Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt

 I have long since been a fan of the old-fashioned sampler quilts - and a few years ago my kids gifted me the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt book!

Now let me clarify - While I am not a particular fan of old-timey farmer floral patterns, I have long admired the actual process- much like foundation paper piecing.  I had an idea.... I've long since wanted to make a Harry Potter inspired version - so for the past year I've been in collection mode - and finally, with the recent completion of my Christmas sewing, finally I get to start!  So watch for upcoming blocks!!!

Updating and Adding Oh My!!

 I've gone through and updated all the pattern sets I've designed to date and included the end product if possible to each of the posts.  I've also added two new pages of patterns, Broadway Musicals and my project in development - The Office quilt.  I'm excited to see both of these do well.  I'd love any feedback if you have any.

It's only just March and I've put together two new Broadway quilts, finished two WIP (works in progress) and getting ready to start a new villanous Harry Potter quilt for this upcoming Christmas.  I decided after the craziness of last year, I really wanted to get all of the quilts sitting in bins in my closet finished.  So... after much contemplation of redoing parts, I'm sending out my original first Harry Potter Bookcase quilt to be long-armed along with the others as I get them done.

Christmas 2020

 I have 37 nieces and nephews.  it's a lot.  I suppose it's the part of being in a big family that I love!  Each year we get ONE family to do Christmas for - this year was my youngest sister's family.  Here's all the quilts!

They were so fun to make and the kids loved them - 

Seeing Quilts with my patterns in the wild


After the fire dumpster year of 2020 I can honestly say I am glad and ready for some new year/new possibilities.

I shouldn't actually complain - 2020 albeit for a few things was not a total dumpster fire for me.  Of course there was that whole breaking off with the guy I'd been seeing for over a  year which got a little scary but I lived through it!

One of my most favorite parts of pattern making is getting tagged or finding someone else's quilt made with my blocks!!!  Here's a couple I found over the holiday season!

It brings me such a sense of  purpose to see them!

What the heck! Getting back to Blogging!

Okay... I didn't fall off the planet.  I am here, I've been sewing and patterning and so many things!  I am updating this blog over the course of this next week with new patterns (and some older not posted) that I've been working on, and lots of project posts!  Enjoy!

So I've done it.
I created my first set of quilt patterns - AND so far so good.  I've created a page pinned just above the blog for untested patterns (and linked the ones already up over at Fandom In Stitches) - Hope you guys love them!

Because I do.
Wait for it....
