I'm on Instagram!   I'll be posting all my new patterns and designs on Instagram so I'd love to have you join me.

Butterfly Bows

I have new patterns coming in the next couple of weeks that I'm really excited about!  The first little one I want to show you is called Butterfly Bows.  Super fun and easy pincushion pattern.  I have a thing about pincushions ... I love them and I think every sewing room needs a fresh one from time to time.  The bows look like butterflies and there is nothing better than a touch of spring in the middle of winter.  

I hope you like it!  It will be available on my website in hard copy and as a PDF very soon.

Come back and visit!  I have lots of wonderful new patterns to share with you.

Blog Hop and Giveaway

So excited to be the next stop on the "A Flair for Fabric" blog hop! So many talented Henry Glass designers came together to make this book possible and we are all excited about our new Martingale book. Not only is it filled with beautiful fun patterns, but all the proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy victims. It's the season for giving and this book is doing just that. I'm so happy to be part of it!!

Martingale and Henry Glass asked me how I go about selecting fabric for my quilts. Well ... I love love love collections!! If you visit my website or have a look around my blog you can see that most of my quilt patterns are designed with collections. If a fabric line catches my attention, I know I want to work with it.   

I also love scrappy quilts where almost anything goes. I usually fall in love with a border fabric and start collecting lots of fat quarters for the center of the quilt, picking fabric that has the same feel and similar tones. If you are a beginner quilter I think it's important to have fun and not be intimated by the process of fabric selection. If you love it add it to your scrap quilt, it's all about being creative and having fun! 


To help you get started on your next quilt we are giving away an ebook of "A Flair For Fabric" as well as a bundle of Debbie Taylor-Kerman for Henry Glass “Cock-a-Doodle-Doo” line. Leave me a comment below and we will be drawing a name December 8th.

It wouldn't be a giveaway on my blog without adding a bundle of my own fabric!

Leave me a comment below and your name will also go into a draw for a fat quarter bundle from "Flower Girl".
I'll make that draw on December 8th.

There are five days left on the blog hop with five great blogs to visit with lots of giveaways, so check the list below and have fun!

Fabric Sale and a Little Chocolate

Summer is finally here and its time to celebrate with a Flower Girl fabric sale! ... but just for this weekend, so come by and visit my website for more details.

I was playing with one of my favorite patterns Strawberry Social and I thought this is a fun twist.  If you have the pattern and would like the chocolate dip instructions, send me an e-mail and I will be happy to send it to you.

Flower Girl Table Topper

I just finished a little table topper with Flower Girl.

The pattern is called "Just Peachy" and it can be found on my website.  Just Peachy finishes 45" square with 36 blocks but I made this 30" square table topper smaller with 16 blocks.  Small and sweet!

We Found a Good Home!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments!  I love that spring is on it's way and Flower Girl is out is quilt shops.  

I put all your names in a box and the winner is:

Flower Girl

I'm so excited to have Flower Girl in my studio!

The newest fabric collection that I designed with Henry Glass is arriving is quilt shops now.

I have four new quilt pattern designs in the works featuring Flower Girl that should be finished in the next week or two.

  I'll post pictures here as soon as they are ready.

These Fat Quarter bundles are available on my website.  Come by and have a visit!

Flower Girl

A very small sample of Flower Girl, my newest fabric collection that I designed with Henry Glass, is in my sewing room this morning and it’s the perfect way to start off my week!
Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been around my blog for a while …  Life sometimes takes unexpected turns and changes things a little but I’m really happy to be back and ready to design lots of new patterns and fabric!
Flower Girl will be in quilt shops sometime in March 2014 and I’m working on a whole new collection of patterns to share with you very soon.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
