Another Fun Project

Here is another project that I posted on the
Moda Bake Shop some time ago.
I use my sewing machine Cover-Up all the time -- love the way it looks and protects my sewing machine.
This project is easy and fun to make – If you haven’t already you might like to head over to the Moda Bake Shop and download the pattern!

I Love Pincushions!

I made a couple of these pincushions this past weekend. I had forgotten how much FUN they are to create! If you haven’t made one yet you might like to download my instructions that you’ll find on the Moda Bake Shop.

Sew easy and fun, they are the perfect pincushion to share with friends or to have beside your sewing machine.

Here is the link to the tutorial.

Canadian Thanksgiving

We had a beautiful Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. It was fun to spend it with family and friends eating lots of good food and enjoying the warmest Thanksgiving Day on record. The autumn color around us was at its peak - just spectacular!

We all watched as Jenny rode her sweet Apples and I captured this moment. We may have to frame this shot.
 What a memorable weekend it was.

Hope your weekend was just as fun!

My Big News!!

A secret I have been keeping for months and months is finally ready to come out. I'm thrilled to introduce you to my first fabric collection,


When Henry Glass contacted me and asked if I would be interested in designing a fabric line with them, the answer was easy ...YES! YES!! YES!!!

With six different patterns in three colors ways each, Butterfields is made up of 18 fabrics.

I’ve also designed a complimentary (free) pattern to accompany Butterfields. This pattern offers two different versions of the same design. One is called Color Burst and the other is called Sparkle. It’s the same block, but depending on the fabric placement the look is completely different.

I’m going to be busy designing many more new quilt patterns with Butterfields. I’m REALLY excited about my first collection and I’ll have lots of new quilt designs to share with you soon.

Color Burst


Butterfields will be out in Quilt shop May 2012.
It can be pre-ordered through   

P.S.  I will post a link to the free pattern as soon as it's avaliable.
