I was lucky enough to travel to Pasadena recently to attend Quilt Con 2016!  It’s been a really long time since I’ve been surrounded by quilters and their wonderful quilts and I’m so excited to share what I saw with you.  You will have to forgive me tho, I snapped pictures without minding the tags […]

I’ve asked the students for my upcoming class to contact me if they have questions about their sketches.  Part of the supply list asks for a design of the scene they want to create. I will help them develop this scene into a baby quilt!  With my series of Improv Baby Quilts this is often […]

Building in Hana is not for the faint of heart.  Hana is an outpost… it takes two hours to get there, sometimes less if you know the roads well and you don’t encounter traffic.  So when packing for Hana, you do what you need to do to lug stuff out there. Our builder posted pictures […]

When starting an Improv Baby Quilt, I first go to my sketch book and draw out a few compositions to see what catches my eye.  Here are just a few that I drew during the making of these quilts.  I find that I often come to the studio with somewhat of an idea I’d like to […]
