  • Painted Basket Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter August 12, 2015

    This pattern can now be purchased here! A few weeks ago Art Gallery Fabrics emailed to see if I would be interested in creating something with Katarina Roccella’s new line, Imprint.  I really like Katarina’s designs, but I’m sure you have noticed from my last few quilts, I tend to go for lighter colored fabrics that have very little in the way of saturated color, and Katarina’s fabrics never lack…

  • AGF Stitched // Fractal Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter July 27, 2015

    Once again, I was so pleased to be asked to participate in the AGF Stitched series.  This time around we used the Kites Plus Ruler by Creative Grids to create the Fractal Quilt (this link takes you to the free pattern).  Despite there being quite a few Y-seams, the quilt went together ridiculously fast!  It ended up taking me two days, but only because I got a late start cutting on…

  • Quilting Anna’s < > Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter June 17, 2015

    Today i’m sharing photos of Anna’s < > Quilt from her new book Handmade Style.  I just love the simplicity of this quilt!  It’s so “Dutch Modern” to me, and perfectly fits Anna’s style.  I wasn’t at all surprised when I pulled this top out to quilt.  Anna and I talked briefly about the pattern and both arrived at this simple design. The design is a simple repeat that I drew…

  • Quilting Up and Down

    Sometimes Crafter June 16, 2015

    Today I wanted to share with you the quilting I did on Anna Graham’s “Up and Down” quilt in her newly released book – Handmade Style: 23 Must-Have Basics to Stitch, Use and Wear.  Without a doubt, I knew this quilt had to have a custom quilting, not just in style but the designs as well.  Every bit of quilting was designed by me and drawn up in AutoSketch (which…

  • Quilting A Meadow Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter June 2, 2015

    This is going to be a picture heavy post today.  More often than not lately it seems i’m doing a lot of “custom” quilting.  What that usually entails is a few different designs in different places on the quilt, some quilts more intricate than others.  This quilt happened to be my favorite type of custom quilting, the kind where a client says “Do whatever you want!  Surprise me!”  We talk…

    Modern Medallion Workbook

    Sometimes Crafter May 14, 2015

    When Janice and Beth asked me to submit ideas for their Modern Medallion Workbook they were putting together, I was a little stumped as to what I would do.  I had never seriously thought about making a medallion quilt, let alone designing one.  It was a challenge, and I love challanges.  My life was really hectic at the time, and I wasn’t sure if I could fit it in, but i’m…

    Make It Take It // Macaroon Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter April 12, 2015

    Sometimes I have the hardest time naming quilts.  I have to give credit for the name of this one to my friend Rachel.  Once she suggested the curved pieces look like Macaroons I thought swirls would be the perfect quilting for between the “cookies”.  I designed this quilt after Krista Hennebury asked me to submit an idea for her book Make It, Take It.  I have known Krista through our blogs for…

  • Improv Diamonds Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter April 4, 2015

    I started this quilt two years ago as a baby shower gift.  I don’t have a lot of friends from my school days, but Betsy is one i’ve known since she came to our high school as a Freshman.  I was a year ahead and a teacher assistant in one of her classes, and it was through that class we became friends.  I can’t remember the reason, but I wasn’t…
