is the first quilt that I designed using the EQ7 quilt design software. It’s a fairly complex program, and I only know the basics so…

Hello! So did you catch the Moda Love Blog Tour last week?  Each day Moda designers posted their version of the Moda Love pattern using their newly released fabric line, plus a little background on how they got started quilting and designing. It was amazing how each designer’s quilt looked so different. Bloggers were also encouraged to create a quilt from the “Love” pattern, and here’s mine! You can download the free pattern here and it’s available in 3 sizes…
