I finished the 2 quilts in the last couple weeks, and I’m super proud of myself, but I still have many quilts that have been in a giant UFO stack for the last couple of years. With fall, and Halloween coming up soon, I decided to pull out the spooky wall hanging quilt I’d left…

The Long Awaited Fuzzy Duckling Quilt

Before Mil was born, I picked out a lovely collection of fabric to make her a quilt. It was a big stack of mixed prints, and the Little Golden Books Fuzzy Duckling Panel. I had the whole thing pieced and ready to baste, but she showed up a week earlier than expected (which was extra…

An Updated Quilt Layout

I’ve had lots of requests recently to use the layout design I originally made for my #DYOSampler Quilt, which became the base for my Communique Quilt.  So, I took a little time and made a nice clean (digital) version of the layout for you all.   I think this version will be much more useful…

My Quilt Design Process

Though it’s something I haven’t had much time for with the new baby, I love making quilts.  I think it’s the concept of taking a stack of fabrics that anyone could have and making something completely my own. My design process usually starts with a specific fabric or concept.  I often find myself attracted to…
