I've been busy, but I either haven't finished things, or I can't post them, so I'm going back to the archives to find a few things to put up! This was one of my first art quilts a few years ago. After I pieced the background, I dyed the whole thing to unify the colors a bit. That took two tries, the first one was too yellow. I'll have to turn that into something else :-) The stitching is all done with Sulky Blendables 12 weight thread, which is quite heavy. It must have been frustrating, because I have since learned to use a larger needle with that stuff! (100/16 usually) I also remember making about a bazillion little quilt blocks trying to get the right colors for the corners of the border...
I am taking an online design class from Roxane Lessa, called Dancing with Design, so that is causing me to go back and look at things I have made in the past. There are things I'd like to change about just about everything I make, but that hopefully we are always learning, it's just part of the process!

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
