Fandango Tablerunner

I must stay I fell in love with this fabric - Fandango by Kate Spain. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. While I was happy to send this tablerunner to Sallie, my sister-in-law, for Christmas, I was sad to see it go. It was a fun proj! I did simple vertical lines for the quilting to give it a more modern look.

Man, I wish my camera didn't suck so much! It doesn't do this fabric justice!


Several late nights and two seasons of Grey's Anatomy later, I am FINALLY done with this quilt! Woot! I can't tell you how happy I am to be moving on to my next project. Stay posted...

How to Join Ends When Binding

This is the best tutorial I have seen on how to join ends when binding a quilt. This a great technique!

Latest Stash

I bought this fabulous fabric online at Spool. I am in love with it. I'm planning to use it to make a new bedspread for our bedroom. I'm still deciding on a pattern, but I know I want it to be scrappy and square-themed. We shall see!

T-shirt quilt

My husband Brandon had tons of t-shirts that had sentimental value that he couldn't wear anymore but didn't want to throw away. Perfect solution: t-shirt quilt! The shirt in the center are the lyrics to Portugal's national song. He lived there for two years so I guess it makes sense.

Log Cabin Stars - Work in Progress

I started this quilt two years ago with my Aunt Nancy. She finished hers months ago...and...I am still working on mine. I'm almost finished - I just need to finish quilting the top and bind it. I love this pattern. The blocks are completely paper pieced, with a log cabin center and 8 star points. It looks complicated but is incredibly easy. My goal is to have it done by the end of the year!

Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

I had some extra scraps from my table runner quilts, so I decided to make this wall hanging. I attempted to design a cute little paper-pieced tree quilt pattern. I think it turned out okay. I'll scan my pattern later if you want to use it. :-)

Christmas Table Runner

I needed some little projects to keep me motivated, so I made some table runners for my family. I used one of my favorite paper piecing patterns - log cabin stars. It looks super complicated but paper piecing makes it super easy!

Star Quilt

My mom made me this one for Christmas a few years ago. It's one of my favorites. I hope I can quilt like this someday!

Friendship Quilt

My first quilt! I made it with three of my friends when we were 16. I pulled it out of storage today and smiled at the memories. I've loved quilting ever since.
