Birch’s Circa 52 and By Sea or By Land PLUS an amazing giveaway!

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015 in Blog

When Birch announced that they were re-releasing Circa 52 by Monaluna, my heart skipped a beat. Circa 52 was one of the first collections I worked with when I first started sewing for Birch years ago. Woodland Party is one of my all time favorite prints, and to have it back in stores is pretty exciting stuff. I decided to make a By Sea or By Land quilt with some of the prints from the collection paired with some Mod Basics prints because the pattern is so great at showing off designs. And these designs need to be shown off! Also, I wanted to pair one of my first patterns with this collection. I designed By Sea or By Land right after Circa 52 came out so it seemed like a...

Scraps, Inc., a new book by Lucky Spool

Posted by on Nov 25, 2014 in Blog

I am so excited to share in more detail the project I did for Lucky Spool’s new book, Scraps, Inc. It was such a great day when I was asked to be part of this book. The other contributors are so talented and I was incredibly flattered to be included in the group. The project mission was pretty simple – design a quilt project that was scrap based. As an avid quilter, I am pretty used to having lots and lots of scraps, so book designed to help use them up was all right by me.
