This will be another short one as I have an open house tonight (local people invited, but yeah… several inches of fresh snow…😅), and class starting Monday! Usually at this time of year I’m in the mad rush to make quilted greeting cards for bazaars. It definitely feels weird to not be (just doing the Raven Art Show November 3rd), but I’m also very excited about doing the class instead! But I thought I’d include a link to a gallery of some of my cards from the past. The greeting cards are great for trying a technique, and you end up with something practical too. I think my grand total for 15 years is around 5,500 now! And hundreds of different designs over the years. I think I have 12 kits and maybe another 12 or so patterns, but that’s a drop in the bucket 😂 Many are inspired by a particular fabric, so aren’t really suitable for a pattern. But I hope these give you some ideas and inspiration! I have another batch coming soon, I hope, that will be very different from any previous ones, hmm… 😃

Happy sewing, and local people, enjoy the snow, and if you don’t live too far away, I hope you will still come tonight, 5-8 pm, 2335 Nugget Loop, between Valatta and Ivory Jacks! Beret

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!
