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.

Post Quilt Market

Posted by on Nov 7, 2014 in Blog, Uncategorized

So I know it’s a been a couple weeks since Fall Quilt Market, but I just wanted to share with you some of the activities I was able to partake in.  This last Quilt Market I had a LOT going on.  It was so much fun!  I did my very first Schoolhouse, which is a half hour presentation about my book and did a video tutorial on two of my Sew A Modern Home projects, the Starburst pillow and the dining room napkin, for Brewer, which will be up on YouTube in the next month or so. I also did two book signs, one at Martingale’s booth and one at Birch Fabric’s booth. It was really amazing to meet so many amazing people and to get to show off my book. I also...
